3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1997

Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club (North course): Although the shortest of the four layouts at Innisbrook, the North course (formerly Highlands North and more recently Osprey North) is a wonderfully testing shot-makers' layout. On this relatively tight out-and-back design, frequent water hazards, sandy waste areas and densely tree- and bush-lined holes are much in evidence.

With nine holes taken from the original Copperhead layout and nine from the former Sandpiper course, Innisbrook's North course provides a pleasant mix of flatter terrain (where most of the water threatens), and more undulating woodland stretches. In this delightfully natural housing-free environment, it's no surprise to find plenty of ospreys nesting in the tree-tops and diving into the ponds for their take-away fish supper.

Among many attractive holes, the good-length par-3 12th would grace the front of any picture-postcard, with its large sandy waste area fronting a tree-framed green. Two other par-3s bring water into play, while the par-4 3rd, 5th and 14th holes all require approach shots over water to find the safety of their subtly-sloping top-quality greens.

Good course management and accuracy from the tee will be rewarded, and hopefully keep you on the often doglegging and not overly wide fairways. When water is not present the holes are predominantly tree-lined. This provides a less than welcoming reception for stray tee shots, but a great habitat for the fox-squirrels that live on the course. The North course may lack the distance of its Innisbrook stablemates, but for a golfing challenge in a natural environment it's a gem.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
