Hole 17 - Half Moon, Par 4, 424 yards/388 metres
Ian Woosnam: It has become a very demanding tee shot right to left since a new tee was put in 40 yards back The wind sometimes plays off the left. If the wind blows from the right it's an easier hole. If you bail out right hand side where there are three new trees you can face a very tricky second shot. The perfect place is to go down the left side of the fairway but it needs courage. The easier shot is to hit three wood or two iron off the tee but then that will leave a five iron into the green, and the longer the club the harder the shot. The more aggressive you get on this hole the easier it can be, although danger lurks. The green slopes severely from right to left towards the Liffey with a little mound just short of the green.
