Pessac Golf Course

This is the course we'll be playing a week today on the first morning of the 2009 Three Peaks Challenge.

We're opening with a fourball and the course is set among the vineyards, yet with a staggering 250 acres of pine woods as well.

At 6056 metres it's not particularly long but there are plenty of water hazards to gobble up those wayward Titleists.

The opening shots of the competition will be full blooded as the first is a tempting par five of just 481m from the back.  A drive, long iron and two putts would certainly set down a marker for the week.

It's important to get off to a good start and with just four rounds this year Chris and I will be looking to go into day two with a resounding victory under our belts.

Statto says: Graham hasn't lost an opening match since 2001 and I don't expect him to do so here, Chris & Graham to win 4/3.
