Lotus 1 is a medium length par 5 played slightly downhill from the tees, then over a gentle valley guarded by two fairway bunkers and a pond located on the right hand side of the rough, followed by an uphill approach to the green. A new fairway bunker on the left side of the fairway was added on the 2nd shot landing area. The putting green was slightly shifted angled more to the left with two green side bunkers flanking both sides of the green.
Strategy of Play:
Off the Tees – Aim over the left side of the left bunker to have a clear view of the green as an aggressive approach. Long hitters may opt to reach the green in 2. For a more conservative play, aim short of the right hand side bunker and lay-up with a fairway wood or a long iron on your second shot for an easy third approach shot to the green.
A birdie chance if you keep the ball away from the tree lines on both sides of the fairway.
