For most golfers, Las Sendas Golf Club’s tenth hole plays as the shortest par five on the course (476 yards from the silver tees, 405 yards from the copper tees). It’s a great hole to score a birdie—or maybe even an eagle! But, the hole’s four greenside bunkers pose a challenge to an otherwise manageable hole (eighteen handicap for men).

Tee Shot: Hit Driver

Hole ten’s tee shot strategy is pretty simple. There are no fairway bunkers to contend with, and the hole plays fairly straight. That’s why the majority of golfers will choose to hit driver. Finding the fairway should be relatively easy—unless you’re dealing with a bad slice or hook.

Planning Your Approach

A solid tee shot usually puts the golfer within striking distance of the green. Keep in mind that the largest of the four greenside bunkers sits directly in front of the green, but going past the green could result in a lost ball and penalty stroke. Simply put, you’ll need an incredibly precise approach shot to be putting for eagle.

Trouble off the tee? Some golfers opt to lay up on the green’s right side, which actually offers the best angle.

Pay Attention to the Green’s Slope

The green on hole ten slopes sharply from the back-left side to front-right. Be aware that a pin location on the back-left side can make the hole play harder than usual.
