Castle Stuart Golf Links – Hole 1 – Par 4 – 439 Yards

 Mon, 27-Jun-2016

THE tee shot on the first is perhaps one of the most unsettling at Castle Stuart – a solid bank of gorse to the left and the full expanse of the Moray Firth to the right. Contrary to your first impression, the play area is fully 60 yards wide and accommodating with supporting upslopes on either side. A modest drive in play leaves a straightforward approach to a green more forgiving to recoveries from the left than the right. This hole can be simplicity itself or it can be a vexing encounter.
