Designed by South African Nick Price and opened in 2011 The Grand Coral is a worthy addition to the top golf courses in this area.
The course has been carefully constructed to blend in with the surroundings. I’ve played here several times and whilst it’s not the best course in the area it is in my opinion a great course to get your eye in so to speak. Due to the fact that there are many wider than average fairways with good landing areas and run off areas around the greens. Also, the greens are relatively flat here. You can get a score around here and build your confidence for playing a more difficult course during your vacation.
What I like about this course is that the obstacles are right in front of you, there are no blind holes. That said, there are some very challenging holes and some thought and care is needed to negotiate your way to that good score.
The turf here is Paspalum which has a beautiful emerald green colour, and really holds up well in this climate.
You’ve got 8 lakes and 75 bunkers to avoid here, let’s hope it’s not a windy day.
There’s a regular drinks and snacks cart that comes around and for $27.00 an all-inclusive food and drinks option can be bought which is really good value if like me you like to partake in a beer or two on your way round. Hmmm, maybe that’s why I’ve never birdied the 18th.
Great course, and friendly staff at reasonable prices. Check your hotel to see if they have any deals with the golf club.
