Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course - Penina Golf
Originally designed on rice paddies, the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Golf Course has been transformed into a lush lot full of eucalyptus and palm trees. The fairways well maintained are quite flat with strategically placed water obstacles, bunkers deep, greens wide and a wide area of tee . The best known hole is the 13th, Par 3, which requires a long shot over a large lake and a green high.
This course is as challenging as it is rewarding, it has a variety of subtle tracks and raised greens, challenging even the most careful of golfers.
