Edgbaston: Course open, trolleys and trikes permitted but no buggies today. Please stick to fairways, extremely wet in areas.
The stroke index one hole is a fairly long uphill four. A good drive is a prerequisite and the second must carry two bunkers set into a steep bank to a small green protected by a swale at the front and out of bounds only a few yards away to the left.
Like most stroke one holes, only two good shots will do here. A bogey five is not too disappointing but the unwary can easily do worse.
