Hole 1 (Hillocks) - 401 Yards, Par 4

Professional's Tip

"You'd better bring your golf swing with you on the first tee. From the back tees you have a challenging 160-yard carry to overcome and, although the fairway is generously wide, anything short of a 230-yard carry will meet the upslope and reduce the running shot down to a mere trickle. This results in a 401-yard hole playing more like 450 yards. To challenge your skills the green is small, protected by two 'sentry' bunkers and is set above an incline, reducing your chance of running the ball onto the green. A front pin position seduces you into a false sense of security and then exposes you to a fast sloping green.

"This hole is a real beauty and if the course hasn't got your attention when you started then it will have by the time you walk to the second tee."
