An Avon (The River) is a long, tough par-4 where the ideal drive challenges the Machrie Burn on the left-hand side. From there, the reward is two-fold – a shorter approach and a better view of the green. Drive to the right and a blind second-shot awaits. The green sits below the level of the fairway and is relatively small in comparison to others at The Machrie. So, with little room for error – although short is better than long – accuracy is a must.
