Men's Par 4 - 410 yards
Ladies Par 5 - 406 yards

The most difficult hole on the course, this 410 yard hole favours long ball hitters. The fairway which is lined by trees on the left for the first 200 yards opens up to a spacious landing area.

With the target area left of center and the fairway sloping left to right.; a tee shot to the right can lead to trouble. The second shot to a small green lined by trees on both sides is difficult but a shot short of the green would not be bad and bogie is considered a reasonable score.

A water hazard to the right and a gathering area to the left make the approach shot to this green delicate, for an easy birdie or a tough par.
