Ponderosa Golf Country Club is a masterpiece of terrain challenges, originally designed by Max Wexler and later re-modeled by Ronald Fream. The golf course measures 6,467 and 6,005 metres from the black and blue tees, respectively.
Though considered short by some golfers but with the sand and water hazards that Fream had so cleverly integrated into the varied contours and undulations of the greens, golfers will need more than just skill atPonderosa Golf Country Club. Strategic thinking will be the order of the day and smart swings will ensure a challenging yet interesting playground.
One of Ponderosa Golf Country Club’s signature hole is the 7th par-3 hole where the first shot must be carried across a large pond which runs along the approach, and all the way past the green. Matured khaya trees are the obstacles for errant tee-shots, left of the green. Precise clubbing is paramount, especially when the winds pick up in the later afternoons, to carry and land the ball on the correct level of this relatively small undulating green that runs from the back to front. Bunkers flank the green on either side, so keeping your tee shot on line is a must. A truly challenging hole layout and the toughest of all the par-3s.
