Hole 4

Villa Romana*

Par 4/HCP 11


The white Tee-Off is on the Tee-Offs of the Hole 8!

The fairway is relatively wide. Unfortunately, there is a significant slope to the right into the Rough.

For the second shot into the Green, you should consider the position of the flag.

On the right and the back of the Green is out of bounds.

On the left, there is no out of bounds!

*The name of this Hole is explained in the history of the club.
