The 9th hole is the first part of what makes up a tough stretch of holes. This long par 4 doglegs to the left. The south-westerly trade wind will push the ball to the right on the drive. Then the uphill approach plays back into the wind. This is another green where you want the ball under the hole.
The first part of a tough stretch of three holes, a long slight dog-leg. Off the tee, left of centre, is the short way to the green but brings the left tree line into play. Hitting the centre of the fairway is the safest option. The approach shot will require a long iron or a fairway wood. Reaching the green in 2 is a task, so positioning yourself for an easy 3rd shot can be the best way to tackle the hole. The front edge is a good play, leaving you a chance to make par on the hardest hole on the course.
