Hole #1, Par 4 (#17 Handicap)
Great Hope starts you off with a relatively short Par 4. From the tee box there is a decent sized fairway with room for you to miss on the left. But Beware! There is Out of Bounds markers running down the entire right side of the hole. For the shorter hitters a good drive will leave you with a mid to long iron into the green. Longer ball strikers have the chance to attack the green with a wedge in their hand with a good tee ball, but any off line drive may cause you to be blocked out by the U shaped group of trees surrounding the green. The putting green is protected by a front left bunker and trees to the left, right and back of the green about 10 yards off the putting surface. Try to attack this pin and score as the lengthy #2 is next.
