Hole 1

Par 4 Men; Par 5 Women

Hole 1 md

Hole #1 from #1 tee box

Without a doubt, one of the toughest #1 tees to tee off in the world!  Not only is the tee in close proximity to the pro shop, scoreboard/dining area, as well as the practice green and all the accompanying noise which accompanies the closeness of everything but as one tees the ball up and looks down the fairway, the middle of the fairway is obscured by a giant tree!   Added on top of that is the pressure of knowing that the pro shop staff may have the PA system on and announce your name or critique your opening tee shot.

Gold Tees:  387 Yards
Blue Tees:  376 Yards
White Tee:  371 Yards
Red Tee:  366 Yards

Anyhow, once we’ve teed off and hopefully hit the tee shot either over or around the tree the hole doesn’t get much easier.  A small pond protects the last 100 yards to the green and a small two level green is hard to hit on your approach shot.  It’s important to keep the ball toward the middle of the green and on the same level as the hole.  This is a difficult starting hole and even low handicap golfers are glad to make a par here!
