Most would think that at 405 yards, this to be a tough opening hole but you will see when reaching your tee-shot, the fairway falls away down to the green, thus shortening the hole somewhat.
Although the green slopes from back to front it is a difficult green to hold. The advice would be to take a club less as most balls that land 20 yards short manage to reach the putting surface.
Excellent course. Scorching weather for last 2 weeks and the greens were like carpets... birdied 2 par 5’s and a par 4...
