Designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 2010, Corales is an exclusive and dramatic 18-hole course with six Caribbean Oceanside holes. Designed along the natural cliffs, bays, ocean coves, and the inland lakes and coralina quarries, Corales Golf Course rates among the World’s finest Golf Experiences. The exhilarating challenge culminates in playing the Devil’s Elbow, Corales’s last three holes. The Devil’s Elbow features the striking eighteenth hole with a dramatic forced carry over the cliff-lined Bay of Corales, an inspired capstone to a memorable and breathtaking golf experience.
Most of the fairways are routed around a residential development that sits a little way back from the coastline with a final couple of holes on each nine cleverly positioned adjacent to the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. Water only comes into play once on the front nine at the 390-yard 3rd but there are plenty of other hazards in the shape of huge waste bunkers to keep concentration levels high. The outward concludes with a stunning 173-yard par 3, where the green sits in a rather exposed position atop a rocky headland.
