Els Course Mission Hills

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6446 m / 7049 y | Type Parkland | Architect Ernie Els

South African golfer Ernie Els has created a name for himself as not only a world class golfer but an emerging talent on the golf course design circuit.  The Els Course at Mission Hills Golf Club lays testament to the fantastic eye the “Big Easy” has for designing courses that will stay long in the memory for their challenge and their beauty.

Measuring 7049 yards from the back tees the course boasts no parallel holes, creating an intimate setting for golfers to enjoy.  Swathes of lush green and perfectly manicured fairways are framed by the dense forested areas creating the image of luxury.

Split into two distinct 9, the front 9 being more mountainous and the back 9 flatter with the introduction of water hazards.

For those of you that want to enjoy spectacular views and be slightly less challenged on the golfing front then the Els Course, previously called the Savannah Course, is a good choice.

The fairways at times can be very narrow and are flanked by dense vegetation to punish those off-centre strikes. Having said that if you manage the course well you can easily avoid the narrow areas of the fairway.

Perhaps the best example of this is the signature par 5 fourth hole. Played from an elevated tee, the highest point of the course you are provided with spectacular views of the course, the Mission Hills Golf Club and the stunning natural scenery of the local area. It is a view to savour, but do not let it distract you from the task in hand. This hole is tough. A dogleg to the left the tee shot is the key to achieving a reasonable score. Too short and you will face a second shot over the trees and the creek that runs the length of the hole, too long and you will run out of room, miss left or right and you will almost certainly be out of bounds. The second shot is no easier and requires an accurate shot to find the narrowing fairway. The third must avoid the left and the creek that runs alongside the green.

In general, it is the par fives that are most interesting on this course, offering the greatest challenges. The 6th at 517 yards is reachable in two for some, but requires accuracy with the second to avoid the cavernous bunkers that protect the green.

The 11th offers the biggest hitters another chance to get home in two, but like the previous par fives is fraught with danger. The creek that runs through the course is prevalent in the design and play of the hole. Cutting across the fairway and then back towards the green to create a daunting second or third shot.

Hole 15 is the pick of the par threes with a naturalness to its design. A wide, large green almost creates a peninsula into the lake which provides the challenge.

The Els course is a beautiful golf course with arguably the most memorable hole at the entire complex and although some of the holes are not as memorable this has to be a course you try.

    AdditionalDescription:  {  html:  'Split  into  two  distinct  9,  the  front  9  being  more  mountainous  and  the  back  9  flatter  with  the  introduction  of  water  hazards.

\nFor  those  of  you  that  want  to  enjoy  spectacular  views  and  be  slightly  less  challenged  on  the  golfing  front  then  the  Els  Course,  previously  called  the  Savannah  Course,  is  a  good  choice.

\nThe  fairways  at  times  can  be  very  narrow  and  are  flanked  by  dense  vegetation  to  punish  those  off-centre  strikes.  Having  said  that  if  you  manage  the  course  well  you  can  easily  avoid  the  narrow  areas  of  the  fairway.

\nPerhaps  the  best  example  of  this  is  the  signature  par  5  fourth  hole.  Played  from  an  elevated  tee,  the  highest  point  of  the  course  you  are  provided  with  spectacular  views  of  the  course,  the  Mission  Hills  Golf  Club  and  the  stunning  natural  scenery  of  the  local  area.  It  is  a  view  to  savour,  but  do  not  let  it  distract  you  from  the  task  in  hand.  This  hole  is  tough.  A  dogleg  to  the  left  the  tee  shot  is  the  key  to  achieving  a  reasonable  score.  Too  short  and  you  will  face  a  second  shot  over  the  trees  and  the  creek  that  runs  the  length  of  the  hole,  too  long  and  you  will  run  out  of  room,  miss  left  or  right  and  you  will  almost  certainly  be  out  of  bounds.  The  second  shot  is  no  easier  and  requires  an  accurate  shot  to  find  the  narrowing  fairway.  The  third  must  avoid  the  left  and  the  creek  that  runs  alongside  the  green.

\nIn  general,  it  is  the  par  fives  that  are  most  interesting  on  this  course,  offering  the  greatest  challenges.  The  6th  at  517  yards  is  reachable  in  two  for  some,  but  requires  accuracy  with  the  second  to  avoid  the  cavernous  bunkers  that  protect  the  green.

\nThe  11th  offers  the  biggest  hitters  another  chance  to  get  home  in  two,  but  like  the  previous  par  fives  is  fraught  with  danger.  The  creek  that  runs  through  the  course  is  prevalent  in  the  design  and  play  of  the  hole.  Cutting  across  the  fairway  and  then  back  towards  the  green  to  create  a  daunting  second  or  third  shot.

\nHole  15  is  the  pick  of  the  par  threes  with  a  naturalness  to  its  design.  A  wide,  large  green  almost  creates  a  peninsula  into  the  lake  which  provides  the  challenge.

\n

The  Els  course  is  a  beautiful  golf  course  with  arguably  the  most  memorable  hole  at  the  entire  complex  and  although  some  of  the  holes  are  not  as  memorable  this  has  to  be  a  course  you  try.
