What's Your Favourite Golf Hole From Any Of The Golf Courses In Wiltshire?
1st hole at Ogbourne Downs. Looks easy but difficult to par.
Hole 1 Par 4
WHITE 329 YARDS | YELLOW 324 YARDS | RED 309 YARDS
Aim up the left hand side of the fairway to allow the gentle slope of the fairway bring the ball back into the centre.
Avoid missing this green on the right or you face having a tricky up and down for a par. Better to favour the left side of the green and use the slope of the bank to push the ball back toward to green
The green slopes from right to left allowing for a challenging two-putt.

Callaway XR driver, and 3 wood, mixture of irons from Callaway Big Bertha, to Cleveland HB3, Tom Wishon Hybrid 3, Odyssey Tank putter.
