Legendary Ryder Cup golfer Colin Montgomerie has put his name to the
course due to open in October 2007. The layout of the course gives it
the potential to be one of the gems of the area. In total there are 6
par 5's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 3's so a balanced approach is needed. The
whole course is carved into a pine forest but has several island tees,
both over water and vast sand traps meaning that a precise tee shot is
essential. Water is also a major feature on the course with it dominating
on holes from 4 to 9. These see expansive lakes cutting into the sides
of the fairways with a formidable tee shot over a lake at the 7th facing
those playing off the back tees.

The 18th may well become a signature hole in years to come. The tee shot
requires a carry over waste land to hit the fairway. Your second will
require another carry over waste land to the second stage of the fairway.
Only then will the green be in sight but it is not that simple. Further
waste land guards the front of the green with enormous bunkers and water
hazards guarding either side. All overlooked by the impressive club house.
Precision really is the key when playing the Montgomerie Championship
Course. A 9 hole par 3 course is also due to open in October 2007 and
will supplement the teaching and academy to be established at the resort.
Although the longest hole on is only 109 yards many tee shots will need
some ability to carry hazards, from waste land to lakes!
