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 place for a seasoned golfer such as myself and also has a fantastic beginners course. Really beautiful surroundings make it a great place to visit.
