Our favourite course on our tour of the Antipodes without a shadow of doubt. A picture of CK had been on my wall for probably 8 years, as a ‘bucket list’ course to play, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Whilst not being quite as dramatic as the professionally taken photographs we were enthralled by our 3 days & nights there & CK vastly exceeded our expectations. We were however very lucky with the weather because on a very windy day I guess it could be quite unplayable. The spectacular ocean views start on hole number 4 and continue until the 16th, with the exception of 8 & 9 which are excellent inland holes. The views all around the course are just mind blowing. As is well written about, the back nine is played along 5 separate fingers of land jutting out into the ocean. It was just brilliant, such a dramatic, stunning course & a real privilege to get to visit. One day we hope to return, with our fingers firmly crossed that the wind is kind once again.
Oh boy! One of the courses I had dreamed of playing ever since I started being interested in the game was Cape K. Thanks to Patrick, I even got the full VIP treatment. And I am going to sum it up quickly... It's one of the most fun rounds I have ever had. The layout is of course brilliant and the views are second to none. It is quite unique to play a hole with 100 meters drop on each side of the fairway and behind the green. Facilities, like at the sister's course Kauri Cliffs, are world class too! And on a side note, I got to take a few very nice drone shots!
