The trade winds are directly behind the player and slightly from the right on the first hole, which is bordered by bunkers on both sides of the fairway. For players to take advantage of the trade winds at their back, the preferred shape of the tee shot should be right to left. With this shot, the player should have little trouble carrying the bunker on the left and will be set up for a short iron into the green. This is a difficult green to read and to hold.
