The GC Salinas de Antigua was skilfully integrated into the dune landscape of the coast by the double world champion Manuel Piñeiro. He clearly had the intention to defy the wind conditions of the island. The 18-hole par 70 course has partly desert-like zones, 4 lakes and the flora matches the arid surrounding area.
I've just played Salinas using the temporary greens which I've seen will be in use until the end of August 2016. These *greens* are a joke. They consist of a miniscule patch of land, not even as flat as fairways. Putting is a lottery, even from 1ft. The cups were hastily placed at, or on occasions even above the surface. The group in front of us paid for 18 holes, but walked off in disgust after 9. We struggled on, but things didn't improve. We even had the sprinkers turned on as we were playing on several holes on the back 9. They seem far more interested in their maintenance, than the players on the course.
