Crossword Genius

Opening sounds complete (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hole

'opening' is the definition.
(I know that opening can be written as hole)

'sounds complete' is the wordplay.
'sounds' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'complete' becomes 'whole' (similar in meaning).
'whole' sounds like 'HOLE'.

(Other definitions for hole that I've seen before include "depression" , "Hollow, cavity" , "This in one is a golfer's dream!" , "Nasty place" , "Aperture; flaw in a plan" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
