Are These the Most Birdied Opening Holes in the UK

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 24 Jul 2020 | Comments


The opening hole to a round often critically sets the tone of the day. However, establishing a positive start can be a challenge, particularly at these courses, but there are some layouts that introduce golfers in a more relaxed fashion, offering a short par 5 or relatively modest par 4 to begin with.

We have studied the Golfshake Score Tracker to help identify some of the easiest 1st holes in the UK, picking out the most birdied in 2020, delving into rounds tracked since the game returned post-lockdown. Each of these featured holes has seen at least 50 scores recorded to qualify them, with a comparatively high birdie percentage enjoyed by the Golfshake Community.

Properly warming up is vital to encourage a good start, in addition to shaking off those pre-round nerves, but sometimes, having that welcoming opener is the best way to get your round off and running in a strong manner.

Let us know if you have played any of these holes, but more importantly, what are the 1st holes you have experienced that were easier, the ones that you birdied, setting off your round in the right way?
