HOLE 7 – ‘PLANTATION’
PAR 4 | 410 YARDS
Again the out of bounds threatens on the left hand side and the fairway bunkers are cleverly placed to catch the drive pushed only slightly to the right.
2007: RANK: 12 | SCORING AVG: 4.033
HOLE 8 – ‘SHORT’
PAR 3 | 187 YARDS
Carnoustie’s first par 3 and well worth the wait. On par with the great par 3′s in world golf with out of bounds left and bunkers surrounding an elevated green.
2007: RANK: 10 | SCORING AVG: 3.144
HOLE 9 – ‘RAILWAY’
PAR 4 | 474 YARDS
The drive is paramount on this hole with out of bounds left, a ditch on the right and numerous fairway bunkers. Finding the fairway always comes as a welcome relief to any player but then a long difficult approach to a well-protected green awaits.
