Tierra Rejada Golf Club Overview: Tierra Rejada is a golf course with two very distinct feels. The front nine is characterized by immense elevation changes, shots over canyons and blind shots, whereas the back nine is a little less extreme. The golf course has several good holes, some even bordering on great, and every par 3 is strong. However, the amount of strange holes limits this golf course’s overall attraction if the player is a little wild on any given day or the wind is blowing strong. The best golf holes are reviewed below:
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 1 (right): A slightly elevated tee to a reasonably wide fairway gives the player a chance to hit a good drive to prepare for the next two shots. The second is played to a narrow fairway with a steep hillside leading down to a lake for the pulled shot and a well-placed fairway bunker and hillside with bushes right. The approach must be played to a green nestled next to a lake fronting its entire left half. A little creek feeds that lake from its source around left of the green and will punish errant shots left that miss the lake or two greenside bunkers.
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 2: The first par 3 of the round requires a precision shot from the tee. Anything left of the green by more than five feet is gone as it will bounce left across the path and down the hill. Large bunkers await a short shot and anything to far right will find a hillside. (below)
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 5: Although tight with trouble on the left, this hole is relatively short and can be attacked with a fairway wood tee shot or long iron to still leave a short iron in. The green is wide and distance control is a must with a large bunker short and hazard / hillside long. The green affords nice views.
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 7: Dainty to say the least, number 7 isn’t a very tough hole, but it is pretty. At only 150 yards, which is slightly downhill, par should be made here. However, any shot pulled, hit short or blown long, will find its way down the steep hillsides surrounding this peninsula green. The views on a clear day are great.
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 13: On a course full of significant elevation changes and unusual shots, this long par four is just simple, straight forward golf with a tough second shot that must stay left of the water hazard, with a nice waterfall behind.
Tierra Rejada Golf Club Hole 17: A tricked-out version of the postage stamp hole at Royal Troon, this golf hole requires precision. At only 118 yards, it is straight down hill and plays more like 100 at the most. However, the green is long, but very, very skinny. It also has 3 distinct levels. So, if you hit the right level, you have a relatively short and flat put. If you don’t, you’ve got a long, nasty putt or a tough chip.
