Named after the railway line, which runs alongside the 11th hole.
Walking to the tee you have time to ponder over the difficulties of this long and dangerous hole. The railway runs parallel to the hole on the right for its entire length, with a hooked drive almost certainly lost in thick gorse. A long second shot waits, with the railway just a few yards off the green to the right. The eleventh was rated the most difficult hole in the 1997 Open Championship.
