The first hole at Country Club at Muirfield Village is a par 4, measuring 411 yards from the championship tees. The fairway curves slightly to the left and has an average width of 42 yards. There are four bunkers on the hole, with one greenside bunker as a percent of total. This hole plays slightly downhill and can be reached in two shots for longer hitters. However, players should be aware that wind conditions vary greatly throughout the year due to seasonal changes in temperature and altitude; during peak summer months, gusts may affect ball flight up to 10-15%. A safe tee shot should favor the right side of the fairway leaving a mid iron approach into this large green (7277 sq ft). Players with shorter drives should stay short of the bunkers off the tee while still leaving themselves enough room for their second shot.

Club Recommendations

1. Aim for the right side of the fairway with a tee shot to avoid any potential bunkers and provide yourself with an ideal approach angle into the green.

2. Consider club selection carefully; if you are hitting into windy conditions, opt for a longer club than usual to ensure your ball reaches its intended target.

3. Take advantage of the downhill slope by using less backswing on your second shot to keep it below any gusts that may be present in peak summer months.

4. Keep in mind that this is a large green (7277 sq ft) so make sure you have enough club to reach it safely while still keeping your ball below the hole location when possible - this will help minimize three-putts!
