What the club says: This is a resort course that has two sets of 9 holes. They are the Resort Course and the Academy Course. The overall layout of the course is quite flat, with trees lining the fairways. The fairways are wide enough for a few stray drives but there are a number of holes that will require a bit more accuracy.

Most Helpful Review

I played this in April 2010 on one of the annual get aways and it was brilliant, everything was good. I especially liked the 2 courses that were situated on the hotel complex, no need for transfers, the staff were good, they kept your clubs in the locker room so there was no need for lugging them around, excellent, only downside is that I've not been back - May 6 2013

Very disappointed with our round at Penina. Despite having booked a buggy in the UK we arrived and were told we had to wait for a buggy. We waited almost an hour for a buggy and the staff in the pro shop were less than helpful or sympathetic. In saying that the guy that got us a buggy was very helpful. But I was very disappointed with the course too. The fairways were shabby in parts and the greens not in good condition with pitch marks all over that had been left unattended. I was so looking forward to playing a championship course and felt it was left wanting - such a shame.

I found this course rather boring for such a well known and established course.

I kept getting deja vu, as I approached many of the tee boxes, as so many looked the same.

There was no wow factor about any of the holes.

However we really should have warmed up before we played. We fell into the trap of "The course is empty, do you want to go now?"

We should have said, "No we are early. We will share a basket of balls on the range".

As it was, it took me 5 holes before I loosened up.
