Cape Schanck on the 6th of December

A group of 6 of us headed out to Cape Schanck to celebrate my birthday. There was Dick, Shane, Neil, Trevor, Stuart & myself. We had a near perfect day for our little adventure, clear blue skies with a little bit of wind.

The course is one of the best that I have played at, from the first hole it is a gorgeous course to both look at & play. The fairways are perfect & well looked after the greens are HUGE with massive undulations through them, it is quite easy to 3 & even 4 putt on these greens if your leave your self a long way from the hole. Some of the greens looked to be 20 to 30 metres long!!

There are so many things to mention about this course that I can’t do them all justice is this little review so I wont try. There are a couple of thing I would like to point out.

There are back to back par 3’s on the front nine. The 172 metre 4th followed by the 137 metre 5th. The par 3 7th & the par 5 8th both have water in play off the tee. The 8th is a spectacular hole, in my option the best on the course.

On the back 9 there were a couple of holes that I would like to mention. The 12th is a 334 metre par 4. The hole has a blind tee & doglegs to the right. The green is well below you for your approach shot, it makes for a very interesting hole.

The other hole is the 153 metre par 3 14th. It is another gorgous hole, with a ocean back drop. The second private course here at Cape Schanck is visible from here as well.

Another thing of mention about Cape Schanck was the staff. They were pleasant & very helpful. We had a group of 6 & they charged each of us for half a cart even though 2 of us were in a cart by our selves.

We had a great day out & would like to thank everyone who came out especially Shane & Stuart who drove us all out there. Thanks for making it a great day.
