Castle Stuart Golf Links – Hole 9 – Par 4 – 403 Yards

 Mon, 27-Jun-2016

Recently lengthened by more than 30 yards, long-hitters with the wind behind them can make it close to the green in one but they need to take a line down the fairway right of the putting surface, where the contours and a little right-to-left ball flight can bring your ball onto the back portion of the green. A less than solid strike will leave the ball in the fairway hollow short and right of the green, resulting in an awkward blind shot to a less-than-receptive green. A drive aimed straight at the flag can bring the largely-hidden intruding finger of the leftside ‘open sandy area’ into play.
