Memorable Hole Make or Break
Par 4 14th Foxy. The only hole without a bunker, it has a plateau green on a promontory broad on right and narrowing to some 8 or 9 yards on left. The steep rise at the front of the green varies from 5ft. on the left to 10ft. on the right. The left of the fairway is a wide expanse of mounds with bent grassy and mossy patches. Right of the fairway are several grassy promontories jutting out towards the fairway and guarding the right of the green. Par 3 2nd Ord . Plateau green (one of many) with steep fall on both sides and rear. Two deep bunkers guard front of green with a grassy mound between, which diverts a short shot into either bunker.
   
Summary  
Classic links of rare subtlety in a splendid setting. Golfers will find the target well presented, although rarely easy to reach.
