The fifth hole is a medium-length par 4 that is deceivingly straightforward. From the back deck, the tee shot must navigate out of a deep slot of dense woods left and right to a generous landing area protected only by a large maple, which shadows the right side of the fairway. The hole shows no bunkers, but rather a series of mounds and slopes down the left side that extend through the length of the green.
The front right of the putting surface is protected by a steep-sloped grass bunker. The deep, narrow green is elevated above the fairway and is often subject to swirling breezes, requiring precise club selection for the approach to a front pin.
