The championship tees on this hole are the same elevation as the fairway, while the regular tees are well below the level of the fairway. The landing area for tee shots is fairly wide and flat. The fairway starts to slope gently downward about 250 yards from the green, which makes the hole reachable in two with a couple of mammoth shots. A bunker guards each side of the green, which is fairly narrow. The green does have some back-to-front slope, but it is deceiving — it isn’t as sloped as it appears. After the previous four tough holes, this one is a nice relief.
