Memorable Hole Make or Break
1st (Par 4). The first hole of more than 400 years must be, without doubt, the most spectacular yet one of the most daunting holes in the game of golf. Standing on the tee you have the wild, untamed Irish sea on your left and the rolling hills of Kintyre on your right. Unfortunately to put you tee shot on the fairway you have to manoeveur your ball over the sea or, if the tide's out, you have the sandy beach to contend with. 10th (Par 5). Normally you would expect to reach most par 5s in a drive, fairway wood then a relatively short iron, but not this one. With the wind almost always in your face, you can expect to play at least a 4 or 5 iron for you approach shot.
   
Summary  
Quite simply one of the best golf courses.
