Hacienda Pinilla Beach Resort and Residential Community offers a 7,300-yard course designed by Mike Young. He emphasized details and conformed holes to the landscape's slopes and contours. Risk vs. reward is the game, no two rounds are alike, and watch out for those trees.
A round at Hacienda Pinilla Beach Resort and Residential Community begins on a par-4 that forces you to tee left-center - keep low: it's windy - and midiron to the green, minding the pot bunker. The 14th is the longest, 601 yards, so combine muscle with wind and shoot middle before using a wood to the oblong green; as compensation for your hard work, the hole has the course's best ocean view. The 14th hole is only the longest by two yards: The 18th measures 599 yards into the wind. Drive right-center, use a wood for the second, being cautious to avoid a hidden bunker, and then short-iron to a perched green.
After all that, you'll be glad to know that the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Resort and Residential Community does indeed have a 19th hole, the El Corral Turn House, which was built to blend in with the natural environment.
