Most would think that at 405 yards, this to be a tough opening hole but you will see when reaching your tee-shot, the fairway falls away down to the green, thus shortening the hole somewhat.
Although the green slopes from back to front it is a difficult green to hold. The advice would be to take a club less as most balls that land 20 yards short manage to reach the putting surface.
Fantastic day out. Golf day organised through work. Warm welcome at club house and good facilities. Well presented course.
