Pro Tip:
No better time than now to pump a drive down the middle. Surely someone will see it! The approach is deceiving with most players coming up short. Take an extra club to avoid a tricky pitch from below the putting surface.

Pro Tip:
Think back to the third hole and then add a club for your shot to this well defended green. Going for the middle is the best advice.

Pro Tip:
A textbook Par 4 that demands a long and accurate tee shot towards the centre of the fairway. The second shot should be placed to the right side.

Pro Tip:
A favourite of many, this signature Par 3 will ask questions of even the most adept golfer. Take plenty of ammo and make a confident swing! It is an horrendously fast putt from above the hole!

Pro Tip:
Like the roads of Connemara, this Par 5 offers some breathtaking views. However, forget to stay left and you will find trouble. If laying up, stay clear of the traps. If attacking, a well placed shot above the bunkers leaves a flat pitch to the green.

Pro Tip:
Flanked on either side by mounding, the tee shot demands accuracy and length. approach shots finishing short are ten-a-penny here, so take an extra club to get it up on top. There is more room to the left than is visible.

Pro Tip:
Accuracy above all for this testing tee shot. The approach should be played to the right side of the green with precautions taken to avoid the burn running across the entrance.

Pro Tip:
This penultimate Par 5 is reachable in two, but with power and accuracy. If you are going to lay up, leave yourself a full swing, but don’t forget that the rise in elevation does make your pitch play longer than usual.

Pro Tip:

A great finishing Par 5 that will prove to be three shots for most. Calculate your second and decide what to do accordingly. Take an extra club for your approach, remembering there’s no bunker at the back. A fast putt downhill!
