Old Quarry Golf Course, Santa Barbara Resort Curacao

 Hole Descriptions

Front Nine Hole Descriptions

 #1 - Par 4 - 358 yards 

Take a deep breath and play down the left side because the wind usually blows towards the ocean on your right. The green is well bunkered so if you want a safe side it will be left side of the green. 

#2 - Par 5 - 544 yards

With a well-placed tee shot in the fairway the layup can be anywhere from a 3 wood to a 7 iron depending on what you are comfortable with hitting into the green.  After hitting on the green it’s a matter of an easy two putt to move on. 

#3 - Par 3 - 160 yards

The Hole starts with an elevated tee to feel the predominant breeze. The green sits in a well-protected spot behind a rock formation that shelters the wind. Try to drive the ball into the front of the green and release. 

#4 - Par 4 - 362 yards

Hole 4 this is a short tricky hole that requires your tee ball to be on the left side of the center to have the best approach to the green. If you manage to hit the green, birdie can be made. 

#5 - Par 4 - 464 yards

A good approach shot will find the green and make sure the yardage is correct because the pot bunker in front of the green is some 30 yards in front of the green creating the effect of the hole being shorter.

#6 - Par 4 - 303 yards

If you try to drive the green you must be on line because the bunkers around the green are severe enough for any golfer. Lay back and choose your favorite club for your approach and still think about those bunkers. 

#7 - Par 3 - 131 yards

The hole normally plays downwind so be cautious not to go over. A well placed shot on the green will bring a welcome birdie or par. 

#8 - Par 5 - 539 yards

From the tee box you choose how much of the hole to cut off without finding the water on your right. The layup is generally downhill, downwind, with an elevated green. Hitting it a club or two short is a wise play. Huge green for you to hit. 

#9 - Par 4 - 376 yards

On your approach shot avoid short left as the ball will cascade down to two sand bunkers with a difficult shot ahead. The green is blind all the way so trust your shot distance. Wow what a nine. 

Back Nine Hole Descriptions

#10 - Par 4 - 368 yards

A well placed drive will yield a short iron approach that will stop on this elevated green. The wind is right to left and the water is left all the way. 

#11 - Par 4 - 415 yards

Hit your best drive into the wind and prepare for a 3 wood or long iron again into the wind. If you hit two great shots you might have a shot at birdie. If you sink the putt you are better than most. 

#12 - Par 5 - 540 yards

Layup to the right side fairway where your approach is quite inviting, although you are trying to put it close on the smallest green. After you putt out you can decide how to play it differently next time. 

#13 - Par 3 - 205 yards

The mountain to your right will provide tricky swirling wind and the green is almost blind from the tee. Trust your distance control and avoid hitting it short as most balls will run down the hill and giving you a difficult recovery chip.

#14 - Par 4 - 371 yards

A well struck driver will give you a wedge shot to a good sized green. There is water in front of the green so stay to the left if possible. The green has a few undulations so read the putt carefully. 

#15 - Par 4 - 431 yards

An accurate drive e left of center is an ideal place to leave you with a mid-iron approach to the elevated green. The green is large and undulating with 5 levels of pin placements. 

#16 - Par 3 - 172 yards

The green appears small from the tee but is actually ample in size for this mid iron shot. The correct shot is right to left but don’t go too far left and down the steep hill. The wind is normally from Left to right so that will help hold a shot. 

#17 - Par 5 - 447 yards

After hitting your drive right or left you have a different angle for your approach. The green is a bit elevated but has a very receptive slope in the middle of the green that will hold a long iron shot.

#18 - Par 4 - 412 yards

Not long at 425 from the back tee, but downhill, downwind so watch that ball run. With a short iron for your approach be careful to judge the lie.
