The Saucer

Par 5 | 514 YDS

The first hole at Abbeyleix Golf Club is a sweeping left to right par 5. A long hole that is reachable in two for the big hitters, known as the saucer because the green sits down surrounded on all sides by slopes. Favour the left side of the fairway with your drive and approach. A large bail out area to the left of the green will keep you in play but your pitching will have to be sharp coming from above the green to stick it close.
