The feature of the hole represented by this plan is the large pit extending diagonally across the fairway.  It is evident that the player who successfully negotiates the longest carry over this hazard leaves himself a only a mashie pitch to the green.  However, there are shorter carries to be attempted, each followed by a more risky approach.  This plan was prepared for the remodeling of the Old York course.  Originally the Island Green was open to a mashie shot from the teeing ground over the Alps.
