Review:

This is the 2nd time that I have played this course and whilst there are higher ranked courses in the vicinity (Maspalomas and Anfi) this course is unique as it built in the mountains with the majority of the holes running along gorge edges. The views are stunning and worth an Albatross rating alone. The course is quite short, with easy reachable Par 5’s and probably slightly too many Par 3’s to rank it higher. Also, if you haven’t played it before some of the holes will catch you out. They have shortened the 12th from Par 4 to Par 3 as golfers were advising that it was too hard. The new par 3 is simply too short and more needs to be done on this hole. The finish has also been changed over the last 4 holes in recent years, again to make it easier. Salobre need to advise Garmin as the device still is programmed to the old course route. This is a very enjoyable, if quirky test of golf with some stunning views. My stand out holes are the 3rd, 5th (tee off 200 yards over a ravine), and 11th. Slick greens to boot.
