Barranca

By

Definition: "Barranca" is a term that describes a physical feature of the land on which a golf course is built. A barranca is a dry ditch, gully or ravine that is filled with rocks. Sometimes barrancas are a mixture of smaller rocks, sandy soil and desert plants. When barrancas are present on a golf course, they usually are positioned to cross a fairway. How they are played is usually covered in local rules, but the norm is for a barranca to play as a hazard.
