Not the easiest of opening holes, most players will aim up the right side of the fairway to counteract the slope and to avoid the OB hedge running down the left-hand side. Aim just inside the tall tree on the brow of the hill which is 240 yards from the back tee (plays 255 yards uphill). Bailout to the right too much and you’re facing an almost certain bogey as you’ll be blocked out by the trees. The difficulty with the second shot is that most players will have an uphill lie with the ball above their feet (right-handers) which is challenging in itself. Players will find it a safer bet to chase their approach shots to the right corner of the green as the ball gathers rapidly to the left, missing the green left or long will leave a very difficult up and down. To most players a par here will feel like a birdie!
The Back Nine
Same description as the first, although this right side tee tends to find players hitting a little more towards, rather than away from the OB Hedge.
