1st Hole – Cabot Links

This short par 5 playing right to left is protected on the left by a fairway bunker. Another large bunker is cut into the dune on the right but is in play for only the strongest of players. The landing area for the second shot is framed left and right by bunkers and a grass depression. Strategically, the play is to lay up just in front of these hazards or try for the green in two. The angle of the green is set so an approach from the right side leaves a relatively open shot. Immediately left of the green there is an area of hillocks and depressions reminiscent of hole #3 at Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland. The right side is protected by two deep pot bunkers. Although the hole is short, more often than not it plays into the wind.
