The first hole is 393 yards from the medal tee and is a slight dog leg left to right. The fence running parallel to the fairway on the right marks the out of bounds. There are some gorse bushes at the corner of the dog leg. The proficient golfer will sail over them and shave the dog leg. Bunkers protect the green front left, and to the right. Any drive which misses the fairway may introduce the wayward golfer to one of the regular features on the course – heather, acres of it.
