“It is one of the great holes of golf in a match play situation – the green nestles between the lake and mature trees to provide a memorable and picturesque setting – it provides the possibility of birdies, eagles or disasters”. — Ken Brown, former Ryder Cup competitor, discussing the par 4, no. 10 hole.
