Where the Iron Meets the Rock

By Katherine Verano in Community, Golf

The Christophe Harbour golf course designed by Tom Fazio is built atop a volcanic ridge and along a natural inland cove. Planned over 250 acres, the Par 72 course will be 7,250 yards from the back tees. In addition to the terrain, wind will be considered a major design element and will influence shot selection choices in the upper holes. The beach-level-to-mountaintop environment, sweeping views of two oceans, and spectacular design will make the project unique – a “must play” international venue for golf aficionados.

A number of practical details will help make the course intriguing to every level of player. Bermudagrasses are planned for use in tees, fairways, roughs, and greens. Fairways will be sand capped, to create firm, fast conditions. Natural boulders and outcroppings will be used or recreated throughout the course. In addition, practically all holes will have water views.
