The opening hole of the Spruce nine eases you into the beauty and difficulty of the Innisfail Golf Club. A straight forward tee shot finds the only real trouble coming in the form of the trees down the left hand side, or for the extremely long hitter – the creek that runs across the fairway. The approach shot is where the fun begins. Spruce #1 marks the first of four multi-tiered greens on this side, making club selection very important. Mounds on the left hand side will kick balls away from the flag and a bunker on the right will consume any shots that veer offline. A tough two putt is all that greets you when you reach the green – making it a score well here.
