Blue Course, Hole 1 Tips

518 yard par 5. An uphill par 5 with an elevated tee. Trees guard both sides of the landing area. The approach to the green is generous, but beware of long rough on the left and a carefully placed bunker on the right. A large, very deep green makes ball placement critical.

Tips from the Pro
Long hitters can reach the green in two but need perfect tee shoot placement to have a chance for an eagle putt. For best results, place your drive on the right center of the fairway, but only if you can carry the small copse of trees that guard the center-right of the fairway. Shorter drivers are best off playing the ball in the middle to prevent the trees on either side of the fairway from coming into play. Play your second shot to the center-right of the fairway to avoid tall grass on the left and provide the best angle for your approach. Club selection for the approach is key as an incorrectly judged distance can result in a long and difficult putt. Regular players often comment that the green is farther back than it appears on the third shot.
