A Hole-by-Hole Look at Oakmont
Nestled just northeast of Pittsburgh, Oakmont Country Club will be a stern test of golf as it hosts the 2007 U.S. Open. Take a close look at each hole on the course.
No. 1 482 yards, par 4
The first hole on the course signals that this is not going to be a leisurely walk in the park. A long par 4, players will need to avoid fairway bunkers on the left and right, and then hit a mid-iron to a green that slopes hard from front to back. If the tee shot is less than 290 yards, the approach will be blind. Welcome to Oakmont. See a photo of the hole
