Hole 5 - Par 5
|Yardage: 508 | 496 | 444 | 416|
This is the first legitimate chance of birdie. Patience is key to playing Richmond and the first four holes indicate that. This is a three-shot par 5 and for longer hitters there is a chance to get home in two. The fairway turns slightly left at the fairway bunker on the right about 240 yards from the tee. From the fairway, the second shot must traverse through a narrow opening in a later water hazard positioned 130 yards from the green. Just beyond the lateral hazard on the left are two bunkers which come into play to collect overly aggressive second shots. The green opens up quite nicely for the third shot. Generous is a relative term when describing Richmond’s greens but this hole allows a reasonable chance to make a birdie.
