Hole 9 - Perfect Play Explained

009 Ailsa


This spectacular par 4 hole requires an accurate tee shot. With the prevailing wind helping there is no need to always hit a driver on this hole as accuracy is much more important than distance. A cairn stone can be seen from the tee that shows the centre of this fairway but it is a fairway that is notoriously hard to hit as it tends to throw balls left or right depending on where they land. Missing the fairway right or left can leave a difficult approach shot from an awkward lie. The perfect tee shot will leave a shot of only some 140 yards. The approach shot must be accurate as getting up and down from around this green is a daunting task. A large mound on the left side of the putting surface can make a putt from the front of this green extremely difficult.
