Hole 1

Chestnuts

Pro's Tip

A long straight drive short of the ditch is required on this testing opening hole. From the top of the hill a fairway wood or long iron is required to a deep green that subtly slopes from front to back.

Alternative Commentary

Not everyone plays the course the same way as a professional.
Here is an alternative commentary provided by a male, right handed Kenilworth member with a mid range handicap.

We use coloured flags to denote pin placement at the front (red), middle (yellow) and back (white) of the greens but it is worth taking a look at the flag on the sixth green immediately to your right to help you when you play it later.

Our first few holes are amongst our hardest, so don’t be too dispirited if you start slowly. In particular this hole is the hardest on the course but CONGU dictates that we cannot make it stroke index 1.

Big hitters will need to watch out for the ditch crossing the fairway just out of sight about 160 yards from the green although very big hitters can clear it. Laying up on the brow is a safe option leaving a long second shot.

It is tempting to go for the green if you get a good drive but beware of the ditch on the left hand side which is out of bounds and not a hazard and the two bunkers at the front of the green. A lay up, chip on and two putts will get you a good net par.

If you do go for the green from distance, either with your second shot or more likely your third after a chip out of the trees, the hole plays short as the ball will run slightly downhill towards the back of the green. Beware of the ditch at the back as it is out of bounds like the ditch on the left.
