Paul plays the 15th. He’s not been here before but relishes the challenge of this tough par 4. The Atlantic Ocean to the left and the fairway and green surrounded by enormous sand dunes. The wind is swirling. Can Paul get his par?
There are few courses that can boast such a fine collection of unique and great golf holes, Waterville is one of them.

Waterville is on a promontory surrounded by the sea with views of the Macgillycuddy Reek’s mountain range.
Chris plays the dramatic par 5, 18th. From the raised tee you can see the Atlantic and the beach to the right. Add crashing waves and wild red hares racing in and out of the dunes and this is truly a magical experience. Can Chris end his round in style in front of the clubhouse?

Royal County Down is located in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings in the Murlough Nature Reserve.

The narrowest ribbons of fairways thread their way through as impressive a set of sand dunes as could be imagined.
Chris plays another course from every golfer’s bucket list. Paul’s chosen the 4th. A tough par 3. The wind blowing in from the left off the Irish Sea makes it a tough tee shot. The green, some 2100 years away, is well guarded by bunkers too. Good luck Chris!
