Hole 13: Excelsior

Par: 3

Distance: 138 metres

The problem with this hole is that once you get onto the green, getting into the hole is another matter.

It's one of the hardest greens to read and the pin placement does not allow aggressive putting.

There are trees on both sides and a bunker on the left.
