Castle Stuart Golf Links – Hole 12 – Par 5 – 599 Yards

 Mon, 27-Jun-2016

The addition of a new tee box has extended the hole by close to 60 yards as well as making the hole a sharp dogleg to the right. If you have the nerve and a long, high cut, bravehearts can go for the green in two. Others may decide that laying up isn’t such a bad option. Long-hitters take note: first, the posts marking the water hazard to the left of the green are only just off the green itself; second, the fairway plateau alongside the right of the green requires shaping a right-to-left shot; third, the steep contour separating the rightside plateau from the green can yield a bad bounce; and fourth, there’s ample fronting to the green above the bunker. Have fun.
