Signature hole at Isla Canela Old Course
The most striking and beautiful hole is the par 4 10th. Teeing off over one of the many saltwater channels with precision so as not to hit OB to the right hand side into the Estero de Puerto de Plata. A safe drive of over 200 Yards is needed to enable a look at a second into the green.
A distance of around 130-150 yds will carry perfectly onto the green, but be wary as a long second will find the sand, pushing to the right will find sand and a wayward shot left will find one of the many saltwater ponds flanking the course.
This hole gives a taste of everything, both danger, risk reward and a fantastic sweeping view out over the Estero de Canela river leading out into the Atlantic sea.
