The No.2 course at Ribagolfe opened for play in 2004 and was designed by the European Golf Design Company in collaboration with former Walker and Ryder Cup player Michael King. Designed as a members’ course, Ribagolfe No.2 – like its brother course No.1 – is routed through stands of cork oak and it represents a fair challenge in pleasant surroundings.

The overall length of the No.2 course is 540 yards shorter than its sibling and fairways on this layout are more open, leading to large, reasonably contoured greens. Water comes into play at only a couple of holes; the short par four 6th, where a creek cuts across in front of the green, and the long par five 13th, where the same stream slices through the fairway into a small lake on the right side of the hole.

There’s a beautifully balanced set of par threes (measuring between 145 yards and 197 yards) on the No.2 course with the toughest, and longest, of the four short holes played early in the round at the 3rd. Trees partially block the route to the green on the right hand side of the fairway so golfers with a slight fade should do well on this hole.

A nice warm up for the first day of our tour. The facilities are a bit strange, it looks like the money ran out, so you have to drive about 3km from the clubhouse to the first tee.However, once there, the course is a good, fairly forgiving layout, with a good set of par 3s.

Courses are built in a national park so not allowed to have a clubhouse in the middle of the courses.
