The 1st  at Machrie is a great hole beside the sea. It is the “signature” hole of the course & can easily ruin a good score - before you have reached the second tee! There is Out of Bounds ( OB ) on both sides of the fairway - running the entire length of the hole - you have to hit a straight one from the tee or reload! Watch out you don't hit a passing car on the road. Once you have hit your tee shot you will face an enticing pitch onto the green. You can feed the ball in from the left, but don't be long & look out for the gorse on the right. Once on the green 3 putts can easily be taken, especially if the pin location is on the left slope. All in all a tough start, but a joy to play.
