Hole 18 - Beithglass Hame - Par 3

” Named after the farmhouse which used to exist just behind the clubhouse car park. “

A great finishing hole, the 18th requires accuracy and length to find the green on this par 3. The only real trouble for the tee shot is the out of bounds through the green if length is excessive.

Tee shots not quite reaching the green will require a delicate chip or pitch. Grass mounds front and left and a bunker at the back edge protect the green. The real difficulty with this hole can be found on the green itself, which slopes quite steeply from left to right making it important to leave yourself with an uphill putt if possible. This green is a double green (shared with the 5th hole) and it is by far the largest putting surface on the course.

Pro’s Tip

A long par 3 but with a generous double green target could find you being left with a long putt.

Avoid going long on this particular hole.
