A gentle, slightly downhill opening hole to ease you into the round. The fairway is guarded by bunkers on either side with the approach to the green having bunkers to either side at the front of the green. The green slopes from front to back and is deceptively hard to hold the ball without running to the back of the green. There is a ditch running the full length of the left hand side of the hole, with out of bounds beyond onto the driving range. Go long with your approach and you will also be out of bounds.
