How to Play Hole 2 with PGA Pro Ciaran Hegarty

2nd Hole – Par 5 – 591 Yards

The 2nd Hole in Castleknock Golf Club is a strong Par 5 which doglegs to the Left, with out of bounds left off the tee on the tee and a number of bunkers on your lay-up and approach to the green.

The Tee Shot

The tee shot is a demanding shot with out of bounds all down the left and a large tree in the middle of the fairway. For the bigger more aggressive hitter the line is between the tree and the out of bounds, while for more sensible people a shot straight at the tree is a good line.

The Second Shot

From the top of the hill for you second shot, you have two choice, get it as close to the green as possible but risk having a undulating lie below the level of the green, or lay up at the 100 yard marker where there is a flat spot on the fairway and be able to position yourself for you third shot.

The Third Shot

From the 100 yard marker you have a great view of the green. Club choice going into this large green is important as the green is 42 yards long. It is also important as finding the right tier on the green will making sure you have a reasonable chance at birdie.

 This a great Hole that can set you up for a great day or wreck your scorecard.
