The island of St.Helena is in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean at roughly 15° 57' S, 5° 43' W.

Here's a map showing the location of the course in Longwood (next to Napoleon's house). Zoom out to find out how St.Helena is situated in the middle of the ocean.

 

A subtropical island, but continuously under the influence of the South West trade winds, which bring mostly temperate weather conditions, St.Helena sometimes struggles to keep good quality grass healthy. Ground conditions contribute to making what appears to be an easy course into a somewhat more challenging experience.
