The Dyke

On this Par 4 hole, long hitters can easily clear the first ditch and reach the upper level beyond the second ditch where the green is situated – leaving a short chip onto the putting surface. But the ball may find a difficult lie in the rough, so the percentage play is to lay up before the second ditch and pitch onto the green, leaving an uphill putt as the green slopes down to the ditch.  Short hitters may consider laying up before the first ditch with their tee shots, laying up before the second ditch with their second shots and then pitching to the green. As you approach the green, give way to players on the 12th tee.
