Set against the backdrop of the Atlantic shoreline, the modern championship course is adorned with a beautiful array of lakes and waterfalls, while during construction no less than 25,000 trees were planted across the layout.
From the back tee markers, Abama reaches 6,815 yards, which is not particularly long for a modern construction, but visitors will enjoy the terrific variety of holes that designer Thomas has conceived.
Although there are many stand-outs, the 10th is arguably the signature hole, as it dog-legs to the left, bordered on one side by out-of-bounds and on the other by a threatening sequence of lakes.
