The 1st is a gentle opening hole – a par four of just 300 yards.

There is one bunker on the left hand side of the fairway, but it is best to avoid the right hand side where out-of-bounds runs along the full length of the hole and mature trees may block a wayward drive. Avoid the natural hazard, a crater known locally as Dingly Dell, which is located 25 yards short right of the green.   

The green itself is quite large, but beware of being too long and too far right as severe trouble awaits.
