The Boschenmeer 9 has a new feature: a Par-3 Course with its own purpose-built artificial surface tees sponsored by Boschenmeer House (guest lodge on the first fairway). Many clubs have followed the Par-3 bandwagon begun at St Francis Links, but none to my knowledge put in permanent tees as Paarl GC have done. It’s simple and clever. Temporary grass tees, in the rough or edge of fairway, get hacked to pieces, creating work for maintenance staff. These tees have been positioned in interesting areas off the fairways, creating different angles to the green. The club will use them in a monthly event.
