Royal Portrush Golf Club - 17th Hole

The 17th is a long par five and provides ample opportunity for mistakes. From the tee, you are faced with a deep bunker cut out of the hill which easily catches the sliced drive, while your second shot, which is played to a narrowing fairway, must be accurate to avoid bunkers to the left and right.
