Working your way back up the nearby sand dune to this enclosed tee, the golfer faces one of the most stunning views of the golf course.
Looking back across the recently completed sixth hole, the sparkling waters of Murtnaghurt Lagoon and onto the clubhouse it could be quite easy to become transfixed in the surrounding scenery. But the seventh hole requires much greater respect. This magnificently shaped green represents all the wonderful aspects of Links golf. To the left of the hole a small dune sits with two bunkers. On the right hand side of the dune a large grassed area feeds all balls striking its vicinity onto the green. At the front of the green a large tightly cut apron allows the golfer to bounce their ball onto the firm putting surface. The right hand side of the green is protected by many bunkers, including a large deep bunker that protects the back of the green from any shots the slightest bit over clubbed. The first truly great par three on the course.
TIP: If the pin is in the middle or to the right hand side of the green, aim at the green side traps to the left and work the ball back to the centre of the green. The natural lie of the land will bounce the ball towards the pin. If the pin is in the left bowl, good luck!
