DAY 1 - GOLF LAS AMERICAS
Arranged in two returning loops of nine holes, the course measures a relatively modest 6,607 yards with a standard configuration of two par threes, two par fives and five par fours on each nine. The landscape gently slopes towards the coast, offering some pleasant elevation changes, particularly on the outward half. Water hazards are in play at several hoes, but never to the extent that they dominate proceedings.
A favourite stretch for many visiting golfers on the front nine starts at the right doglegges 2nd on the lower end of the course, continues at the 3rd, which has a creek running in fron of the green, then the short par four, uphil 4th, leading to the intimidating par three 5th, with its small lake to the front left of the green.On the inward half, the 153-yard,par three, 13th is a potential disaster waiting to happen as its putting surface is surrounded on three sides by water.
Texas Scramble tournaments involve teams of 2 golfers and a flight of 4. In a Scramble tournament each team member tees off on every hole. After the initial tee shots, the team selects the best shot out of their teammates and then each team member plays their next shot from that spot. This continues throughout the rest of the shots on the hole including putting. A player is allowed to place the ball within one club length of the spot of the best shot, but not nearer to the hole. The scramble will be played as a stroke play event. Each player must make a minimum of 6 drives. Scores will be cumulative.
IMPORTANT: Pro players will play from white tips
Transportation will be provided from Palm Mar
