Royal Portrush Golf Club - 2nd Hole

The second hole is par 5 which tempts big-hitters who have found the narrow fairway to go for the green in two. The green is certainly reachable (at 490 yards) but make sure you hit your second straight, otherwise the deep gorse on either side fo the green (which is hidden from view from the fairway) will swallow up offline shots. Just to add to the fun, if your second shot isn't long enough, two bunkers in the middle of the fairway at 60 yards from the green will likely turn this hole into a bogey six!
