A straightforward opener to get the blood flowing and the arms working. Out of bounds beyond the green and two strategically placed conifers in front of it.

The longest hole on the course - no out of bounds to worry about here, but the green is guarded by a deep bunker on the left. Deep rough awaits the right-handed player with a slice. A tricky green, especially if the pin is positioned on the right hand slope.
Playing back up the hill and normally into the wind the distance here can be tricky to get right. If you do get the length, bunkers are waiting left and right to gather anything other than straight.
Stroke index 1 on the scorecard and deservedly so.
A deft touch is required for this, the shortest and easiest hole on the course. A birdie awaits those who can get the ball to stop near to the hole, but be wary on this sloping green for longer putts.
