Hole 1 — 457 yards, Par 4
Opening quite serenely, the downhill, straightaway hole is a challenge for any player. Off the tee, play a driver or a three-wood, depending upon which club is the straighter. Even with a solid drive you are left with a challenging second shot — low handicappers and big hitters may choose to try to get home in two, but most mortals will lay up, leaving a delicate pitch shot to a green fronted by three large bunkers. The green has two tiers with the pin usually cut to the back. Definitely a tough way to start.

Getting on in regulation here takes a strong drive. If you go for the green on your second shot favor the left side to avoid the bunkers and give yourself a chance to roll it on.
