Kristal Golf Resort
The 18-hole international par excellence golf course is crafted out making use of the undulations of a scenic valley... From most of the elevated teeboxes you will be able to see the green and the hazards ahead, mature palm and rubber trees combine with sharp slopes to narrow the landing areas considerably.... The key to low scores at Kristal is to be able to hit straight, not long, as off-line shots could wind up out of bounds, unplayable or in dense vegetation...
The course comes with Japanese-influenced landscaping which certainly enhance the scenic value of Kristal. The drink hut between the 5th and 12th holes straddles a gurgling boulder-strewn creek, providing visual as well as liquid refreshment for tired golfers.
The course is both challenging and refreshing to the avid golfer...
