Hole 12

Pro Guide Hole 12 : BARASSIE : Par 4 : 439 Yards

Long - and straight - the twelfth is a monster requiring length and accuracy to hit a three-club, two tiered green. There’s out of bounds and a menancing bunker to the left off the tee. The right now has three bunkers in a row set up to catch anything going even slightly awry from the driver.

In addition a new back tee has been added increasing the length by 80 yards to that of a Par Five.

If the drive is straight and long the second shot will still require a good hit with long iron or more likely wood and then there’s the danger of whins and gorse on the left and bunkers on the right. The green is long and narrow and runs of to the front right. The two tiered green can leave you with arguably the longest putt of the day - bad enough if looking for par, worse if its trying to save a bogey. Rated by many as the best hole on the course.
