After a breather on the 8th hole, you come to one of the toughest holes on the Lodhi course. At around 450 yards, the 9th requires an absolute precise tee shot favoring the left centre of the fairway. Not only do you have to make sure you hit the fairway but you have to hit it around 270 yards to the top of the slope to have easy access to the green, which has now been contoured in the front. The top right pin position over the greenside bunker is one of the toughest pins to get close to on the course and a par here definitely sets you up in a good frame of mind for the back nine.
