Hole 1
Par 4
402 yards

The par-4 1st at the Congressional doglegs slightly to the left and at only 402 yards in length will be a target for players looking to make an early birdie. Only an iron is required from the tee, which will help avoid bunkers on the right side of the fairway. The green is one of the largest on the course and one of the flattest which will aid those looking to get off to aid those looking for a quick start.
