You have now arrived at the number 1 handicap or most difficult hole at Ould Newbury.
A long, straight, and slightly uphill drive will leave you with a second shot somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 yards unless, of course, you can hit a tee shot between 275 – 300 yards. Be careful with your second shot as it is a difficult up and down from behind this green, which slopes from back to front. Once again, par is a very good score here.

Don't be fooled by the yardage of this uphill dog leg left par 4.
While the driver can (and should) stay in the bag off this tee, a well paced shot of about 200 yards is a must to prepare for your second to this devilish green. If your approach misses left, right, or long, you might be looking a quick double bogey or worse. Once you find your way to the green you will be very happy with a 2 putt par and a trip down the hill to the 6th tee. Be well aware of the pin location on this hole as there can be multiple breaks between your ball and the cup. Good luck!
Please note that the location of the women's tees on this hole takes the dogleg out of this hole but the rest is played just the same.

The trend towards small greens continues at this, the first of two par 3's at Ould Newbury.
A solid iron shot will carry the tidal marsh in front of you and should place you safely on the green. Be sure you avoid the three small but deep bunkers which guard the front of this hole. If the pin is in the middle of the green you should find yourself with a birdie putt of less than 20 feet.

Players will find plenty of fairway to aim at on this slight dogleg left par 4.
The challenge comes on the second shot to this elevated green which is surrounded by pine and cedar trees. After a drive of 225 – 250 yards the average golfer will be hitting a mid iron for their second while the longer hitters will be looking a 9 iron or wedge. This green is one of the largest and flattest at Ould Newbury.
