The hole is a dogleg right with a creek that runs down the right side of the landing area before bisecting the fairway well short of the green. Since it is the opening shot, you need to be a bit careful to avoid starting the day off on the wrong note. A solitary bunker guards the left side of the fairway some 240 yards out as well as a large tree where the hole turns to the right. That tree serves as the target from the tee. Most players will hit a hybrid or long iron from the tee, leaving themselves a mid- to short-iron into the open, receptive green that is one of the flatter putting surfaces on the course.
