    Maybe its just me, but I think hole #9 still plays a lot longer than the yardage says... still, I suck because even though I know this I can't get it on the green in reg!!! 

    This is the toughest hole: vary narrow lead up, and the lead up drifts away from the green to the left and to the right.  I've never been able to land short and roll up on.  It's best to land over the pin and at least be on the green in reg.

    My 2 cents.

    I agree this is a challenge. I try to aim a bit right from tee, to improve the angle on the next shot. In front of the green you can see the terrain will make your ball roll to the right, so I aim left. But beware of bunker in the line. Typically then your I3 (190yds) can take you 185yds. You can gain a few yds by adding top spin.
    Hitting perfect is very important here.
