Hole 1

first hole panorama

The opening hole at Cheltenham is a nice easy two hundred and eighty three metre par four which favours a slight right-left draw for the average golfer.  Long hitters will easily fly the fairway bunker leaving a wedge to the green.

Those who tend to fade or slice the ball will be challenged by the trees on the right and an accurate second shot is required to avoid the bunkers surrounding the green.  The green slopes from back to front and pace is the key.
