Baltusrol Golf Club Hole by Hole Guide: Hole 5

Hole 5 – Par 4 – 442 yards

This short-ish par-4 will catch a lot of players out off the tee, with four fairway bunkers left and one right.

Most will opt to hit a five wood or long iron off the tee to leave a mid-iron into this tricky green.

The putting surface features a severe false front and a collection area back-left, similar to the first.

The green is guarded by four bunkers – one left, one short and two right – so par here represents a good score.
