The 14th is the final par-3 on the course and one of the toughest of all the holes.

It plays 200 yards, and 184 yards to the front of the green.

Despite quite a large putting surface, the tee is sheltered from the prevailing wind which makes this tee shot extremely difficult.

Centre of the green is definitely the target.

What’s more, there’s four deep pot bunkers, two on either side, waiting to catch wayward shots.

A very tricky short hole where four pars for the week represents a great return.
