Emerald Reef Golf Club, Fourth Hole, Sandals Emerald Bay Resort, Bahamas

The fourth at Emerald Reef Golf Club at Sandals Emerald Bay is a 279 yard par 4. It requires a 175 yard carry over a lagoon inlet to a relatively narrow fairway bordered by jungle and a rock wall right and lagoon left. A sand trap wraps around the back, the right and a cut of the right front of the green. I twice nearly drove this green and was only a chip and putt from birdie.

This is a great hole because it rewards shorter, more accurate drivers of the ball with a good chance at birdie. Greg Norman said that he tried to have holes on the course that were playable by everyone, and this is a testament to his philosophy. I love this hole.
