Par 4 - HCP 9 281 301 324
Once on the tee of this pretty par 4, you will see that the ideal shot from the tee is of course a draw. The contour of the fairway will kick a center cut 175-yard draw shot another 50 yards toward the green in many cases. If you play a fade, your best bet is to go for less distance, keeping it in the fairway, short of those trees bordering the right side. You will still have a good approach shot. The more risky alternative is a play it our over the left corner of the fairway with a driver and let it fade back into the fairway. Once over the corner, the fairway does open up on the left side and this is the ideal approach angle.
