Hella golf course is a great course, when you play at Hella golf course, you will see that it has black sand in their sand traps. The black sand can also play a big role if you miss a fairway, as it lies around most of the fairways. The black sand can be challenging, and a pro tip from us, if you end up in the sand, is to try your best at getting the ball out on the fairway in as few shots as possible.
