Located in the Delta of the “Rio Corubal” at the Atlantic cost of Guinea Bissao on the little Island of Enu this golfcourse
offers some very scenic costal views. Unfortunately this course can only be played in the virtual environment of TGC as it has not (yet) been built.
On the generous driving range and training facilities the local golfteachers offer courses and individual lessons for players of any level, from nebie up to expert players. Tho the official HCP requirement to play this course is 36, it’s no problem for unexperienced beginners to go out and play the course. All you need is the clearence from one to the local teachers.
The 18 holes course with its wide open holes invite players of any level to enjoy a relaxing round of golf. Certainly for longhitters the positioning of the T-shots on these holes is crucial to recieve birdie chances. Some holes offer good variations of risk/reward options but there is allways a save routing available.
Accomodations can be booked directly at the golfclub and some of the rooms are directly available in the clubhouse area, some are in the nearby harbour. *
in more details, including some tips from the designer.
Par 5 613m: A good start to prove that your warmup on the driving range was successfull. Hit your drive over the bushes on the right side into the wide open fairway. Aim the 2nd shot into the gap between the trees left of the green. The green slopes down from left to right and back to front.
Par 3 195m: Dont be afraid of the bushes on the right and keep your t-shot short. The green is slopes down from front to back, right to left in the upper part and left to right towards the end.
Par 4 422m: From the mens T’s the fairway on the drive is open and visible, whereas the ladies have to go over some bushes on the left side. The uphill upproach shot is better placed a little left of the pin as the green slopes down from left to right and from back to front.
Par 5 648m: This long par 5 playes shorter then its total length indicates. The typical shot into the green is a PW. Make sure to place your t-shot safely on the fairway. For the 2nd shot aim for the left edge of the tree right of the green. The green generaly slopes down from left to right.
Par 4 298m: A short hole, make sure not to overdrive your t-shot. Aim for the bunker left of the green, typically using a 3w. That leaves a short pitch into the green. X-longhitters go for the green. The green itself is flatish.
Par 3 182m: Typically played with a 4i left of the pin as in most places the green slopes down to the right.
Par 4 418m: A long double doglegged par 4, where most advanced players hit t off over the trees on the right side. The rather small green slopes down from right to left.
Par 4 352: Not much to say about this shorter hole. The flatish green is well guarded by some bunkers. So place your t-shot for an accurate approach if you encounter a front-right pin.
Par 4 399m: On this longer hole requires a solid t-shot over the open water into the narrow fairway. If you killed a fish, tell the cook in the clubhouse and he will send one of the boys to get it and prepare it for diner. While playing your apporach into the green, make sure not to have to much spin on the ball. The green severely slopes from back to front.
Par 4 370m: After your halfway break and having told the cook about the killed fish make sure to hit your t-shot long enough to open up the view to the green on this dogleg to the right. The saddle green waiting for your approach is sloping to various directions. Make sure to stick your ball close to the pin.
Par 3 153m: Mind the bunkers on that uphill shot into the green. The green itself is allmost flat.
Par 5 530m: This short par 5 is reachable in 2 if you have clam or tail winds. Placing the drive left of the biotop in the fairway leaves a 220m shot into the green. Mind the protection walls for the flatish green area that had to be build after the last storm hitting the island.
Par 4 352m: Don’t be afraid of the trees on your apporach, you clear them easily. The green is sloping down from back to front left.
Par 4 366m: yet another driver-wedge hole if your not scared of the bunker and the trees on the right side. Make sure to play your approach long enough for not ending up in the deathvalley in front of the flatish green.
Par 3 152m: Place your shot out of the green tunnel slightly right of the pin. This green is slightly sloping down from right to left.
Par 4 341m: Make sure not to overdrive, unless you need to wash your ball. 220m will do. The green slopes severly from back-left to front right.
Par 4 328m: Straight t-shot recommended. Don’t overshot the green when approaching, this might put you in trouble. The green has 2 flat levels, elevated in the front.
Par 4 374m: Any drive aimed just right of UA is fine. Make sure you stop your ball on the approach shot if you encounter a back-pin. There the green is sloping down towards the terasse, for the short pins you will find slopes to the left.
Par 1 1m: HIO mandatory. Make sure to draw your drive with the drink as the force of coriolis is turning counterclock wise on the southern hemisphere. Cheers.
