Hole 1 – Cup
410 yards – Par 4 – Stroke Index 10
A reasonably gentle introduction to Carnoustie Championship golf course. The drive is played to a wide fairway with slopes which tend to take the ball to the right hand side, and should pose no real problems although the burn meandering in front of the 1st tee can intimidate the nervous golfer.
The 2nd shot is one of the few blind shots to be played at Carnoustie and it is important to judge the distance correctly.
“Ideally left centre of fairway off the tee which will allow you to see the whole of the green.”
