#9 is a sharp dogleg left par 4, this is a significant risk/reward hole. A long carrying tee shot over the left hand fairway bunker can set up a sand wedge approach, but anything left will end up in significant rough or the hazard with a relatively blind second shot. The safe route off the tee is to the right side, but the sharpness of the dogleg makes going through the fairway a strong possibility. There are also three fairway bunkers on the right that threaten safer tee shots. The green slopes significantly from back to front and has many subtle breaks which can make three putting a possibility. Again, birdies can be found here, but four is a good score.
