The fairway gets narrower the closer you get to the green. There is a large burren that runs up the left side, starting at 250 yards and running to 320.
There is 1 fairway bunker at 270 yards that makes going for the green very difficult. A decision must be made whether to go for the green or layup.
The green is made smaller by a large fall off on the left side. There is a slope short right that will feed the ball into the heart of the green.
The world-famous golf course in Rosses Point offers an excellent challenge. The traditional links layout, designed by Harry Colt, utilises the natural contours of the dune-covered landscape rather than moving large amounts of earth during its design.
