In the fall of 2004, Granada Golf Course started to be quite famous at Coral Gables. It is an 18-hole championship course that attracts hundreds of players and golf enthusiasts. Granada is arguably the most scenic and prettiest course in the area. It has something for everyone, from rolling hills to breathtaking views, beautiful creeks, pine forest, and the like. The administrators and staff are indeed proud of what they can offer.

The course ranges from 5k years from forward tees to more than 7k yards of back tees. John Paul, the Director of Golf, said that it comes with the best par 5’s in the village. With around 7 miles of cart paths, it is said to play shorter than it reads.

There may be some disadvantages to its location since it is seated at the foothills of Ouachita Mountains. But the magnificent views, long fairways and large driving areas totally make it up. People indeed love it there. The course features Tif Sport Bermuda along its fairways, tees and roughs. Moreover, the greens are a mixture of L93 and Crenshaw Bent Grass.

The Best of Granada

But what truly makes Granada Golf Course special? Its signature hole is the beautiful 18th with a meandering waterfall that stretches through the length of the fairway. This fall is said to be built entirely out of rocks that were removed during the construction of the golf course. On the other hand, the best yet most difficult holes on the course is at par 4 no. 17, which comes with a green 60 years in length. It is indeed challenging, even with pros.
