The layout of the course is stunning with its lush green fairways and beautiful greens. And of course it’s signature hole with island green. It’s hard not to fall in love with this place.

A course for experienced golfers

I always recommend Roda Golf to the mid – high handicap golfer as it’s a feel good factor course in my opinion but don’t be mistaken by thinking it’s an easy course. With water in play on holes 7, 9, 12, 13, 14, 18 and bunkers strategically placed on every hole it can be tricky at times.

An overview of the front nine holes of Roda Golf Rosort

The front nine are tougher than the back nine and therefore will define whether you have a good round or one to forget! 

The greens on the front nine are smaller therefore your approach shots must be accurate or you will find trouble.

Hole 4 is stroke index 1 for a good reason. The fairway is narrow and my advice is to stay centre or to the right side of the fairway. Or there is a good chance you will find sand and your approach shot will be blind! Stay right and you will have a mid to long iron into a narrow green which is heavily protected at the front by bunkers for those who come up short! Par is a great score on this hole but I don’t grumble with a bogey.

The fifth is a very easy par 5 with two good shots you can easily be putting for eagle.

Hole 7 is picturesque with palm trees surrounding the tee and a beautiful island green. You can hit anything from a 4 iron to PW on this par 3 depending on wind direction.

And the back nine holes

The back nine holes are more open and this is where birdies can be made especially on holes 10, 14, 15, 16, & 17. 

Hole 10 is a par 5, stroke index 18. With a wide open fairway and only bunkers up the left. The key is to keep your drive and second shot to the right side of the fairway and you have a great chance of birdie!

Affordable and good weather in Roda golf
