Designed by Greg Norman to exist in harmony with the natural desert landscape, Fire is a tough and, needless to say, a fiery challenge for golfers of all abilities. While the Earth course uses bold colours to provide its contrasts, Fire’s are more refined. The native grasses display a golden glint in the sunlight, and away from the immaculate playing surfaces, large terracotta bunkers punctuate the rolling terrain.
Framed by a wide variety of captivating flora, carefully selected to reflect the overall theme and to enhance its natural setting, Fire is in complete harmony with its surroundings.
Thanks to the undulating topography and stunning natural features, each tee has a unique perspective, increasing both interest and challenge. Tee placements offer variety, with length, direction and elevation constantly changing throughout the course. Strong bunkering has been carefully placed to catch wayward strokes, forcing players to concentrate carefully on tee shot placement.
As for your approach, greens stress the importance of positioning so going directly at the flag may not always be the best option – a wayward shot could carry a heavy penalty. The Fire course is a challenge you’ll relish and an experience you’ll want to repeat.
