At 495 yards, the fourth is an intimidating prospect, especially when confronted with the towering bunker inset in the hill in front of the tee. Once on the fairway, the mid-iron approach will have to contend with a deep depression in the front-left quarter of the green.
Kent's finest is rightly heralded as one of the jewels in the crown of British golf, and any player fortunate enough to visit will surely understand why St. George's receives such mighty plaudits.
