The fourth hole at Tam O’ Shanter combines significant length with a need for precision. The hole is a dogleg to the right, with large trees along the right side, and out-of-bounds to the left. A drive in the rough means a tree will block the second shot, both from the right or the left, but even a drive in the right half of the fairway will mean that the player must contend with a large tree that hangs over the right-hand side of the fairway. The large green is fairly flat, with no sand bunkers. A good score is possible with well-played shots, but so is a big number.
