Mountain 6
The Postcard

 

Some golf courses are blessed with iconic views that simply make you stop in your tracks. This is one of them.

 

With an image of the Buddha laser-etched into the mountain in the distance and the spires and rooftops of local temples peeking out from the tropical foliage, you may be forgiven for not paying attention to what is the signature hole on the Mountain course. It is also a very difficult hole.

 

The elevation runs steadily down and away until you find yourself at the bottom of the hill, rising back up to an elevated green. This hole requires two good shoots to get on. The tee shot needs to be reasonably long and quite straight, as there is OB left and loads of trouble right.

 

there is also very little in the way of a flat lie to be had, although a small plateau around the 150 yard mark is the optimal place to be hitting your 2nd shot from.

 

That 2nd shot is really testy. You are hitting over a gully to a green that is heavily protected in front and then quite shallow, meaning that you need to be coming in from a high angle to make it stop in time. An alternative is to play short and left, then show off your chipping and putting skills!
