Pebble Beach On Steroids
“There are a lot of places your golf ball can go on this course, and many of them are not good,” cautioned Ryan Brandeburg, the director of golf at a thrill ride of a course called Cape Kidnappers. “Especially on the cliff-side holes, where a ball can get swallowed by the ocean,” 500 feet below. The course tilts toward the sea, tumbling along serrated ridges and over folds of wrinkled turf as unpredictable and exhilarating as anything in Wales or Ireland or Scotland. It’s Pebble Beach on steroids. Cape Kidnappers golf course was completed in 2004. It was designed by legendary golf architect Tom Doak.
