El Caiman CG
Designer: Enrique De Guzman
Firm / Speed: Med / Med
Designer’s Notes: A course situated in the outskirts of Madrid, it has always been the ‘archenemy’ of Valderrama always competing for the Open de España. With a great 5 star hotel and just 30km from madrid it is the best choice for golfing travelers
Quick Review Notes: I’ve seen a few reviews for this course and comments on some of the small detail work, such as bunker sculpting. While all of that is valid, it should not prevent anyone from playing this course. These are some very smart and sound hole designs that present a real challenge, but always an opportunity to score. Perhaps more than many courses, this course can handle multiple plays, as many holes will play much different strategically on each play based on the wind direction.
