2nd: The Head

146m

Having caught your breath following the climb to the second tee, prepare to have it taken away again by the stunning views of the Scottish coast and the Antrim Plateau and by the sight of Cairndhu’s signature hole. On the tee you are almost 100 metres above the Famous Antrim Coast Road and facing a shot from an elevated tee to a long narrow green that falls away sharply to the left to light rough and is bunkered on the front right-hand side. The club selection is vital and is totally dependent on the weather. Depending on the direction of the wind a player could hit anything from a lob wedge to a one iron. Having safely found the putting surface the only significant borrow is from the left edge to the centre of the green.

Pro’s Tip:

Have the courage of your convictions, especially into the wind – hit the ball better, not harder, and use the slope to the right of the green to gather the ball.
