Weatheroak (Blue/Red) - Hole 9

Blue Hole 9 –  If you wish to get close to the green in two  this right to left par 5 dog-leg requires a high tree shot with draw.  From tee to green the hole rises several feet to the road crossing the fairway, before gradually flattening out to the green protected by a bunker on the right.

 

Pro's Tip

  

9th Blue – This hole is a challenge for the low handicapper – a right to left dogleg with a very high carry over trees rewards the brave with an uphill 200 yard approach shot to the green.  The Club players will play the hole conventionally with a tee shot to the corner of the dogleg, a 3-wood and short iron to a generous green guarded on one side by a bunker.  Don’t be tempted to attack the flag when it is positioned at the back of the green otherwise a delicate chip back is needed to save face.
