The first Bonairean Golf Club "Piedra So" is founded on April 14, 2004.
Imagine playing in a complete natural local environment, which means no grass grown fairways, sophisticated greens, but fairways with the spares local vegetation and "browns", existing from local soil, instead of greens. These browns are maintained as often as possible, so putting becomes not too difficult. Putting on the "browns" stays however an unpredictable challenge. The founders of the course kept as main goal, to keep the landscaping as natural as possible. Not hurting any vegetation in order to make this an ecologic course. They completed their goal very successful, as the players even have to challenge some water hazards. In dry season these water hazard is marked by yellow poles.
Above you find the lay-out from our new links course of eighteen holes. It is a par 72 course with a total length from the men's tees of 6,175 yards (5.557 meters) and from the senior/ladies tees 5,378 yards (4.840 meters). Good to know is that on the front nine holes the greens(browns) are covered with artificial gras. This makes putting still a challenge but an honest challenge ! On the tee boxes you find mats to tee off.
The course is perfectly integrated into the existing environment which gives this course an unique ecologic flavor.
Playing this unique course has already proved to be very challenging. Even for the more skilled players. Our experience is that most guest players with low handicaps are challenged to reach their handicap score. Often without success !
