The first hole at Leonay gives a good impression of what to expect in the round of golf to follow. Named after Life Member and club legend Ray Dukes, the hole’s slight dog-leg right presents the first of many decisions to be made during the day. An accurate drive taking on the corner will leave a short pitch to the green however the heavily tree-lined fairway leaves little room for error leading to many players laying up to the corner for a short iron approach shot.
A wide green with little depth featuring two tiers requires an accurate approach shot with any ball going beyond the green in danger of entering the hazard from which a shot will be difficult to play.
