The signature hole of Venice: the most loved and hated hole of the course. It looks like a par 3 of 155 metres with an elevated starting point from which you have to get over a mound that conceals a green, identifiable only when one considers that it is located to the left of the big pine visible from the tee box. The green is long, narrow, sideways and all uphill; if you fail to hit to the centre, mistakes are punished by a bunker to the left and rough to the right.
Two different irons depending on the position of the flag, which you have to make sure of when you start at the tee of hole 1 that runs along this green. While is easy to calculate the slope uphill from the beginning towards the end of the green, calculation of the treacherous sideways slope is a much trickier matter.
The sole objective is to overcome the mound. In any event it is better to stay short of the green because a wrong shot will inevitably get caught in the bunker on the left, the rough on the right or, if it is too strong, roll over the slope after the collar.
