The land has gradually grown more interesting with each hole and for many the par-4 fifth is the front nine’s best hole, a dogleg right over and around rumpled grounds rewards a left-to-right play. A deep green abuts the sea and White Rocks nearby and is generally the course’s most photographed spot, affording incredible views in all directions.

The 189-yard sixth sets up for a left-to-right shaped shot, depending on wind, and gradually narrows to a back peninsula featuring a steep falloff to the rear. Shots that are not shaped into the back third of the green will likely bound through into trouble.
