2019 Spain Golf Cruise | GOLF COURSES
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, in particular on the back nine.
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.
Finca Cortesin is ranked as one of Spain’s finest golf courses by Golf Digest Magazine. Cabell B. Robinson’s design beautifully complements the natural landscape. It provides a perfect balance between 20 varieties of flora, the typical Mediterranean forest and the perfectly manicured bermudagrasses of the golf course. Finca Cortesin played host to the prestigious Volvo World Match Play Championship for 3 years, with many of the world’s finest professional competing.
El Saler GC
El Saler 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.
Son Gual GC
Son Gual has been lauded since it opened in 2007. The Thomas Himmel designed layout is considered the finest of the Balearic islands and is one of the most talked about venues in southern Europe, with the European Golf & Travel Media Association naming it as ‘The Discovery of 2010’. Son Gual enjoys a lovely location, peppered with mature olive trees and wildflowers, with its design and conditioning being of the very highest standard.
