HOLE NO. 1: par 4, 396 yards
Plays as hole No. 2 for club members. Possibly the hardest hole on the course, requiring a long drive over a fairway bunker and a second shot that avoids a steep greenside bunker on the right. "You've got to keep it left," Kellie Stenzel said. |(Credit: Sebonack Golf Club)
