Running parallel to the seventeenth fairway, the trees that separate the holes are the biggest danger to the right of the fifth fairway. The fairway narrows in the landing area of long hitters whilst a shorter shot will take advantage of the widest part of the fairway. Approaching the elevated green from the fairway offers its own difficulties which are compounded by a front bunker that extends the width of the green. The putting surface slopes downhill from back to front and can be one of the faster putts on the course. The no-go zone for approach shots is beyond the green as the chip shot that results makes for a tough up-and-down.
