Golf course links residents with nature

The attractive Sardinia Bay Golf Club nine-hole layout provides an interesting challenge for golfers of all levels.

The layout is situated on the Sardinia Bay Golf & Wildlife Estate, a few kilometres from the Indian Ocean, and has a distinct links feel about it.

Nestled alongside the estate housing, the course is an attractive feature without being intrusive to the residents.

Eighteen tee boxes create enough variety to test most golfers over the course par of 66. Each nine has a par-five, four par-fours and four par-threes.

Although the par-four holes are relatively short, there are enough challenges thrown in to hold the attention of golfers.

The entry-level player will be pleased to know that there are no bunkers on the course, but several well-placed water features ensure that accuracy is a prerequisite.

The construction of a number of new tee boxes alter the personality of some of the par-fours, providing the golfer with a completely new challenge on several holes on the back nine.

The wildlife on the estate adds to the natural environment of the course as it winds through the dunes and bushy surrounds of the area.

The golf club is affiliated to the Eastern Province Golf Union and the South African Golf Association.
