The desert theme of Saurines golf courset is apparent through the vegetation and layout of the holes
It is is an 18 holes par 72 desert style golf course which has been designed by Jack Nicklaus with the layout influenced from the design of the famous Lakes Golf Course in Las Vegas, USA.
The courses main characteristics are undulating fairways and greens, desert dunes, deep bunkers and a great 6 hectare lake that comes into play on both the 9th and the 18th holes. The 18th hole is a par 3 with the lake on the right and a sharp gully running across the green. This presents further opportunities to ruin a good round and guarantees an exciting finish.
The clever design and undulation of the greens, can cause problems to even an expert golfer. The simplest looking approach shot can catch you out as a poor chip can leave a very interesting putt!
