2018 Europe

Hole 4

Hole 4 – Châteaufort (Châteaufort (renamed in 2016 after The Ryder Cup works after the village next to the course))

Par 4, 486 yards, 445 metres

A hole which went through a major reshaping with the works done two years ago. There was a massive bunker between the fourth and fifth holes, which was nearly 200 yards long. That has been filled in to benefit the spectator experience as you now have sight of both holes. A big drive is imperative here and your second shot could be anything between a mid to short iron depending on the wind. The green is very generous with a massive slope from back to front. If you are ten feet past the pin though, you can have a tough putt coming back.
