Golf Park Puntiro
Golf Park Puntiró has been designed according to the topography of the land, without alterations in the field. The natural vegetation composed of pines, wild olive trees, carob-trees and bushes have been accordingly taken care of in order to provide the player with the natural environment of the island.
The difficulty of the course is average, though it can reach high levels from the back tees, and with its Bermuda grass the course looks more like a classic American-style layout. Two enormous man-made lakes provide the backbone of Golf Park Puntiró's challenge, and two couplets of holes - the 7th and 8th, and the 15th and 16th - are the thrilling showcases of any round here.
The 8th hole is 334m and the tee-shot is played directly over water to the fairway, leaving an approach of 65 to 90 metres. However, a parallel fairway has been built into the lake to the right of the green, giving the golfer a chance to play to this slim inlet and have a shorter 30-yard chip. The 16th is a dramatic short hole, playing 172 meters entirely over water to a raised and bunkered green.
