An impressive 22 water hazards with large waterfalls are scattered around the course to create a varied round, whilst the greens are heavily protected with white sand bunkers. The Abama golf course presents its players with many hazards, all strategically placed in order to hinder your scorecard. Varied terrain on this course also demands concentration from all players.
From the first tee it is made evident that the designers of this course had an aim to incorporate the course’s natural topography in their plans, and they were undoubtedly successful in doing so. As Thomas did this, players will find themselves faced with an exciting course. There is a route of holes winding round uneven ground, with the lowest point at 78 metres above sea-level, and hole 5 features the highest hole on the course at 315 metres above sea level. Near enough every hole on this course offers stunning panoramic views of the coast, and players will find themselves unable to resist taking a break to admire the beautiful vista.
Look out for the signature par-5 10th, rising 480 feet above sea level. The hole features a dog leg to the left, lined by the intimidating lakes. Players are kept on their toes with this hole, due to the dramatic elevation changes and the multiple hazards included on this course. As the elevation changes downhill, players are forced to overcome waterfalls on the left of the green, and bunkers on the right. This is one of the most memorable holes you will ever play
