All the holes for the Purificación course (rounds 1 to 3). We’ll go through all the specifics at the players meeting on Friday evening. Please visit the tournaments Facebook page or take a look at the following slideshow:
A hole for the big guns, a 74 meter uphill par three with the basket on top of a steep little hill. In order to make a birdie you’ll need a good drive and a decent putt, but be careful in the green, a sloppy putt may cost you dearly.
Twelve is a short but difficult uphill 72-meter par four hole. The shot from the tee is very demanding due to the low ceiling and the sharp left dogleg in a narrow fairway sloped uphill from right to left. The basket is placed at the top of the fairway, guarded…
This is an open 94-meter uphill par three with the basket placed in an green that slopes from left to right at the end of the fairway. In the standard version this hole is a right-handed hyze shot, in the competition version we split the fairway and the green becomes…
The back nine starts off with a short 82-meter par 3 hole with a fairway tucked between a greenhouse to the left and the woods to the right. The green is placed in the open space at the end of the fairway.
The 9th hole is a strong uphill par-4 at 117 meters. The fairway is open and tilts from right to left, with the out of bound area extending along both sides. The green is guarded by small trees to make the upshot more demanding.
This wonderful hole runs uphill perpendicular to the fairway of hole five, and along the same steep slope. The steepness of the area around the green leaves the player with a tricky approach or putt if you have a big arm.
The courses second longest hole is a 130-meter alley through a tree corridor extending along a fairway that tilts from left to right. The drive is played from an elevated tee and requires a delicate tee shot in order to pass the first of two double mandatories. The green is located in…
This relatively short hole brings out the sidearm of the right-handed player and leaves the leftie with a controlled hyze from the tee. The fairway slopes heavily from right to left. The green is flat and guarded in front by a couple of big trees.
With a panoramic view of the city of Oviedo running down the entire left-hand side of the fairway, this par three is a true postcard hole. With a 16-meter drop, you’ll need a precise and controlled first throw from the elevated tee to make the birdie.
