Course Breakdown

Think mini golf on steroids and you wouldn’t be too far from the concept at this very unique Gary Player Design course. I’ve said before this course mimics the legends character and this I’m still sure of.

The course on first appearance is a beast, especially in the final 5 holes. However, the course doesn’t really play anywhere near its potential length and offers up an opportunity even for the shorter knockers. The features and hazards are somewhat of a bold statement here and there are so many various layout options. I’m still after two years left a little undecided if its a course built by a genius or built by a mad man. Either way it looks incredible and no doubt it will provide a superb week of top class tournament golf.

The Gary Player Design Course is a par 72, measuring 7,642 yards from its gold tee’s, it has large undulating greens (On some holes they even have 2 separate greens to create variety) huge and very unique bunkering.

The layout works it was through large landforms, various features and on several holes. It’s 2 large lakes will certainly add to the drama (look out for the 5th an island par 3 and the 17th unique beyond belief). Plus there’s those final 5 holes I mentioned, 14th a 550yd par 4, 15th 631yd par 5, 16th 273yd par 3, 17th 414yd par 4, 18th 624yd par 5.

Key Stats.

Fairways Hit – there are a few really though tee shots on this course and throughout the round playing from the short stuff is gong to be crucial for scoring and birdie avoidance.

Scrambling – although there are plenty of places you simply cant hit the ball there is an option here to miss it in the right place around and short of the greens and still give yourself a good chance of saving par. Previous good performances here in general have displayed good scrambling stats and I expect this trend to continue.

Lastly and most importantly stat Bucket Load of Luck and Grit!!! The players on any given day are going to love or hate this course, play well, maybe get a good few breaks and it looks less intimidating and suits the players eye. A couple of bad breaks or an awful piece of luck and I’m sure we will here more about players opinions a on this unique layout.
