A difficult hole to finish with. A slight dog leg right with out of bounds to contend with. Position yourself in the fairway to have a chance of reaching the green. A bunker will catch anything short and left. Put it into the heart of the green and putt for glory in front of the clubhouse.
Don’t be too greedy off the tee or over ambitious with your second shot. For all but the best, your second shot to the narrow green alongside the clubhouse is, long and intimidating with the clubhouse patio out of bounds on the right, and a line of white beam and cherry trees and a steep faced bunker on the left. A par or even a Bogey lifts the spirit and leaves you eager for your next round at Houghton-le-Spring.
