Red Course, Hole 1
158 yard par 3. The opening hole on the original nine at Lacoma is short par 3. The principle feature of this hole is the elevated green with a shallow depression immediately in front of the green and sharp slope on the left the ends in pond. Prominent trees dot the rough to the left front of the green.
Tips from the Pro
This hole only plays 147 yards from the white tees, but the dome-shaped green makes it tricky to keep your tee shot on the putting surface. The pond on the left doesn’t really come into play unless you over-club and hit your drive well left. If you miss short, you will face on uphill chip – if you’re far enough down the slope, the pin will not be visible. The green is not large but offers several difficult pin placements due to the dome shape of the surface.
