The first par 5 hole is a gentle right to left dogleg playing 554 yards down one of the site's discernable valleys.
The drive is downhill to a wide target, but longer hitters will need to be wary of the burn running down the right side of the hole.
This shot offers the option of an easy lay up to a wide target, or the more difficult task of reaching the green. Those attempting to reach the putting surface on their second will need to consider the burn skirting the right side.
Those laying up with their second will be rewarded with a straightforward pitch to the green.
Sloping from back to front, the putting surface will be best attacked from the lay up position.
