“Avenue” – playing the 5th hole

Often played down-wind, when you can carry the right-hand bunker for a handy kick-on to the middle of the fairway. Otherwise aim to pull up just short of the left bunker for a nice line into the green.

Check out the 250 arcs from each tee - the front and back nines play quite differently here.

In summer it is hard to stop the ball on this green, but there is a good landing zone over the greenside bunker which will kick you to the front fringe, or better.
