Mar Menor Golf Course is a Par 72 measuring 6154m, it is situated close to Los Alcazares, Murcia and is 10 Minutes from San Javier/Murcia airport and 55 minutes from Alicante airport. Originally designed as a 9 hole course by Dave Thomas, it has been converted into an 18 hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Emphasis is on ball positioning in the correct part of the fairway, and then below the flags on the undulating greens. The new holes offer some very challenging contoured greens with 4 holes placed around a very large spectacular lake. In particular the 15th hole will test your patience as the small landing ‘areas’ from the tees are well guarded by bunkers. This is an enjoyable, but challenging test of golf for all abilities.
La Torre Golf Course is a Par 68 measuring 5403m, it is located near the town of Roldan, Murcia, and is 15 Minutes from San Javier/Murcia airport and 55 minutes from Alicante airport. Although it is one of the shorter Jack Nicklaus designed courses, it has over five hectares of elaborate bunkers and waste areas often running between the holes that demand a level of respect and accuracy to every shot.
There are three large lakes that come into play on 6 holes and the golf course is complemented with lush landscaping and great views. Beware of the par 3 9th and 11th holes, they can quickly ruin a good card.
El Valle is a Par 71 measuring 6185m, it is located near Banos y Mendigo, Murica, and is 20 minutes from San Javier/Murcia Airport and 55 minutes from Alicante Airport. This Jack Nicklaus course sits in a small valley surrounded by stunning views of the Murcian hills and countryside. The course is undulating and has been well designed utilising the natural terrain and incorporating some very well placed hazards. Two lakes and cascading brooks add to the difficulty on the back nine including the par 4 13th hole which has a lake down the left, out of bounds down the right and a small brook strategically placed around the green, accuracy is paramount on this hole.
Saurines golf course is a par 72 measuring 5,938m, it is located near the town of Roldan ,Murcia, and is 15 Minutes from San Javier/Murcia airport and 55 minutes from Alicante airport. The course is a Jack Nicklaus design but unlike the majority of his courses in the area you will notice the lack of bunkers. The hazards are created by heavily planted dunes between the fairways, two lakes, one of which is some 6 acres in size, rolling fairways that give it a links feel and elevated and very undulating greens. The par 5 holes all measure less than 480 metres and are reachable for the longer hitters but you will have to be accurate because there are hazards waiting for anything left or right of the greens. This is a great addition to the golf courses in this area and is well worth a visit.
The Championship Alhama Signature Golf Course is located close to the coastal town of Mazarron, it is a Par 72 measuring 6884m, designed by Jack Nicklaus himself, and an exciting challenge for golfers of all skill. The course takes on a natural rugged appearance as the undulating ribbons of dark green paspalum grass fairway snake their way through the native Murcian landscape. All golfers’ shot-making abilities will be challenged by the undulating bent grass greens. The beauty of the course is further enhanced with four large lakes, dramatic bunkering, and perfectly manicured playing conditions. This strategic test of golf is sure to be a stern yet enjoyable golfing adventure for everyone.
Hacienda Riquelme is a Par 72 measuring 6356m, it is situated close to the Spanish town of Sucina, 15 Minutes from San Javier/Murcia airport and 55 minutes from Alicante airport. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the fairways run between Olive trees, wild flowers and 5 lakes creating a true test of golf and some stunning views. The fairways have been sown with the latest variety of Paspalum grass which has a high saline tolerance which should keep it in top condition all year round. The par 5 4th tees off from the top of the hill and dog legs around the lake to a well protected green but if you have the nerve and the accuracy the big hitters can get up in two and offer a chance of the elusive eagle.
