Overall impression Ok.

We played the course in February 2017th Wen you do not speak the language it is complicated with the club contact record. First, we wanted to get back directly to the Secretariat, as this seems the easiest option for us. When we took the way to the golf course purchase, the security service would not let us pass. His statement: We would have to report to the secretariat and make a reservation by phone first. The man on the phone said that we should just drop by. So we tried a second attempt, with success.
The price of the green fees were told verbally. To speak the language, it was difficult to know how the tariff is established. Even the paid green fee was tucked right in your pocket. Makes for me a special impression.

The place itself is very well maintained. Drought is not to be found in the square. The lanes are very narrow. An accurate play is required. In addition, the tracks are the same located side by side. For-call are therefore not uncommon. Water hazards, there is very little in this square. It flows a small stream running through the golf course, it would already be.
For guests there is a caddy duties. This will increase the price for green fees. It is also recommended to start his rounds in the early morning. After lunch, you have to struggle with the heat.

Tropical Golf a stunning mountain backdrop

Comparatively nice, well-kept and moderate course on tropical mountains, which offers especially in the afternoon and evening with an intense color play. Railways themselves relatively flat with no outstanding demands, but to play nice - fast greens. Club facilities and ambience agree.
