This hole gently bears to the right so a tee shot as far left on the fairway as possible is desirable you will have a much easier approach  as it opens up the green, however the copse of trees on the left need to be avoided. It is vital not to hit your ball to the right anywhere along this hole as there are gorse bushes which grab any stray balls, never to be seen again. The long hitters need to be aware of the fairway bunker about 60 yards short of the green.

The walk towards your drive allows you to gaze out over the North Sea and watch the shipping going in and out of Teesport. Your second is usually a short iron into a large flat green that is scenically framed by fir trees and is often seen as the last easier birdie opportunity!
