La Cima Club de Golf is located in the Andes Mountains near the town of La Calera about 45-60 minutes east of Bogotá, Colombia. The golf course is set amongst Colombian potato farms and cattle ranches.

The new Puma TitanTour was designed to be the ‘coolest’ shoe in golf, the TitanTour features temperature-regulating Outlast Technology – originally developed for NASA for use in spacesuits.

The Links at Fancourt Hotel & Country Club, South Africa

Mar 23rd
2015

Fancourt is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, and close to the country’s largest remaining indigenous forest, the Tsitsikamma. The Garden Route is one of South Africa’s most enchanting areas with sheer cliffs plunging into the Indian Ocean, glittering white beaches and the majestic Outeniqua mountains.

The Links at Fancourt Hotel & Country Club

Gary Player, who has been a part of the design team since the original courses at Fancourt, came on board to add the Links in 2000 and has gone on to say The Links is perhaps his greatest achievement as a golf-course designer. Player’s design team spent months studying the classic links courses of Scotland and Ireland and then, armed with inspiration from the best that those countries had to offer, embarked on the ambitious task of recreating some of their finest holes to make a genuine links test on what was once an airfield.

The result is awe-inspiring and has elicited praise from some of the world’s finest golfers – The Links was the host venue for the 2003 Presidents Cup, which ended in an historic tie after a dramatic play-off between Tiger Woods and Ernie Els.
