Hole 13 - Perfect Play Explained

013 Ailsa


This short par 4 from an elevated tee must be given respect despite its yardage. A rescue club hit to the right half of this fairway would be the ideal position for the approach shot. Three fairway bunkers on the left must be avoided as must some mounding in the rough over on the right side. This green is better suited to receiving a full 2nd shot, I have left myself 160 yards here which would be a 7 iron. There is a steep rise up to this narrow green so distance control with the approach shot is the way to playing the hole. Missing this raised green on all sides will leave an extremely difficult drip shot. A ridge runs through the middle of this green and finding the correct tier offers the best opportunity of holing a birdie putt.
