Afamosa Golf Resort

A’Famosa Golf Resort

There is a saying “there is something for everyone at A’Famosa".

 

Golfers, the 27-hole A’Famosa International Golf Course was crafted with great skill and vision by Australian golf course architect Ross C. Watson. The course flows with the undulating terrain, past mature palm trees, spectacular boulders and pristine waterways, an ensemble to provide the best of a natural selling for a nice round of golf.

 

o         Palm Nine - Measuring 3,215 metres from the blue markers, the Palm Nine is thus named due to the prolific presence of tall coconut trees which line the fairway perimeters.

Picturesque and challenging, this nine-hole tract is the par 5 fourth, which demands a spectacular water carry for the approach to a diagonally angled green site.

 

o         Rocky Nine - Named for the prolific presence of boulder outcrops which serve both aesthetic and panel functions, this 3,182 metres grouping of holes plays outwards from the clubhouse up to resorts boundary with the North-South Highway, then back to the Clubhouse. The signature fourth hole is a boulder-strewn par 5 which plays parallel to the highway on the left.

 

o         Crocodile Nine - The shortest of the trio at 3,154 metres, A’Famosa’s newest nine-hole loop plays towards the Water World Theme Park, which provides a stunning backdrop to the fourth green. The highlight of this spectacular nine is the hole from which it gets its monicker - the par 4 seventh, which demands one of the most unnerving approaches known to golf; over a narrow strait to a peninsula green site, built next to a crocodile pit.
