Hole 1 - 453 Yards, Par 4

Pro's Tips

Intermediate:

The opener at Olton GC requires two of your finest blows to get home in regulation; if you are unable to reach with your second, take care with your layup and avoid the second fairway bunker. Approach shots short will end up on the apron run off leaving a straightforward chip/pitch shot – don’t be too disappointed if you walk away with a bogey 5, with a SI of 5 it is easily done! 

Advanced:

At 453 yards and slightly uphill, a well struck tee shot to the left of the fairway bunker will leave a mid/long iron into a green that is elevated and guarded by bunkers left and right - the prevailing wind tends to be into, so take an extra club to ensure you hit the green in regulation.
