Traditional English-style layout

The Alexandria Sporting Club course is very much a traditional English-style layout, albeit with palm trees and yearround sunshine – luxuries its builders would not have been used to back home. At less than 6,000 yards, it may lack distance, but the mature trees, small greens and gaping bunkers guarding greens ensure golfers don’t get off too lightly.

Get too close to one of the large trees and you will find your way to the green totally blocked. The trees also provide welcome shade from the sun. The course has four par-3 holes, ranging from 175 to 210 yards, and four par-4s. There are two par-5s, the 13th and 14th, the club’s longest at 580 yards

Each hole has two tee positions. Pick of the holes is the 5th,
a 205-yard par-3 which leaves little room to go left or right
and leaves you with a difficult return shot for your second if
you go beyond the green and find the lurking bunker.
