This cool looking hole can provide a challenge with a stiff wind if you’re in between clubs. Even after sticking the green, you’ll still have a tough birdie putt! Lots of blow up potential on this hole, as you can see from the numbers — average score is only par, so be safe!

Keep in mind the effects of the elevation here: cross winds still have a large effect, but tailwinds won’t affect you quite as much — tee shots may come in “hot”, reducing the impact of the slope, and the up 10 won’t stop the ball as quickly. Don’t over-compensate for a head-wind either since the ball won’t be in the air as long for the wind to pull it back!

Here’s an example hole-out.
