About the Bob Hunt 18-Hole Championship Golf Course
The uniqueness of Prestige Golfshire is its amazing rippling fairways, reminiscent of the links courses of old. The mature landscape of the old farmlands has been retained as far as possible to provide a serene setting for the back nine while the front nine is more exposed to the elements. The course has been designed on a heroic scale with vast undulating greens, several of which are two-tiered. Deep shapely bunkers, vast lakes and streams run through the course providing challenging Golf hazards. The Golfshire Club Course measures over 7000 yards from the championship tees. Employing the wild shaping of the links courses and a distinctive bunker style, this course offers a rugged beauty as well as a tough but fair Golfing challenge.
