The Reef Club Golf Course

The course at the Reef Club is roughly 7,000 yards long, and the well kempt fairways might make your ball run a little further than you think. Its greens are large and fast, and will be conducive to golfers with a good short game. The course is operated in a fairly laid-back fashion, and you needn't feel rushed to finish your round by any particular time. You'll still need to call ahead to reserve a tee time though.

Course Description

The golf course is open from 10am to 6pm daily.

This golf course has made itself an established place to play some holes, having been founded in 2000. The greens, difficulty of the holes, and practice areas reflect the design of Robert Trent Jones Jr., the lead architect of the course. It has earned a course rating of 72.3, and its 18 holes measure a total distance of 6515 yards. Also note that they've got a golf professional, Zack Fidler, on-site who can help newbies practice their swing or give advanced instruction for seasoned golfers.

The quickness of the fairways and greens, coupled with the thick patches of natural foliage all around the course will make you lose a few more balls than you might normally, but the beauty of the course and the stunning oceans vistas it offers will keep you from cursing too much even when your score isn't as low as you'd like. The course also features 11 lakes which are spread throughout, along with a bunch of sand traps.
