Royal Dublin Golf Course Review
Royal Dublin was designed by Harry Colt. The 4th, a par 4 measuring 408 yards, features an old stone-built wall on the left that extends to run round the back of the green. It gives this hole a real links feel. Plenty of bunkers to be avoided too.
The 8th measures 410 yards - stand on the tee and aim at the only bunker you can see. A tiny green is surrounded by hillocks and thick rough.
The 12th is a glorious, 201-yard par 3 - two bunkers guard the right side of the putting surface, while another bites into the left side. Aim at the tree behind the green, but don't hit the ball over the surface.
The 17th, running to 444 yards, is a real challenge, depending on the wind direction. It’s out of bounds on the right, but the perfect line is take your drive over the bunker on the right side of the fairway. Get it slightly wrong and you are hitting three off the tee. This is another green protected by mounds and hillocks as well as bunkers.
The closing hole is a heart-in-the-mouth par 4 measuring 485 yards from the championship tees. It is a dogleg, with water and out of bounds on the right and a lake and gorse bushes on the left. A fantastic closing hole.
