About this hole
The opening hole begins from an elevated tee tucked into a hillside, providing the golfer with a complete view of the starting hole as well as several surrounding holes. The rumpled fairway leads golfers toward a green pinched by two mounds, both of which bleed into the putting surface and serve as the transition between two tiers.
In a nod to simple greens of a century ago, the approach seamlessly dissipates into the putting surface. The simplicity ends on the green, though, as a precise approach is necessary for anyone seeking a short putt.
The most challenging pin placement is the lower front-right quadrant, which is tucked behind a lone sand bunker and pinched on the right from that side’s mound.
