The plateau of Hole 9 has been known as the yew garden since the beginning of the land register. The name has been preserved over the years, but there are only a few yew trees near the green.
The longest par 4 of the course leaves some options open. The further you stop on the right, the stronger the gorge comes into play and the shorter the following second blow after a successful attempt. However: The more you shorten this dogleg in this way, the more blind the blow into the green above the fairway.
