Peter Alliss' Course Guide




« Back Next »
This hole has been lengthened by another 35 yards this year. It's a left to right dogleg, but the fairway goes right to left, so the camber goes the wrong way. You really need a cutter off the tee to hold it up down the right hand side.

The green has been enlarged at the back. This happened when Rae's Creek, the stream that ran through the course, flooded a few years ago. They've now got a flag position back left which is a real beauty - it really is a tester.

There's nothing on the right-hand side, so there have been lots of people bailing out in that direction. Then they are left with a long chip and run, downhill, very fast, with the water just eight or 10 feet beyond, so accuracy is a great thing.

Many people will remember Larry Mize chipping in outrageously to win the Masters in 1987 when it looked odds-on that he would lose.
