2018 Spain Golf Cruise | GOLF COURSES
Alcanada was designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr and opened for play in 2003. Situated in the northern part of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, it is located right by the sea with its beautifully manicured layout blending perfectly into the typical Mallorca landscape. The club takes its name from a nearby island just off the shore which, complete with its own lighthouse, can be seen from most of the holes. Apart from the magnificent sea view, players are surrounded by pine and olive groves throughout their round. Although a relatively well-kept secret the course has already received many accolades from various magazines and publications.
El Saler GC
El Saler Golf Club is located on the outskirts of Valencia within the Albufera Nature Park. Designed by Javier Arana, one of the most prestigious Spanish designers and opened in 1968, it sits nearby the beach occupying terrain dotted with pine trees and sand dunes and has a distinctly “links” feel. It’s famous “cats claw” (not dissimilar to the Monterey Peninsula’s “ice plant”) is certainly to be avoided in the rough.
Las Colinas GC
Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is a modern Cabell Robinson design situated within an upmarket residential estate of 815 acres on the Costa Blanca. Opening in 2010 the course has wide forgiving fairways with forested hills overlooking the course giving a feeling of seclusion. A Par 71 championship course, Las Colinas is managed by Troon Golf which is present in 26 countries and manages over 190 courses worldwide, 39 of which are in the world’s top 100 courses. The course has extremely versatile holes, making it ideal for professional competitions but also offering any caliber of golfer a fantastic experience.
Valderrama is a perennial World 100 layout consistently been rated among the five best in Continental Europe. “The Augusta of Europe” is a private club originally designed in 1974 by Robert Trent Jones on a hill above the old Andalucian village of Sotogrande. He was recalled in 1985 for a remake that has subsequently hosted a plethora of championships including the Volvo Masters and the 1997 Ryder Cup remembered for Europe’s late, great and charismatic captain Severiano Ballesteros.
The Oceânico Faldo Course at Amendoeira, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, opened for play in 2008. In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale’s heather, and spartan holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play. It also enjoys great views, on the back nine.
Oitavos Dunes is located on the most westerly tip of Europe and mixes wonderous views of the Atlantic Ocean with the stunning backdrop of the Sintra Mountains. Oitavos was designed by the renowned Arthur Hills and is one of only two European Courses that bear his name. The course is a recent addition to the area in golfing terms and was inaugurated in 2001 while now ranking in the world’s top 100 courses. Oitavos Dunes is a par 71 course that measures 6,300m from the competition tees. The course is a lovely mixture of woodland and links-type holes that make the most of the existing landscape.
