PAR 5 | 331 – 515 YARDS
About this hole
The first of three par 5s on the front nine, the fourth hole is also the first of the split-fairway holes. Starting from the ridge that also serves the third green, the tee shot hugs a grove of oaks to the right to a landing area that fades away from the golfer. Beyond the grove, the expansiveness of Braemar comes into view for the first time.
One feature of the upper route is a chance for the better golfer to use the strong right-to-left slope to shape a wood or long-iron from right to left. Properly executed, the shot should kick on the down-slope and roll onto the putting surface from there.
