It had been raining before I teed off, but I was nevertheless surprised to find the course virtually deserted on a public holiday. I enjoyed playing Euphoria, beautifully lush and in outstanding condition. The rough was on the thick side, and the fairways narrow on some holes. A different type of bushveld layout to the nearby Matkovich courses at Elements and Zebula, relatively flat, yet slightly more challenging when it comes to scoring. It has some vast greens with gentle slopes and run-off areas, and is well bunkered both greenside and fairways. It plays long without much run so I chose the blue tees (5945m) and it was a sensible choice. The white tees are 600 metres longer and you need big drives to cope because the par 4s ain’t short, especially to back pins on raised greens. Golf carts are essential with the long distances between holes, and the cartpath provides a perfect ride. A memorable and tranquil bushveld experience, with each hole in its own remote space, gorges to cross over, and some magnificent trees, notably the pair guarding the right side of the ninth.
