Penina Championship

The 18-hole Penina Championship Course features holes which are crossed and flanked by a series of streams, ditches and water hazards, demanding precisely executed shots.

The course is beautifully maintained, winding past tall stands of eucalyptus and clumps of palms to mainly elevated greens which have subtle slopes and sometimes treacherous speeds.

The memorable par-three 13th has been voted one of the best 500 holes in the world and requires a long carry over water to a green guarded by sand.

The course is characterised by an unusual grouping of the par-5's, with four of the five arranged together in pairs at the beginning and end of the back nine producing a par of 38 as opposed to 35 for the front nine.

Penina also offers a 1,850m nine-hole par-30 Academy Course for players to sharpen their skills on before or after their rounds on the Resort and Championship courses!

Penina Resort

Penina’s Resort Course is a strategically demanding 9-hole course with 18 tees designed along the same principles as the Penina Championship course.

The course features a number of lakes and sand hazards making it an enjoyable course that tests the skills of all abilities.

Holes 1, 2 and 3 are all tree-lined dogleg par 4's where keeping to the fairway is a definite advantage. The only par-5 is the 499m 5th hole, long and straight with an elevated green, a typical Penina feature.

The par 4 6th hole, with out of bounds to the right, requires a precise drive through a narrow avenue of tall trees, whereas the drive on the dogleg 7th needs to be a controlled draw followed by an approach steered left of a greenside lake that is too close to the green for comfort.

A long par 3 with many bunkers and a long par 4 finish this pleasant course.

Penina Golf Resort also offers a 1,850m nine-hole par-30 Academy Course for players to sharpen their skills on before or after their rounds on the Resort and Championship courses!
