This hole is played over ground once mined for shells and evidence of this can be seen in the exposed pits that border the fairway. The main obstacle to avoid is the salt marsh down the left which runs the full length of the hole and a reminder of what this ground looked like centuries ago. Whilst the ideal line for the second shot is dependent on the pin position of the day, the preferred line is close to, or over, the ‘Principal Nose’ bunkers on the left. A putting surface with three obvious plateaus, this green took inspiration from the ‘double plateau’ concept often used by Charles Blair Macdonald and Seth Raynor.
