In the early 1980’s pairs of Fir Candle trees were planted on all the Par 4’s & Par 5’s – one on either side of the fairway, 150 yards from the centre of the green. Two fine examples can be found on this Hole. They are a unique feature of Handara and may help to explain why your Caddy always has a good idea of how far you are lying from the green. Many more can be seen lining both sides of the Driving Range. A member of the Cypress family, they can grow as tall as 30m.
An uphill par 4 which runs straight from tee to green. The fairway bunker on the left sits about 165 yards from the putting surface. It is the green though which strongly defends this Hole. It is oblong shaped (deeper than it is wider), slopes severely from back to front and is guarded by a bunker on the right hand side.
Pro’s Tip – check the pin placement. Do not be long as putting downhill on this green should be avoided at all costs.
