Hole nine is a short stroll from the eighth green. Instead of heading downhill towards Olivewood’s lake the fairway does an about-turn, winding its way back up the hill. At the apex of its climb, a mere lob shot to the green, the fairway gives the illusion of merging with the thirteenth, however it ducks down sharply before reaching the fairway, then eases into a gradual slope onto the ninth green.
The first hazards are a series of bunkers to the right of the spacious fairway. Up to this point, the ninth could be considered rather easy but this perception changes with any over-hit shot. Behind the green is a steep bank leading to an old farm dam.
