This 141metre par 3 (124 from the Members tee and 101 from the Ladies tee) is the shortest on the course and plays slightly uphill from a tee surrounded by landscaping. The tee shot is played over rough ground and with the large central bunker some 15 metres short of the putting surface creating a false sense of distance.
The green area is a healthy size of 554 sq metres, with a variety of subtle pin positions. The green is guarded by a greenside bunker on the left and a swale on the right. Players have to be careful not to miss the green short right, as their balls could end up running some 15 metres from the intended target. It is likely to be the easiest hole on the course.
