Royal Portrush Golf Club - 14th Hole
The signature hole par three 14th is the hole on the homeward stretch
that will linger longest in the memory. Worryingly but justifiably
called "Calamity Corner", the 14th hole measures 210 yards
off the Championship tee and looking toward the green you will immediately
know where the 14th got its name. It requires a long carry with
a long iron or wood (that must not go right!) over a deep ravine
in order to reach a green perched directly on a 100-foot precipice.
Slice the ball and you will be guaranteed a double bogey as the
ball succumbs to the call of gravity, bouncing and rolling on a
seemingly endless journey, down a steep slope toward the Valley
The name says it all - a hole for strength and courage. However
when you play it, you will most certainly remember it!
