Boavista Golf Course Tips

Hole 1 (Par 4)
322 305 340 286
On this opening hole the drive is to play for position off the tee. Over the hill the ball will run from right to left which may leave you sitting behind the tree guarding the green. The approach is to shot to the right side of the green avoiding the left front bunker.

Hole 2 (Par 3)
134 118 148 108
The inverted pear shaped green is well protected by several front bunkers so choice of club is paramount. The surface of the green brakes quickly from right to left.

Hole 3 (Par 5)
447 416 475 340
The tee drive line is to the marker post on the hill and too far left you will find the rough. The second shot should avoid the two fairway bunkers as there is limited landing space between them. The green a defending front right bunker and has two levels so depending on the pin position make sure you find the correct one.

Hole 4 (Par 3)
177 155 201 133
Do not land short of the green as the ball could catch the low wall guarding the front of the green. There is also a narrow depression between the wall and the green that gathers any under hit shot.

Hole 5 (Par 4)
301 249 305 224
From the white tee drive straight down the middle. From the yellow tee a long hit may reach the large bunker guarding the green. An accurate approach shot is important as the green slopes from back to front and also right to left.

Hole 6 (Par 3)
175 152 194 126
Players should ignore the valley and aim on the tee for the middle of the green as the the ball will draw back to the pin. If the the green is missed it is preferable to be a little short than too long as the chip back down the slope is very fast.

Hole 7 (Par 4)
315 286 323 261
As this hole has a slight right dogleg fairway the tee shot should be aimed for the visible ruin. The approach shot to a green that is guarded by bunkers, front, left and right, so a ball landing landing on the left of the green will run down to the right.

Hole 8 (Par 5)
432 400 454 385
A good tee shot is imperative if you are not a long hitter off the tee. The player is then left with a challenge of laying up to the valley or carry it. Laying up will result in about a 150 metres approach to an elevated green. Note that a front and a left bunker defend the green.

Hole 9 (Par 4)
302 281 312 261
A straightforward hole but avoid the right fairway bunker. A solid tee shot will leave an easy approach shot to a large green guarded by front and left bunkers.

Hole 10 (Par 4)
400 342 404 298
A dogleg left fairway so a drive to the corner will make the green visible. The approach shot is all carry to a narrow green well protected by three bunkers. Preferably stay on the left side of the green for an uphill putt as the ball runs quickly from right to left.

Hole 11 (Par 3)
174 153 179 130
It is important to land on the green as anything short will stop leaving a chip shot and a run down the slope.

Hole 12 (Par 4)
352 338 377 323
There are two bunkers and the rough guarding the tempting Tiger Line to the left. The wisest line is to the left of the right hand fairway bunker. The green is protected by front deep bunkers and a short ball on the green will run from right to left.

Hole 13 (Par 5)
498 478 512 435
Another straightforward hole demanding a solid shot from the tee. Avoid the bunker on the right so the second shot will be to carry the stream that crosses the fairway 100 metres from the green. When long off the tee there is this temptation to carry but consider laying up with an easy approach shot to a generous green that runs from front to back. The large guarding bunkers left and right will be out of play with an accurate approach.

Hole 14 (Par 3)
194 145 227 112
A 145 metre hole from the front tee and only 194 metres from the back one. The challenge is over water with Out of Bounds on the right and rough on your left. A solid tee shot required to the green which runs from left to right.

Hole 15 (Par 4)
375 369 390 290
Water hazards are directly in front of the tee with a bunker and more water on the right of the fairway. A long uphill required shot to a well guarded green by two front deep bunkers that are waiting for anything short shot.

Hole 16 (Par 5)
483 466 510 436
A good tee shot will take the ball over the ridge and run down a steep hill with perhaps ending in a position to go for the green. Be careful of the three strategically placed fairway bunkers as there is little room between them and this also applies to any laying up shot. The green runs sharply from left to right and from front to back.

Hole 17 (Par 4)
275 265 284 256
This is not a long hole but the drive must be straight off the tee as well as water hazards run up on the right of the fairway. On the approach shot an inviting large pond lies in front of the green with a stream to the left side.

Hole 18 (Par 4)
381 333 418 314
The finishing hole is another slight left dogleg. Visually from the white tee the two bunkers that are not easily seen cover the right of the fairway. From the yellow tee a straight shot will place the ball in a good position for a long approach uphill. Players may wish to take an extra club for the shot to avoid the defending front bunkers. Attempt to finish below the hole as any putt back is very fast.
