The Course - Hole 1

Par 4

Yards 442

Stroke Index 10

A difficult opener requiring a well struck drive over a valley known as “The Kitchen” – a carry of over 250 yards from the championship tee – favouring the flatter left side of the fairway.

The wide green, sloping away from the player and with bunkers stretching across its front, can only be held with a high, spinning second shot. Those playing safe, Goldfinger among them, often aim for the gulley to the right.
