It’s a 230 metre straight hit from the blue tees to the middle of a heavily contoured green, guarded well by bunkers short left and right. The safer conventional play from the tee is to the corner with a middle to long iron, leaving a wedge or short iron for the approach. This hole’s best defence is the green which will grab your attention no matter from where you are putting. The other feature of note with No 9 is OB left. No need to go there.
