Hole 1 Back to Course Overview

Hole 1

435 Yards
Par 4

An excellent starting hole for the PGA Championship, the opening tee shots will be hit from an elevated tee to a landing area framed by bunkers left and right. The hole usually plays downwind, leaving a short-iron approach to one of many undulating greens. The most difficult hole locations are front left, behind a bunker, and the back-right plateau.
