Combined with open green complexes and fairways running up to the sand, the Norman course presents a stunning challenge for any golfer.
The stunning waste areas and the site’s natural vegetation were used to frame each hole. The course resembles one found in the deserts of the Southwest, without the desert. For example, one hole has fairways that flow into the native areas surrounding the course while another hole features fairway and a partial rough transitioning into the native areas. A third distinction is a formal rough that encompasses the entire golf hole. There are no angular or artificial lines in the shape of the course. Bunkers have sloping white faces (similar to a MacKenzie style golf course) with intermittent sod wall bunkering at strategic locations throughout the course.
The Norman Course is a Par 72, approximately 7,200 yards long and was designed with Norman’s philosophy to bring into play the”bump and run” shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots.
The greens are gently undulating and consist of an average green area of 6,300 square feet. The green surfaces consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass.
Norman’s record on the golf course ranks among the worlds best. Included in his achievements: 79 career victories (through January 1997), three-time Vardon Trophy winner, two-time British open winner, PGA Player of the Year and three-time winner of the Arnold Palmer Award for Leading Money Winner.
