Dai Rees, the former Welsh Ryder Cup Player/Captain loved this hole so much it was named after him. Thick rough dominates the dunes running the length of the right hand side of the fairway. A precision tee shot is needed here to allow any view of the green. The approach shot to the green is what earns this hole its stroke index of 1. The green is raised on a plateau and anything other than an accurate iron shot will kick off sharply to the left or right, an imposing pot bunker guards the front left. The green slopes steeply from back to front which can make putting a nerve-wracking experience on fast summer greens.

Rhys’ Tip

“Sensible play is to leave yourself short of the green and right of the pot bunker and putt your way to safety.
