Perhaps the shortest hole on the course, but as is the case at DeLa, the shorter the hole, the more trees and elevation changes one has to deal with. The fairway rises slightly then slopes both down toward the basket and from left to right. Behind the basket and to the right of the fairway the slope becomes more severe. The first objective on this hole should be to get past the first line of trees. The only sizeable window is along the left side with (for a right-hander) a two-fingered stable disc, allowing it to drift right near the end. Because of the precarious basket placement, any missed putt can easily end up 50 feet away and buried.
