Thomas' brief was to create a golf course that could be enjoyed by everyone, and would also be totally harmonious with the natural landscape and its indigenous plant and wildlife. The lush green fairways are bordered by stunning flora and fauna, while the brilliant white sand makes for fantastic contrasts of colour.
Thomas has shaped the landscape and incorporated three startegically positioned lakes into gently undulating terrain to produce a layouyt that is truly enjoyable for all standards of golfer. The fairways are generous but wild shots will be punished by the surrounding trees and rough. The design is also typically Dave Thomas in that the golfer cannot overpower the course, and is required to think his or her way around in order to be rewarded with a decent score.

The outstanding new facility at Roda is of such great quality that the PGA of Europe have chosen it as the venue for their first golf academy outside the United Kingdom. The region is blessed with 300 days of sunshine during every calendar year, so this is the spot for a golfing getaway in the dreary winter months at home.
The resort has both 2 and 3 bedroom apartments which only opened at the end of 2006, and are ideally placed for accessing Dave Thomas' golf course. The apartments are perfectly equipped to ensure that your self-catered accommodation will be comfortable and luxurious.
The resort is owned and managed by one of Europe's best golf resort management companies, De Vere, and Roda, along with its brilliant sister resort, Corvera Golf and Country Club with its super Jose Maria Olazabal-designed course, is blessed with all the facilities you could dream of, including a number of outdoor swimming pools and the superb beach club. The golden white sand is pounded by over 300 days of sunshine a year, making it perfect for relaxing and soaking up the rays.
