The golfer now faces the longest and most intimidating carry on the course. The drive must be played over a deep and spectacular canyon to the distant fairway turf.
The hole is normally downwind, which may reduce the fear somewhat and the fairway area is generous. The entire hole lies on a shelf with a sharp precipice running all the way down the left side.
The Redan shaped green will offer many varied pin positions. There is plenty of playable area to the right for those choosing a less demanding route to the hole.
