Montgomerie Links is built in sand in the vicinity, but not adjacent to the magnificent beach.
Water features prominently on a number of holes - some of the water holes were quite spectacular- and more than a little intimidating!
The back nine was more heavily bunkered and appeared to play longer (maybe I was tiring in the heat?).
The greens were interesting with significant movement - but not to the point of being excessive
I really liked the fact that the course included a couple of short par 4's where a player could choose to take on the bunkers and water or lay up and have a short iron in.
Perhaps the only query I could raise on the strategic merit of the course was that a couple of the longer par 4's had very tight approaches.
Overall I was very impressed by Montgomerie Links.
The many Casuarina trees gave it a unique look and I found the course both challenging and fun to play.
Plus, all the services were excellent.
I hope to go back again soon!
