Jack Nicklaus, Course Designer
The first hole at Gleneagles is slightly downhill and a slight dogleg to the right. There’s a bunker on the right side of the fairway, which should not present a great problem for most of the players in The Ryder Cup. However, if you hit the ball in the rough, the green is a relatively narrow one protected by a bunker in the front and a grass hollow behind it.

Andrew Jowett, Head Professional at Gleneagles Resort
Most players take a driver and hit past the fairway bunker on the right. This leaves a slight downhill approach to the green. The safe approach is to the left centre of the green, even when the pin is positioned back right (on last day).
