The Greg Norman designed Tiburón Golf Club again plays host to the Franklin Templeton Shootout, which is a three-day event in teams of two playing three different formats. Thursday is a Scramble, Friday is a modified Foursomes and Saturday is a better ball.
The Black course is a beauty and beast set up, with some spectacular views, but if you miss the fairways – which are a mixture of wide, tight, tree lined, water lined or with sand and waste areas forming the boundaries – you certainly pay the price. Water comes into play on 15 holes and including the waste areas, there are around 50 sand traps situated near the landing zones or greenside.
From next year the QBE Shootout will become a mixed event between the PGA and LPGA Tours
