Hole Number One
The first hole offers the player an open-door welcome to the Holston Hills Experience. At 448 yards, the elevated tee lessens the length one might expect necessary. Bending slightly to the left and framed by large trees on either side of the landing area in the rough, the flat fairway slopes ever so gently downward, then rises again short of the green. The green is a two-tiered target set into the natural slope of the terrain. Guarded by bunkers front left and right, the putting surface is quite fair and is best missed short if the approach shot is off the mark. This is a solid opening hole that rewards good play and serves as a perfect introduction to the rest of the golf course.
