Leopard Rock Hotel , Where to Stay
Leopard Rock Hotel Golf Course is one of the world's most spectacular course with stunning views from almost every hole. The Peter Matkovich-designed layout measures 6164 meters off the Championship tees with almost every hole being a feature hole.
After holing out at the picturesque 8th green which is surrounded by fern trees and a water feature you will walk through the rocks up to the 9th Tee to face the ,The Leopard Rock, one the many feature holes, an intimidating Par 3 which plays 160 m from the club tees but all the carry is over water.
After a ice cold refreshment and a light snack at the Golf Clubhouse which will leave you rearing to take on the rest of this Matkovich master piece.
After easing through the first few opening holes of the back nine, the stern test starts at the Par 4, 412 meter, 13thHole. The tee shot must be steered between the rocks on the left and the lush tropical forest on the right. Then you are faced with a shot of between 150 & 200 meters over a ravine running across the front of the green, which has a severe slope, that will punish any shot favouring the left.
On to the 14th, an elevated tee, which has a spectacular back drop of the mountainous Burma Valley. This par 3 has an elevation drop of 30 meters down to the green protected by two small dams. It's no wonder that this hole is named the 'Matkovich'
Throughout the course wild orchids, tree ferns and other flora species indigenous to the Bvumba abound, while the lush bush teems with bird life. With stunning views and the undulating bent grass greens, the course is a challenge to all golfers and leaves one with the great desire to return again and again.
