New tee at Golf Club Praha, #5 . . . it’s been there for a few years, anyway, but never used . . .
Played it first time yesterday . . . instead of a 6 or half5, I hit a full 3iron, against the wind, uphill, to an awkward angle . . .
From the normal tee, 145m, 4m higher elevation, it’s a much friendlier approach: if you land right, the slope will pitch you back onto the green, maybe . . . as before left is just death.
Apparently they’re changing the green contours, too, making it peanut shape instead of bean shape, so I was in the enlarged fringe, on the big slope leading to that back tier. Whoa!
Hole was ‘pretty’ hard before, now it’s a bear . . . and I think, design-wise, a sorta breather is a nice consideration after the Big Bear of a par 5 #4.
