Continuing with Carnoustie’s fearsome finish, the Barry Burn winds and twists it’s way down this hole. The drive must be placed between the island part of the hole and then the player is left with a long difficult approach to a green protected by whins and bunkers.

Caddie’s Tip

“The line from the tee is the gable end of the white house, which means you are aiming for the right half of the island. Water awaits the hooked tee shot.”
