The 12th is a great dog-leg to the left.
For the Open the tee has been put so far back that the players will have a blind drive. For us mere mortals it is still a long carry from our own tee just to reach the fairway.
Anything too straight and long could find a series of bunkers, while a new bunker on the left can catch those who are trying to cut the corner.
And once you have hit the fairway you then face a difficult approach to a raised green with appalling trouble on both left and right.
The green is regarded by the members as the trickiest on the course as we often find ourselves putting across the slope and even a simple two-footer can be a bit of a knee trembler.
