A challenging opening hole that requires an accurate tee shot, favoring the left side of the fairway, but short of the pond. The pond is approximately 230 to 270 yards depending on the tee selected.
Positioning your tee shot close to the pond will enable you to take advantage of a flat area from which to hit your approach shot over water to an elevated green. Those missing left could invite trouble from one of two bunkers that guard the green. The green slopes back to front so it’s best to keep your ball below the hole.
