Hole 1 at Onion Creek Club in Austin, Texas is a 4 par 381 yard hole from the championship tees. It's a slight dogleg right with 5 bunkers and 3% of them are greenside. The fairway width is 38 yards wide and the green area measures 5343 sq ft.

The altitude, temperature, and wind conditions can vary greatly across the four seasons in Austin, so players should take these into account when playing this hole. From April to June temperatures range from 70-90 degrees Fahrenheit while July through September they peak at 95-100 degrees Fahrenheit. In October temperatures drop back down to 70-80 degrees before falling further as winter approaches and winds pick up speed throughout the year peaking late fall/early winter. Altitude will also affect ball flight performance especially during summer months where temperatures can cause air density to decrease by 10%.

For tee shots on Hole 1 it’s best to play slightly left of center off the tee due to its slight dogleg right shape; however be sure not hit too far left as there are out of bounds stakes that come into play if you do! A good drive should leave an approach shot between 140 - 170 yards depending on your club selection for your second shot (7 Iron ~140 yards & Pitching Wedge ~120 yards). Depending on pin position bunker placement may come into play around the green so pay attention when selecting clubs for your second shot!

Club Recommendations

When approaching the green, be sure to account for the 5343 sq ft of area that you'll need to land your ball in. The green is relatively large so if you are hitting a long iron or hybrid into the green make sure to give yourself an extra club and aim away from any greenside bunkers as they can easily cause a bogey or worse if not avoided. Lastly, always keep an eye on your local weather conditions and adjust accordingly!
