An ideal opening hole that usually plays downwind, as does much of the front nine for that matter. This medium-length par-4 unfolds into the distance with all its features in clear view from the tee. A generous fairway awaits and a good drive will bring the large green, that slopes towards the player, into comfortable range.
It is tempting to err right with the drive but if you are brave enough to hug the left, the approach does become easier. Should your second shot finish beyond the pin, it will leave a speedy opening putt that can catch the unwary out.
