One — 448 Yards, Par 4
"Cut the Corner"

Hole No. 1 is a deceptive par 4 with a slight dog leg to the left. From the tee, the hole appears mostly tame; however the approach to the green will be dramatically different with the addition of two greenside bunkers, one front right and one back left. The new front-right bunker has filled the area that was once the low portion of green in the front right and the bluegrass low to the right of the green. This bunker is a visually intimidating sight for approach shots to the front-left and back-right hole locations. The left bunker is positioned to gobble up errant shots to the back portion of the green.
