Hole 10 - Mick Holly, Par 5, 584 Yards/534 metres

Ian Woosnam: Slight dogleg left to right off the tee. If you can get a big drive down there, maybe in the region of 310 yards/320 yards, you've got a good chance of getting onto this well protected green which is heavily bunkered left and right with a narrow entrance in. If you don't quite catch your drive you then have a decision to make. You either lay up to about 120 yards back or take the risk of trying to thread your ball through the bottleneck for about an 80-yard pitch. The green slopes right to left and the ball can run off into the little hollows leaving a variation of chip and runs. It's a very good hole; a good opportunity, especially in a match play situation, to go for the green in two.
