Played the Hills today for the first time. Course was in great shape and as a 10 handicapper I found it quite challenging. There were three 430ish par 4s, plenty of water to clear off the tee and before the greens. 4 or 5 tee shots you have to really hit straight to avoid not having a shot into the green. I shot mid 80s and would go lower now having played the course as I know a little more about where to put the ball (and where not too).

Overall an excellent test and a course that is in great shape. I should add that I played on Saturday afternoon which is the less busy day on the island for golf :-)

One of the better experiences I had all year because I was able to take my 6-year-old son with me.

They were totally kid friendly and even had a special set of black tees just for junior golfers, which is a bonus for such a good golf course.

You can get in trouble around the track if you're not driving it well, but if you are playing well you can shoot a good number.

The par-5 10th hole is the signature as the green is right on the beach and offers neat view of the water. Will definitely go back and play there.


Player Tip: Make sure you play the proper tees. Don't be a hero.
