Riviera Country Club

The 434 yard par four 5th hole favors precision over power with an ideal position up the left-hand side. There is plenty of room right on the fairway, which slopes hard from right to left, but an approach there can be obstructed by the mound, making for a much more difficult approach compared to the left side. That side carries its own risk as the trees down the left side can block a player out if their shot goes a little too far left. The green has a spine running through it and a steep swale that gobbles up any approach slightly right of target.
