Hole 12 – Slieve Gullion

Par: 5   Stroke Index: 8
Blue: 505m      White: 474m   Green: 465m   Red: 408m

As one progresses down this fairway, Slieve Gullion, to the west of the Cooley Mountains, can be seen in the distance. The mountain features prominently in stories from Irish mythology about legendary warriors Fionn MacCumhaill and Cúchullain.

Leslie’s Tip: This par five doglegs from right to left with a water hazard crossing the fairway at 240 yards from the medal tee. A narrow second shot awaits with hazards left, right and long, so laying up just right of the fairway bunker is always a good option in order to hit the two tier green.
