The first hole, named The Burrows at Laytown & Bettystown is a 322-yard par 4. The ideal line off the tee is right centre of this undulating fairway. Drivable by the longer hitter with a favourable wind but a miss left, right or long of this green can come at a heavy price. Accuracy is the key to the approach shot. The front left of the green is protected by a pot bunker.
