Hole Length (Yards) Par Index Description
1 554 5 6 There are no hidden difficulties on the double dog leg par 5. Played as a three shotter the lay-up position is to the left of the green and the mound on the far right. For the better player the second shot must carry the mound to reach the green.
2 408 4 8 The best strategy for this hole is to play left of the fairway to take the bunker and steep slope on the right of the green out of the line of the second shot as far as possible.
3 180 3 18 The elevated tee on this hole shows clearly what needs to be done. Done go left, right or over!
4 426 4 4 Although the bigger hitters may want to take on the bunkers and the mound on the left, the best line is to favour the right hand side of the fairway. Approach is to an elevated green with two protecting bunkers, front left and middle right.
5 191 3 16 This is a relatively straight forward hole to and undulating green, the dangers being the gorse hedge on the left and a deep bunker front right.
6 521 5 10 Intriguing risk reward hole with sharp dogleg left. 3 shot strategy aim 2nd towards fairway bunker on the right. 2 shot strategy not really advised as approach to narrow long green.
7 408 4 2 The best line of attack here is to the left part of the fairway which requires flirting with a line of gorse bushes and a lateral drain. The second shot uphill to a two tiered green requires good club selection.
8 386 4 12 The tee position here gives 360 degree views of the magnificent surrounding countryside of the three Counties. There is another plateau green which falls away on all sides where club selection is crucial.
9 401 4 14 Wind direction will dictate the line of the tee shot here, but the deep hell bunker on the left should be avoided at all costs. Green side bunkering is well short of the green and will deceive players who do not study their yardage.

10 404 4 3 Very good hole reguirign an accurate tee shot between the tall trees and an out-of-bounds at the landing area. Approach shot over a deep valley onto a plateau green which steeply slopes away on all sides.
11 178 3 17 A deep valley comes into play in this hole. The ground slopes away steeply to the left. The tee shot should favour the right onto this undulating green.
12 388 4 9 Wonderful tee shot from an elevated position where one of the lakes comes very much into play, as well as a nest of bunkers on the left hand side. Longer drives rewarded by giving a better angle for the approach shot to a difficult green.
13 555 5 13 Unusual and interesting Par 5 where water is a constant threat. The hole doglegs to the right and water threatens on the second and third shot. Chewing off some of the dog leg risks a threatening Lisheen River.
14 433 4 11 While this hole from appearances does not present any undue difficulties, a long straight drive is required and an errant one will be punished for the second shot. The two tier green nestles naturally into a hill and is protected by two deep bunkers.
15 559 5 5 Lisheen river criss crosing this hole means there are many strategies to success or failure. Safest option play short of each criss cross for 3 shots to the green.
16 185 3 15 Many would regard this as the signature hole. The contoured green is set into a steep hill with the large lake both front and right. The bale-out area can be stymied by two large hawthorn bushes. Regardless of result you will remember this hole.
17 433 4 1 This is a long hole and requires considerable finesse. The fairway is sloped to the left therefore the tee shot should favour the right. The green is guarded by a narrow entrance, and this is deceptive due to a valley short of the green.
18 394 4 7 This dogleg right and uphill, with the clubhouse in the background, fitting climax to the round. The green is severely tiered and deceptively long where two putts will always be accepted with gratitude.
