Temenos Golf Course Anguilla update

Postby Anthony » Wed Jun 07, 2006 3:33 pm

From a recent press release:

All of the 18 holes of the 7,100-yard course have now been shaped, by establishing sub-grades, including bunkers, greens and tees. The course includes an 18,000-square-foot double green, situated on the dunes of an adjacent white-sand beach, which is shared by holes #2 (Par 3, 181 yd.) and #10 (Par 5, 582 yd.), as well as an 80-foot-high elevated tee on hole #6 (Par 5, 600 yd.). The October, 2004 Robb Report called the first hole, "The Caribbean's answer to the 18th at Pebble Beach."

Temenos Golf Club offers a course where sand, wind and water blend seamlessly with Anguilla's natural environment to present a golfer's paradise. Additional course highlights include:

-- Golfers are greeted by a spectacular vista of St. Maarten and the Caribbean Sea at the tee box of the 390-yard starting hole. The fairway descends over 40-feet to a narrow, two-tiered green sitting precariously on the edge of a saltwater lagoon.

-- Playing dead into the trade winds, the perilous drive on the 440 yard sixteenth hole is framed by large sand dunes on the left and the Merrywing salt pond on the right. The elevated green is surrounded by water and protected by deep bunkers, and offers sweeping views of Rendezvous Bay.

-- The drive for the finishing hole carries the edge of the mangrove thicket in a vast stretch of saltmarsh that winds through eight of the course holes. The narrowing fairway ascends forty feet through rugged terrain to a narrow green carved out of the native shrub.
