The first and longest par 3 on the course is 195 metres from the championship tee (180 from the Members tee and 153 from the Ladies tee) . This hole is beautifully silhouetted by the mature pines at the back both right and left, and has a meandering water hazard in play down the left hand side.
The large elevated green (approximately 2.5 metres above the tee) slopes right to left, making putting challenging. The green is protected on the right by two deep bunkers, with mounding and a hollow on the left. It is essential that players select the right club, so that they will finish flag high. This is a difficult hole, par is a good score and a hole that the course will be remembered for.
