Hole thirteen is the first of three linking holes that thread their way upwards back to the plateau. It is by far the steepest hole. From the tee, which overlooks the river plain, the hole doglegs its way sharply to the right. As this is a linking hole, the fairway has to rise sharply however, several flat areas allow for a level stance.
Tee-shots can range from a gentle prod to the nearest part of the wide fairway or cutting the corner and going for the green. Deep rough on the right makes the latter a brave choice. Standing on the green, it is worth pausing to admire the spectacular view down the valley to the river and the sea below.
