Characteristics

The Oceanico O’Connor Course complements the neighbouring Oceanico Faldo Course and also takes full advantage of being situated in a fertile valley. Its various water features, both lakes and watercourses that are spread throughout the entire course, demand accuracy from all golfers, and the rich topsoil has been skilfully landscaped and planted with mature palm trees, affording a lush, ornamental setting like an extensive oasis. This course has tees that are generally connected to the fairways, but its greater overall distance, the water hazards and big greens provide its challenge. Golfers must also be prepared to read the subtly contoured putting surfaces that are strong features. Holes 7, 8 and 9, average length par 4’s, offer a particular challenge as all three run alongside lakes, so golfers concentration and accuracy of tee shots as well as approaches are vital. 3rd and 17th holes are both excellent par 3’s. Two consecutive par 4’s, the 14th and 15th with large rolling greens, are tough hurdles to overcome at such a critical stage of the round, and then the finishing hole, requires a precision drive to set up the approach to a two tier green benched into the hillside. The 18th hole brings the course to a fantastic finish, a gentle climb with the river running along the right hand side. This hole is a humdinger; once you get up here and look down on the golf course, you will feel you have been blessed.
