Hole #1 - 330 yards, Par 4 - 3rd most difficult hole
This hole slopes down for the first 220 yards and then has a slight upslope to the green. There is a line of pine trees on the right and a new pond that guards the green from 100 yards to the front edge of the green. Once you reach the flat heavy rough lines the left side. The approach to the green is orientated towards the right. Drives to the left of the fairway or farther will require an approach shot over a newly designed bunker that is deep and unforgiving. In addition there is a new bunker on the right front of the green that is just like the one on the left.
This is a two tiered green. The green slopes back to front. Over the green is out-of-bounds. You never want to be above the hole on your approach shot. Because of the severity of the slope, putts (on either tier) that just go past the hole will end up a couple to several feet by. If the pin is on top and you miss the hole you may be left with a 30-foot return putt. The most difficult pin placement on this hole is front right.
