AMELKIS Golf Club (18 Holes – Gary Player design)
Surrounded by ocean views and sand dunes, guests enjoy the natural beauty of Gary Player's Mogador Golf Course. Whether a pro playing a round or a young beginner taking lessons, perfect your game in this idyllic 9 or 18-hole course with equipment rentals
The course, too, is close to perfection, arguably one of the finest resort courses in the world. It is challenging, rewarding and demanding but fair. It is strategic rather than penal, as a resort course should be and as usual with Gary Player's creations.
AMELKIS Golf Club Big targets abound: wide fairways, expansive greens but equally large bunkers for those who stray. There's ample lateral and vertical movement to provide variety and it is all in a wooded setting with the sea as a backdrop. From where the tigers prowl the card reads 7,213 yards (6,558 metres) to a par of 72, but there are six sets of tees, three each for men and women, to cater for all levels of ability.
The condition and presentation is flawless. The tees resemble some greens we've seen recently; the bunkers are pristine, the greens true but slick and with just enough movement to demand your full attention. Imagination and sound course management will pay dividends and a sound short game and a hot putter will help, too. Patience is a virtue here: take your time with the shortest putt and, above all, be positive.
AMELKIS Golf Club Stand on the first tee and it will be obvious that a treat is in store. True to the accepted philosophy that a sound opening hole calls for simplicity of design with everything in view, this par four is a classic and a preamble to a course of lilting tempo that brings fun and challenge in equal measure. It is the perfect resort course.
