Sponsored by Costa Blanca Green Fee Services
Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions.
Around and about the golf courses
Since our last around and about the golf course article we have faced the worst storms and floods for more than 100 years which devastated some local course particularly those in Murcia so it is only appropriate that we provide our readers with a full update.
They have re-laid all 18 greens over the summer months and had planned to re-open the greens and the course in full by the 16th October 2019 and this has not been the case with play currently on 9 greens (which are in a poor condition) and 9 temporary greens and we will keep you updated when this situation changes.
The front nine holes (which were being re-modelled) were badly damaged by heavy floods and currently only the back nine holes are open for play so they offer only 9 hole rounds or 18 holes by playing holes 10-18 twice and this situation will not change in the immediate future and we will keep you updated of changes
Although the course was not too badly affected (except bunkers as on all courses) they lost their buggy fleet and they are currently operating with a reduced number of buggies.
There was significant damage to bunkers but the biggest problem is that after the water receded it left the fairways covered in silt and mud and the course is still closed and will remain that way until the 1st November 2019 although they are targeting the 25th October 2019.
The course was not too badly affected by the storms (other than the bunkers of which 80% are now back in play) but again they lost their entire buggy fleet and while they have been successful in obtaining at least 30-40 buggies they are still operating buggies on a first come first served basis.
New Sierra Golf
This is currently an excellent 9 hole course and they have now started initial works on the other 9 holes and have plans to open these additional holes by October 2021.
This course was probably the worst affected by the storms and floods with extensive damage to the course infrastructure and the course is still closed and will remain that way until the 30th November 2019.
We understand that work is taking place to re-open 9 holes but with significant changes to the original course design and will provide more information when known
We will attempt to keep you updated of any changes.
