3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.
Ohope International Golf Club: Stumbling onto hidden gems is always a travelling golfers delight, and Ohope is one such course, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Although some of the front nine is quite compact and almost parkland in nature, the back nine in particular is undeniably links golf, and links golf at its best. There are lots of humps, bumps and hollows, long par-3's and dog-legging par-4's in an open links environment. Bunkering is light, but when the wind blows you'll be glad of that. At just over 6,100 yards from the back tees, Ohope is not overly long, but that's not the important thing here. What is most relevant, is a very enjoyable layout with some classic links holes, like the short par-3 11th played from outside the clubhouse, and the par-5 14th and 15th holes, which would grace any of the great links courses of Scotland. Talking of Scotland, the front-nine views here are mainly onto an inland lagoon - as beautiful as Loch Lomond; on the back-nine sea views are more in evidence, especially from the exhilarating tee-box at the par-4 18th.
