Amarilla is a gentle walk, which makes the course even more enjoyable, while still offering a defense through water hazards and strategically placed bunkers. The 5th hole stands out here, as you must play your approach across the sea to reach the green.

By combining large greens with wide fairways, the course at Abama Golf Resort does allow every standard of golfer to enjoy its challenges.

Dave Thomas designed this course, with the stand out hole coming on the 10th, as it rises 480-feet above sea level with a dogleg left. That isn't all, the course boundaries run along the right side and a series of lakes on the left must be avoided.
