Depending on wind direction, this opening hole will play either as an easy lead into the front nine or as one of the most demanding holes on the course. Typically, the wind is at your back. Longer hitters will easily carry the fairway bunker on the right hand side, setting up a mid to short iron approach to a well-guarded green. Into the wind, it will take a big tee shot and a long iron or fairway wood to have any chance at birdie. Consider taking one extra club on the second shot as the front of this green is protected on both sides by sand and water.
