Robert Trent Jones II welcomes you to Zala Springs! We are thrilled to have designed a golf course that is meant to played and experienced by players of all skill levels in a variety of different and imaginative ways. Every golf hole at Zala Springs will give you a wide range of strategic options. This includes different ways to approach greens. You will be able to reach the green via the air or the ground with each option presenting a unique set of challenges. You will also be able to use the many fairway short grass green surrounds as a strategic advantage on many holes, but you will also encounter fairway shots that will present a challenge. Discovering where slopes and contours mowed tightly to accept shots are, and which fairway areas are to be avoided will be part of the hidden strategy we have designed into this exquisite, beautiful course.
We hope you enjoy your round on this world class golf course as much as we cherished creating it!
