Golf Course Review – Condado de Alhama

This is the ‘signature’ course of the ‘golf trail’ designed by Jack Nicklaus himself and each hole is based on some of the holes from his favourite courses around the world and feels very much like a ‘links’  course with rolling fairways, fast undulating greens and knee high rough in places.

To find this golf course from Torrevieja exit the AP7 motorway at junction 790 (Los Alcazares Centro) and follow signs to Torre Pacheco and then to the A30 (Murcia-Cartagena) passing through El Jimenado until reaching the very large roundabout and take the exit for MU-602 (RM-2) to Fuente Alamo and continue ahead until reaching the RM-23 taking the exit for Mazarron and following signs for Condado de Alhama and once within the resort follow ‘golf’ signs.

As of the date of this review there is no clubhouse and the pro-shop is located in the ‘Al Kazar’ commercial centre which is located some distance from the 1st tee which is where you can hire and collect buggies, trolleys and hire clubs. The course has a good driving range with chipping and putting greens.

This is very much a true golfers course which is a genuine par 72 championship layout of  6,059 metres (6,6664 yards) from the yellow tees, which tests every aspect of your game but notably the accuracy of driving and distance control. The par 3 holes are all approaching 200 yards in length and will need either a long iron or recovery club to find the putting surface.For the longer hitters the par 5 holes are all approx 500 yards in length and reachable with a few good hits from the ‘screws’ with a long carry over water which awaits any errant shot that you may hit.

If you are having a good day and the driver is ‘behaving itself’ then with a few strong tee shots there are a few birdie opportunities on a number of par 4 holes of less than 400 yards BUT a few stray drives will see your score rocket and it could also be costly in lost golf balls.
