Review:

Played this twice at the end of February 2012 – please note that earlier reviews were posted prior to the hole numbers being completely changed when the new clubhouse and hotel were completed. An enjoyable course which at 47 euros if you are staying at the Onyria hotel represents good value. The course is a little shorter than some so playing off the white tees is a good idea for single handicappers and makes holes 5,6,10,12 and 14(the ravine hole) very interesting. The 5th is an interesting par 3 of 170yards over a lake to an elevated green surrounded by bunkers, whilst the par5 6th requires a well struck drive from the white tee over the lake to a fairway that turns left then right towards the green. The par 5 10th hole is a potential card wrecker as the drive & 2nd shots have to avoid lakes right and left whilst the 3rd shot requires precision with a short iron and anything pulled left or too strong will also find the water. The course doesn’t now have the strongest finish because of the re-organised layout but this is a pleasant test with sufficient variety and although undulating buggies are not essential. Greens had been hollow tined and sanded a week or so before we played so were not brilliant but were acceptable. TB h/cap 8.
