El Chaparral Golf Course Guide

By: Grahame Simpson

El Chaparral Golf Course is a beautiful course with a great layout that challenges all golfers.

El Chaparral Golf Course front 9 holes.

Hole 1: You drive over a barranca (dry ravine) to middle to right of the fairway. The hole is all uphill with slopes either side of the green however the rough is long and the ball will not always roll down. The green has a couple of levels.

Hole 2: This is a par 3 where again you drive over a long barranca and the green has two bunkers protecting it.

Hole 3: This is an interesting hole where big hitters can play over a mound on the left to give a chance of reaching in two, whereas the safe play is middle to left. There is a river about 100 meters before the green. The green is long and narrow and slopes away to the left.

Hole 4: A slightly uphill par 3 which always needs a club more than its distance.

Hole 5: A hole that is straight but due to trees and the undulations of the fairway it seems to meander. The green is small and long is out of bounds. Short and you will roll down a slope.

Hole 6: A par 5 where a drive down the middle is where you want to be. The green is at the bottom of a slope and is a blind shot. There is heavy rough all down the right and a dry river and gully to the left.

Hole7: Another Par 5 which can be reached in two. However the position is down the middle then over a corner of trees and bunkers to cut the dogleg right and a chance for a birdie. Or safely play the second shot straight and chip up hill onto the green in three.

Hole 8: A lovely hole that doglegs to the right. From the back tees it is hard to cut the corner as trees are all down the right. Don't drive to big otherwise you will go past the fairway and into the trees and shrubs on the other side. The green has a slope running down to it on the left and falls away on the right.

Hole 9: Straight down the middle for this hole. There are a couple of dips in the fairway and the green is protected by bunkers.
