Ribagolfe (No. II or Green Course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2004

Ribagolfe (No. II or Green Course): Don't think that just because it is called Ribagolfe II (alias the Green course) it plays second fiddle to Ribagolfe I (alias the Blue course). Although not as long as the Blue, this is both a delightfully natural course and a tough cookie at the same time. Cork-oaks (and occasionally eucalyptus trees) create some quite tight fairways, where flailing away with the driver may not be your best strategy. Water is only a concern on the par-4 6th and par-5 13th holes, but staying on the short grass and out of the rough will be your main preoccupation - unless that is you are into gathering wild flowers, which you can do in abundance beyond the tightish fairways. Defensive bunkering in front of most greens will often require high-flighted approach play, rather than running the ball in low. Although the surrounding "open" woodland scenery remains constant throughout, every hole is individually sculpted, ensuring a thoroughly interesting and absorbing round from start to finish. There is no question, any first time visit to Ribagolfe should involve playing both courses.
