The American golf course architect, Donald Ross, likened his ideal starting holes to that of a firm handshake…”no pushover but at the same time not so gruelling that it might sour golfers”. He could easily have been describing the 1st on the North. Whilst there is ample room off the tee to avoid trouble, bunkers pinch-in on both sides around driving distance.  A solid drive will leave a short iron or pitch but it’s a dangerous gamble as your first shot of the day. The more conservative play with a long iron or hybrid will avoid most of the trouble but leave the more difficult mid iron to an elevated green. If in doubt, playing a little left with your approach takes advantage of a handy backstop, funnelling the ball back onto the putting surface. – Mike Cocking (Course Architect)
