The chefs at Miramar Restaurant fry, grill, and steam a flavourful array of classic Chinese dishes. Beef and broccoli are topped with a succulent dark sauce, and barbecued pork plates tempt eyes and tongues with colourful mixed vegetables. Among house specialties, the Bird Nest pays tribute to a storied delicacy without actually displacing neighbourhood wildlife. A selection of vegetarian options ensures diners of all dietary stripes leave satiated.
Composed of nine challenging holes, the course at Hidden Hills of Shellbrook extends to 3,227 yards stretched over a canvas of emerald green. The course maintains its dazzling hue thanks to an irrigation system that keeps the turf quenched and repels the feral cats that like to nap in the fringe. Play twice intersects a meandering creek that trips up momentum for many a player, nowhere more dramatically than at the eighth hole, a 376-yard par 4 with a vicious dogleg right. Here, players must hold back on their tee shots to avoid overshooting the fairway, and then fly their approaches over the creek’s volatile waters. Golfers who haven’t paid visits since 2009 may also notice a significant increase in overall difficulty thanks to a reconstruction project that tacked on 745 yards that year.
