Hole #1

Men's Par 4 - 435 yards Men's Par 4 - 410 yards Men's Par 5 - 410 yards Ladies Par 5 - 406 yards

One of the most difficult holes on the course, this 435 yard hole favor’s long ball hitters. The fairway which is lined by trees on the left for the first 200 yards opens up to a spacious landing area.With the target area left of center and the fairway sloping left to right; a tee shot to the right can lead to trouble. The second shot to a small green lined by trees on both sides is difficult but a shot short of the green would not be bad and bogie is considered a reasonable score.
