Dramatic breaking waves

The course carves a verdant figure of eight through arid desert scrub around the Soma Bay peninsula. Several holes are set along the top of low cliffs pounded by waves or swell. Spray sometimes leaps up dramatically as golfers putt on the green of the signature par-3 5th hole, called “The Pebbles of Soma” because it requires an accurate drive over the beach and breaking waves to a green which juts into the sea. Another par-3, the 14th, is known as “Second Signature” for its tee shot over desert to a green backed by the Red Sea.
