This used to be the Orient Golf Club until the Caesars Group purchased & took over the club in 2007.
The club is situated on the Cotai Strip – between the islands of Taipa and Coloane – about 20 minutes from the ferry pier ($70-80 in a taxi). The new Taipa terminal is even closer, 10 mintues.
Club Facilities & Service
The old club house was built by Orient but since the tookover by the Caesars group, both the clubhouse & the course are being upgraded to provide a more exclusive touch, restaurant, locker room, cafe and balcony are all nicely decoarted. Service of the staff are warm & attentive.
Fairway & Green maintenance
First-class. So far so good, it seems. The greens were a touch slow when we visited but they rolled beautifully. Fairways were nice too, the Paspalum really sits the ball up nicely.
Golf cart can on fairway, ideal for those who do not like to play during Summer.
Caddy Service & knowledge
Very good. They are getting to know the golf course now.
Although it’s relatively flat, the designer manages to hold interest the whole way around thanks to its variety. There are dogleg rights, dogleg lefts, straightaway holes. There is also a good blend of short and long holes. A personal favorite of ours is the ninth – a delightful short par-four that can be reached with a big drive. Watch out for the lake short of the green though!
The par-threes 12th is strong hole, especially in the wind which tends to blow pretty steadily regardless of the time of day…
