Like the best short par fours around Melbourne, the 7th asks a lot of questions from the tee and they can vary week to week, even day to day. Different wind direction, how well you feel about your game and, of course, different pin position. Holes like this should tempt the best players to try and drive the green under certain conditions, but a bad swing or mental error can, and should, lead to disaster. For those not wanting to gamble, the best play is laying up somewhere near the corner of the dogleg. More often than not, the best line into the green is from the right from as close to the sprawling sandy waste as you can. On occasions though, when the pin is hanging up on the right, the strategy is reversed and best angle becomes the left side of the fairway from as far up the hole as you can muster. – Mike Cocking (Course Architect)
