Hole 13 Go to 12

No. 13

189 Yards
Par 3

 

This is a very good, very dangerous par three. The tee shot is over water so short is not great but distance control is vital because the two bunkers to the back left of the putting surface have been redesigned to be deeper and more of a hazard. So by all means take enough club to clear the water but be careful to stop short of the bunkers. If you are in a bunker at the back then the recovery shot from there must be played with precision -- if the ball comes out a shade too quickly then it can gather pace across a fast green and disappear into the water.
