The drive is the most important feature of the hole. A straight drive will reward most players with a friendly approach to the green. Missing left or right of the fairway will cause problems with a tree lined fairway that opens up into the approach.
Longer hitters will want to shape their ball left to right to avoid running through the fairway. Missing right of the fairway will penalize players with a difficult downhill lie and forced carry over the right green-side bunkers. Players will want to avoid go long on the approach to avoid the hazard wrapping the back side of the green.
Play where you live. live where you play.
