Hole 5 - Perfect Play Explained

005 Ailsa

This dramatic dog leg right to left par 4 begins with a drive from an elevated tee. Two fairway bunkers left and two fairway bunkers right frame this tee shot. A drive off the tee favouring the right half of the fairway offers the best angle for the approach shot to this green. The 2nd shot to the 5th, with about an 8 iron, must miss the two devilish bunkers at the front left of the green and any shot that lands short right will gather into the greenside bunker on the right. The green is receptive as it slopes from back to front so you can afford to commit to the 2nd shot fully. Once on the green there are a number of slopes and borrows that make it one of the more difficult greens at Turnberry to hole putts on.
