Following scoring opportunities at the two previous holes, the penultimate hole is a test for par over the closing stretch. Players should take note of the pin position from the tee and favor the opposite side of the fairway with the tee shot. A front or right pin should be attacked from the left to avoid the steep slope off the cape bunker on the front right. A tee shot down the right opens up the kidney shaped green to approach a left or back hole location. The view of the downhill second shot is a favorite of the members, and plays to the only domed green on the course. Missing the green here will result in a difficult chip back onto the vaulted surface.
