A medium length par 4 to start the round. Even though the landing area is generous, an accurate tee shot is required to the centre of the fairway for the best approach to a well guarded green. Long hitters need to be wary of the small target bunker at the end of the dog leg left. Two gentle ridges divide the green into three distinct pin positions. Combine this with the bunkers on both sides and the first will play as a much more difficult hole than first thought.
