Stunning views of the Dee Estuary and North Wales will greet you as you approach the tee. This is often the first hole where you turn into the prevailing wind, which can make the next four coastal holes the most difficult.
But with the wind behind I can drive close to the green as long as I find the gully to the left-hand side of the fairway - pull this off and you feel like Luke Skywalker attacking the Death Star.
But anything right will kick the ball into that difficult, hilly rough and limit your view of the flag.
In the right conditions - wind behind and firm fairway - we will no doubt see some of the Open competitors try to drive the green.
