Numerous Cempaka trees can be find bordering this Hole – especially on the left hand side. Typically the trunk splits into two (or more) parts a short distance up from the ground. The white and yellow flowers are sacred to the Balinese as they are closely associated with Durga – the Hindu Mother Goddess – the Protector of the World. The fragrant smelling flowers are much used in offerings and prized by girls who put them in their hair. Some of the World’s most popular perfumes are derived from the essential oils of Cempaka flowers.
Your challenge from the tee is to negotiate the fairway bunkers on both the left and right hand sides. The shortest route to the Hole is over the left hand side bunker which ends about 175 yards before the green. The safer option is to play to the left of the right hand side fairway bunker which ends about 195 yards from the green. The green is oval shaped and is guarded by a fairly deep bunker on the right. The green falls slightly both from back to
front and from left to right.
Pro’s Tip – favour the left side of the green with your approach as the majority of trouble is on the right hand side.
