To lay-up short of the bunkers is more advisable and play for the pitch and putt.

Hole 2 Plan

About Hole 2

The new Hole 2 is a risk and reward short par 4 which is drivable for the big hitters, however the narrow and Out of Bounds all down the right hand side favours an iron off the tee and pitch to the small undulating green (which is a little slower than the more established greens of the course).
