When you make it in two, don’t waste it. Take a particularly careful look at the6Now here's a little beauty! Little because it’s the shortest of the par threes’.Trees form a relatively narrow path to a pond full of bulrushes and lily pads in front of the green. The green is particularly well bunkered and, although it is receptively sloped,7Slicers beware! Too far right from the tee at this long par four and you can be in trouble.There is a right hand dog leg after the ridge and the green is tiered, which makes it imperative to get close to the pin.
