The 170 metre fourth hole provides spectacular views from an elevated tee. However, it’s important the golfer isn’t blinded by its beauty as an errant tee shot will be punished. Water defines the hole and a less than precise shot finds most golfers in the “valley of sin” which will take some finesse to escape. Of course the sand on the left side will also require an excellent shot to secure your three.
Don’t be mesmerised by the view. Play for the left half of the green, regardless of the pin position.
The alignment of this hole was introduced in the late 1920s. In 1987, the creek was diverted to its present channel at the bottom of the hill and the green was raised and rebuilt to where it sits today.
