The Kaya Golf Club course was designed by Irish golf course designer and Master PGA Professional, David Jones. He said, ‘ Kaya Golf Club was a very interesting project for me. I often see golfers frustrated by monster courses of 6500 meters or more in length. At Kaya I had a compact site to work with and decided to aim for a shorter layout which would be enjoyable for all golfers, including those who do not hit the ball vast distances. I think I have achieved that. Kaya is challenging and has quite a few dramatic holes where the player must choose between risk and reward. But we also have many shorter par threes and fours where the interest is provided by strategic bunkers and subtle green contours. A course for everyone, I would say’. 18 holes. Par 71 5558m
