Hole 5—Par 4
A great Cape hole in the classic sense. When you turn the corner at Cabot Cliffs after the third hole, you’ll have played away from the water and now for the second hole in a row you are heading towards the dunes and ocean, making this one of the most spectacular settings for a green. Certainly one of the most photogenic holes on the course, the fifth can play longer if you are conservative with your tee shot, or much shorter if you bite off a significant part of the ocean marsh. The longest hitters will tackle the inward bunker and it is possible that the most aggressive drivers could be close to reaching the green with an appropriate wind. There’s a tantalizing sense that you get very close to the green with a 290-yard carry over the bunker. It is a big carry, but there is also plenty of room to play it short and hit a mid-iron into the green, which has one of the most interesting green sites on the course.
