Pula Golf Course. Par
Pula opened in 1995, and is a promising course
with an already well-grassed and pleasant playing
surface despite its early age. Only slightly hilly,
the course is easy to walk, but elevated greens
call for controlled high approach shots.
The width of the fairways at Pula gives a pleasant
sensation of open space, and will appeal to big
hitters, although they should watch out for a number
of hazards that are not always clearly visible.
Designer Francisco Lopes Segales has not attempted
any sort of exploit in style and has followed a
British tradition with intelligence and good taste.
At all events, he has succeeded in creating a course
such as Pula whose development deserves to be watched
closely. It is well suited to players of all abilities,
fits in beautifully with the landscape and offers
fine panoramas over sea and mountains.
