This is Hole #2:
This 493 yard slight dog-leg left hole is the shortest par 5 on the golf course. Trees line both sides of the fairway requiring a precise tee shot. Short hitters must favour the right side of the fairway on their tee shot. The second shot is a mid to short iron which sets up a third to this very deep green. For the long hitters, you must successfully draw your tee shot around the corner if you are to hit your second shot to the green.
Jamie elected to use a 3 wood off the tee and then a 4-iron for his second shot (225 yds) to get onto the green (Red flag indicating the pin was at the front of the green). A chance at an Eagle if you can get on the green safely in two shots!
This is Hole #1
This straight away 358-yard par 4 is a fair test for a starting hole with water located short and to the right of the green. However, your immediate concern is to clear the tree that stands in the middle of the fairway 185 yards from the teeing ground. Bunkers are positioned at both sides of this deep and undulating green making your second shot interesting.
Here's Jamie showing you how to grab a birdie from the get-go and setting the right mood for your game. A 253-yard drive just past the tree, a 105-yard approach with a 54 degree wedge and a 10-foot put.
