The Golf Course
The club embarked on a major exercise in 2009 which entails a complete redesign and rebuilding of this brand new 18 holes course which was opened for play in April, 2012. Talented Australian course architect Ted Parslow, has incorporated interesting aspects of the landscape for a course that is set to be exciting as well as enchanting. The greens are carpeted with Bermuda Tifdwarf, while the tee boxes and fairways are planted with Hybrid Zoysia. The feature of this crown jewel is its numerous “trade-mark” high lipped bunkers and challenging greens with average speed of 10.5’ on the stimp meter. The 18-hole championship golf course is known to be among the most challenging in the country, as it tests the mind, skill and dexterity of any player.
The unique two tier drink hut which is strategically located in the heart of the course offers breathtaking views of the course and the surrounding wetlands. The new course is complemented by a Mediterranean styled clubhouse adjoining the recreational facilities section, which comprises an Infiniti, Jacuzzi and wading pools, mini gymnasium, tennis court and sauna. The R5ve Café offers a panoramic and breathtaking view of the course while diners enjoy a delectable selection of local and western cuisines.
