Cape Kidnappers GC

Designer: Mitch Kiser

Course Description:

Designed by legendary architect Tom Doak, the Cape Kidnappers par 71 golf course measures 7,119 yards (6,510 meters) and will challenge golfers of all skill levels. Completed in 2004, the spectacular New Zealand golf course has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. Tom soak quoted "our goal in designing golf courses is to create interesting holes you wouldn't find anywhere else. That wasn't hard to do at Cape Kidnappers, because the site is not like anywhere else in golf. If it were any bigger or any more dramatic, it would probably be cordoned off as a national park. It's an overwhelming experience to stand up on the cliffs, 140 meters above sea level, and look out across the waves far below in Hawke's Bay." This is a RCR of the course to the best of my ability this is the original setup as I'll be doing different versions of it the greens are medium with 187 speeds. I used google earth to recreate it as accurately as possible.
