El Plantio Golf Course Review

The El Plantio golf course consists of six very good holes, six average holes and six holes that are perhaps a little weak.However, this actually makes the course ideal for all standards of golfer and offers a little for everyone.

The course opens with a very demanding tee shot on a long par 4 hole with out of bounds to the right of a narrow fairway and a water hazard to the front left of the green. The 3rd green requires the second shot over water to a narrow, Mckenzie style green.
The uphill par 4 13th hole was altered to amend the building of the nearby apartment complex and now consists of a superb water feature which is easily within reach of the tee shot necessitating the accurate use of an iron off the tee.

The course ends with a long par 3 hole but you only get to play this hole after you have plotted your way down the narrow 17th hole playing the second shot over water.

The greens themselves are generally large but strategically located pins make it imperative the approach shots and putting are carried out with care and accuracy. It is important on approaching the greens to take note of the pin positions, as a pin located at the back of the green can add two clubs to your selection otherwise you will come up short and be left with a long put over undulating greens. What is noticeable is the lack of bunkers compared to most of the courses in the area, but the few they do have are strategically positioned to protect the greens.
Both the greens and fairways are generally kept in fantastic condition with the first nine holes less difficult being without water hazards but the last nine have two lakes which will need to be avoided if a good score is to be achieved. Accurate driving from the tees and on the fairways is particularly important on the back nine as a wayward shot will find a watery grave.
The varied difficulty of each hole, strategically placed bunkers and green pins with deceivingly large greens make El Plantio golf course a pleasurable round of golf for all levels of golfer although some will find it less challenging than others.

El Plantio golf course is 23 Miles - 30 Minutes from the golf accommodation.
