Hole 5

PAR 4 ~ BLUE 378 YDS ~ WHITE 368 YDS ~ GREEN 366 YDS 

Is this hole an optical illusion?  The tee box faces directly south toward the strait and is open to the prevailing winds so generally this hole plays long.  In addition the fairway slopes down into a swale then rises again to the green.  This is an interesting par 4 and one that judging distances of carry is difficult to ascertain.  Should you be lucky enough to be on this green in regulation, a tough putt may be waiting for you.  This green has a ridge running front to back and if you are on the wrong side, the chances of a one putt are slim. The green also slopes back to front, particularly in the front;  if the flag is up front do not get past it or you will be three putting. This hole has trees right but open on the left other than for a large waste area which is playable for the most part.  Getting to the green from the waste area is not easy so count on a bogey from there.  This is a double bogey for the higher handicapper and a par for the experts and wannabes.
