Hole #1 at TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course is a challenging par 4 that plays 410 yards from the championship tees. It requires a slight dogleg left off the tee, with an approximate fairway width of 42 yards and no water hazard in play. The green area measures 9826 sq ft, and there are 0 greenside bunkers as a % of total.

The hole should be approached differently depending on the season due to changing weather conditions in Scottsdale; during summer months, temperatures can reach up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit which will affect ball flight distance and direction significantly compared to cooler winter months when temperatures drop into low 50s. Altitude also affects ball flight, making it important for golfers to adjust their club selection accordingly when playing this hole year-round.

For players hitting around 217 yards off the tee with driver, they should aim slightly left center of the fairway while keeping an eye out for any wind gusts that could cause their shot to drift offline or even take them into trouble if hit too far right side of the fairway near trees/rough area. For those playing from Pro Tees (366 yds), they may consider using 3 wood instead as it will provide more accuracy than driver due to shorter distance required off tee box. In terms of approach shots onto green, golfers hitting 140 yards with 7 iron should plan for a mid-iron shot aiming towards middle/right side of green based on yardage requirement and slight dogleg left shape; 120 yard shots with pitching wedge are also possible but require golfer’s precision since greenside bunkers pose potential risk factor if not executed properly by player given its 0% bunker count present on green itself.

Club Recommendations

Overall, golfers should be mindful of adjusting their club selection based on season and altitude while keeping an eye out for any wind gusts that could affect ball flight direction/distance off tee box. For approach shots onto green, they should plan accordingly based on yardage requirement and slight dogleg left shape; accuracy is key since there are no greenside bunkers present to help bail players out if shot goes offline.
