Welcome to the hardest starting hole in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Although the landing zone off the tee is wide, a creek and fescue grasses guard the entire length of the 1st hole. After safely getting the ball into play, the approach to the green is no reprieve. Misses that are long, or right are almost certainly leading to double bogey or worse, while misses to the left lead to a very difficult pitch shot to a narrow green that feeds towards the creek. Once safely on the putting surface, the large knoll in the center of the green makes putting very tricky. Par is an excellent score here to begin your round.
