From the back deck, the first hole at The Valley boasts a beautiful view but challenging task. Fortunately, it plays much easier from the member tees to gently ease you into the round.
The fairway is generous, and a good tee shot will leave no more than a mid to short iron into a well protected, multi-tiered green with OB over the back.
Be mindful of the wind direction and strength on your approach which is not always apparent from the fairway.
Please wait for the group ahead to reach the green before teeing off.
