The River Ravensbourne, which accompanies you on your way to the first tee, marks the start of your round at Shortlands. The river continues along the left-hand side of the fairway of the first hole, concealed by the row of mature trees but is also out of bounds. So a straight, controlled, good length shot from the raised tee onto the fairway is the best way to start on this, the toughest hole on the course.
