Ardglass Golf Course Review
Par 70, 6268 yards, links
The 2nd hole is a 167-yard par 3 that will take your breath away. From the tee, you play to a green located at the other side of a huge gorge where the waves crash in hundreds of feet below.
The 7th is another par 3, this time measuring 215 yards - it seems straightforward enough, but there will usually be a strong crosswind. An old cottage lies to the right of the green, behind which there is a wall.
The 9th is a par 5. It is 527 yards and is one of the more straightforward holes on the course, providing you put your approach on the right part of the green.
The 15th is a 491-yard, par 5, that is short by today's standards, but the fairway is narrow and features a series of bunkers running up the right-hand side.
The 16th is a 422-yard, par 4, where the outstanding feature, once again, is a series of bunkers, two lying about 50 yards short of the green, two more cutting into the front.
The 18th hole has a three-tiered tee. From the back, the hole measures just 345 yards, but out of bounds lurks on the left, while the fairway slopes left to right towards the rough. A great, scenic closing hole.
