Hole 5 - Square Meadow, Par 4, 440 yards/402 metres

Tom Lehman: This is a very tough hole and usually plays into a left to right and hurting wind. It is a diagonal tee shot, right to left, so the guy who can draw the ball up the left side would get a bit of an advantage. The green is the real test with this hole because it is perched up on top of the hill and slopes away from you. The front left goes off the left side and the right side dumps into a hollow and the back goes away from you. Again the pin position dictates how you play the hole. In general being long is never a bad place to be apart from when the pin is front left.
