Among the interesting design features at Copperleaf is a par 3 without a bunker or water hazard, the 14th. It comes as a surprise after the abundance of bunkering on the first 13 holes. No 14 is still a challenging hole though due to its length, tricky green and thick bushveld right of the green. A back right pin position is scary to play to. There is extreme rarity value in a par 3 without a hazard in SA, although not at an Ernie Els design. The par-3 third at Highland Gate is another, although it has enough trouble around a sloping green to compensate for their absence. The few others you find in SA are generally on long par 3s, such as the uphill second hole at Elements, and uphill sixth at CCJ Rocklands.
