The design at Termas de Rio Hondo Golf Club takes “flexibility” to a new dimension in championship golf course setup. Two holes – No. 6 and No. 9 – can be played either as a par 4 or par 5, while No. 15 provides the option to be a par 3 or par 4, allowing the golf course to be set up differently every day. The course can play from 5,137 to 7,510 yards, and as a par 72 or 73. The “ribbon tees” are merely extensions of the fairway and make the course playable for any and all golfers.

Fabulous

Just outside of Naples, Florida, Kensington Golf and Country Club offers a private golf retreat designed around a 20-acre natural preserve at the heart of this residential community. Every hole at Kensington will enhance the environmental aspects of the property. The 6,879-yard venue feels like a spacious core golf layout even while it routes in and out of the residential community. Native flora and fauna increase the natural aspect of this course whose exacting members demanded the best.

Fabulous

Santiburi Golf Club offers risk-reward options on most holes. Holes 2, 3 and 4, for example, play alongside an enormous lake with a curving and complex shoreline designed for its strategic value. The front nine also plays up and down through the low hills of Bang Bor. The back nine sweeps through a steep valley and finishes strongly beside a chain of three lakes. Sand and grass bunkers, trees, ample water, and sloping lies provide an abundance of golf challenges.

reviewed Onyria Palmares Golf Resort
Fabulous

Palmares plays through three distinctive settings, and the separate, returning nine-hole loops can be combined into several equally-challenging 18-hole layouts. The Lagos (Lakes) Nine begins in parkland and presents two lakes for players to negotiate before the golf holes transition into open dunesland on their way back to a forested setting on the final hole. The Alvor (Trees) Nine navigates through mature pines and many holes climb hillsides or descend through intimate valleys. The Praia (Beach) Nine is the most linkslike of the three, with four holes bracketed by beach and a rail line—some of the only holes in the Algarve playing across natural seaside dunes. Overall, the course mixes views of the glowing white town of Alvor, the Lagos cliffs and Bay, and the dramatic Atlantic coastline. It presents optical puzzles, occasional blind shots, well- crafted hazards (such as pot bunkers) that dictate strategy, and plenty of tightly-mown collection areas calling for short-game wizardry. Wind is a factor and—as in the British tradition— many holes encourage play along the ground

reviewed Cabo Real Golf Club
Fabulous

Every hole offers a view of the Sea of Cortez. The desert sun produces an intensity of light and shadow that sometimes distorts perception and creates a mirage effect. The first six holes at Cabo Real climb steadily through Sonoran desert topography at the foot of rugged mountain peaks. Free-form bunkers and small, elevated greens combine with fairways that play along ridge tops to provide an expansive feel. Cabo Real's back nine is gentler, with wide fairways running down to the sea at the fourteenth hole.

Fabulous

Bjaavann Golfklubb is a rare inland course set along a fjord that is an extension of the North Sea. The gently rolling terrain is interspersed with natural springs, rock outcroppings, a rock island, a meandering stream, and mature stands of birch and pine. The good people of Bjaavann Golfklubb provided us with a wonderful canvas on which to create golf art. The extraordinary site embodies the many beautiful characteristics that Norway is blessed with.

reviewed Chambers Bay Golf Course
Fabulous

Much like the beloved links courses of Scotland and Ireland, Chambers Bay allows for creative shot making—particularly along the ground. Many holes invite players to choose among various routes from tee to green. Risk/reward opportunities abound, though wide fairways welcome all golfers to swing away. You can play more options at Chambers Bay than at the Chicago Futures Market.

The heart and soul of the Jones’ design at Hogs Head are captured in the five par 3s, naturally spectacular and diverse as they defend par with the river, the cliffs, the wind and the sea. The balance of the golf course is a supporting cast of classic characters that includes a Biarritz green, as well as other nuances that rekindle the spirit of golf architecture’s grand masters.
