There are waves of native grasses and dramatic mounding, endless seas of sand, a river running through it, two bloodhounds and a rustic, timbered clubhouse – are there adjectives for this kind of golf? The newest addition to The Cliffs’ seven incredible offerings was named one of GOLF Magazine’s Best New Modern Courses the moment the reviewers could tee it up.
This is perhaps the most unique, intriguing, rewarding, beautiful, natural and authentic golf experiences on Earth. It is a singular work that has come to define Gary Player’s passion for conservation, and a spectacular experience where one simply runs out of adjectives.
A friendly front tee yardage of 5,019 stretches out to over 7,213 yards from the tips.
If everything is just a bit unique at Mountain Park it is the range that tops the list. There is a two-sided teeing green. Acres for chipping and putting. And because golf is about targets, an array of welded barrels and farm equipment have been fashioned and placed around the range to receive the well-placed wedge or mid-iron. A dollar says you can’t put one in.
The Joust is an exciting Par 5-3-4-5 finish to the Mountain Park golf course, inspired by architect and golf legend Gary Player. It offers an individual risk-and-reward challenge to the golfer who chooses to accept it. Aiming for a reachable par 4 and with well-executed shots, brave players can experience an exhilarating finish to their game.
