Alltan - a small stream, definitely a feature of this hole!

 

Although the yardage might make this look like a tempting blind drive for the long hitter, especially from the forward 17th tee, the trouble just short of the green makes this a dangerous gamble - which should now be obvious after playing this hole as the 8th. The percentage shot is to lay up, either on top of the hill near the marker post, or allowing the ball to run off the hill towards the far left corner of the fairway, leaving a short level shot to the green.
