The 2009 Open Championship:
9th hole – Bruce’s Castle, 449 yards, par 4
The ninth is the first of the two real signature holes on the course, with the lighthouse on the left hand side. It’s an awkward tee shot as you cannot see the fairway and also the ball tends to kick away. Downwind it doesn’t play too long, but the difficulty is hitting the fairway, or if you have missed the fairway, controlling the distance from the rough. The green is more or less in a bowl so you will see birdie opportunities on this hole.
