Hole 1 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 4, measuring 412 yards from the championship tees. The hole has a handicap of 12 and features three bunkers that are 3% of the total green area. With an elevated tee box, this hole requires a strong drive to position yourself for your approach shot into the slightly undulating green. Weather conditions can vary greatly across all four seasons with temperatures ranging from mild in spring and fall to hot in summer months. Altitude changes may affect ball flight, as well as wind direction which can be especially gusty during winter months due to its coastal location. Given these conditions, it is recommended you use driver off the tee for maximum distance but avoid going too far left or right where out-of-bounds lies await on either side of fairway. For your approach shot, depending on pin placement and yardage remaining, consider using anything between 7 iron (140 yards) - pitching wedge (120 yards).

Playing Tips:

1. Use driver off the tee to maximize distance, but be sure not to go too far left or right where out-of-bounds lies await on either side of fairway.

2. Pay attention to weather conditions and altitude changes that may affect ball flight and wind direction. Gusty winds are common during winter months due to its coastal location so adjust accordingly when selecting club for approach shot.

3. Take into account three bunkers that make up 3% of total green area when assessing your approach shot options as they can cause you to miss the green if you’re not careful with your selection of club and yardage remaining.

4. Consider using anything between 7 iron (140 yards) - pitching wedge (120 yards) for your approach shot depending on pin placement and yardage remaining in order to get closer to the hole for an easier putt towards par 4 score!
