    Default How do you play the 5th hole at Pelican Waters?

    Playing at 349m (black), 334m (blue), 301m (red) The Passage, a gem of a par 4 is not long by any stretch but ranks #4 on both indexes. Even without breeze you are tested with a drive from the back door of former Parramatta coach John Monie's house, with water all the way down the left hand side. Fairway bunkers along the right are around the 220m & 250m. Any ball finding these bunkers will force almost anyone bar the brave to lay up short of the water carry 60m short of the green.

    The approach to the green really only has short/right as an available miss. Anything on the left will find the drink, and a large bunker on the right will leave you with a potential testical shrivelling shot with water waiting to swallow anything caught thin.

    This hole has killed off many a OZgolf champs round and will be sure to do so again. So how do you plan on tackling The Passage?

    How wet is the drink at the moment? Any chance of getting a good bounce off the rocks? I've played from within the hazard before and if the wind is into the face strongly, like it has been before, I might fall in that area again.

    I came off my driver NTP on the 4th into this hole last year (Sunday) and pulled out a rare pull to find the water left and had to reload. Regulation par on the Saturday, up and down for a double on the Sunday.

    I'll take driver off the tee both days to be short of the first trap, and won't be taking any sort of brave line on the approach. I'd take a 5, while giving myself a chance at the 4.

    Don't hold your breath on getting away with one from the hazard.

    (Water level is lower than last year though).

    Driver - 9 Iron will give me my best chance at making a 4/3 or better.

    Are we playing The Passage from the back (no homo).

    Hang on I don't have a 2 iron, so it will be a hybrid pull hook into the piss.

    Is that the hole where we had the nice young ladies in the pool a few years back? Totally lost all my game there, even my ball wanted to cross the water towards them

    Sounds like your memory is shot Mr Naga.

    I think you are talking about the way you play the 1st. Oh hang on - the 2nd. Opps, no that was the 3rd etc etc....

    I'll play driver off the tee, just for something different.
    Birdied this hole in 1 round at both the previous champs. Both times the approach shot was probably the best shot i played for the weekend.

    This holes could be the nemesis of the run away favorite. His standard R to L shot shape isn't ideal for this one. He will have to aim way right.

    As long as it's not hit and run back to the buggy like last year I don't care. I vaguely remember hitting a good drive up the middle. Splashing my second into the piss. Pitching to the back of the green. Three putt then pick up for a wipe.
