Mar Menor, La Torre, Saurines, Hacienda Riquelme, el Valle and Alhama Golf courses feature a golf offer in one of the most important golf destinations in Europe. It is a kind of European Arizona golf course circuit Nicklaus Design that elevates golf to its maximum potential. This design, Jack Nicklaus signature, combines a careful landscape gardening with the strategy and skill of top players.
The Mar Menor Golf Resort is committed to high quality service and golf course maintenance and it offers an accommodation variety that includes the Intercontinental Mar Menor Golf Resort & Spa Hotel and The Residences Apartments and thus, provides all the elements for visitors to enjoy a complete golf experience.
One of its main attractions is the possibility of playing in 7 different but complimentary golf courses.
The challenge starts in Mar Menor Golf, a golf course located inside the complex that requires good strokes to leave the ball in the fairway in its first part and has greens well-protected by bunkers and lakes. La Torre Golf is ideal for middle and high handicap players, a real challenge for more skilled golfers that start from the white tees and have to choose the appropriate strategy to leave the ball in the fairway with a perfect stroke. Our third option is Saurines Golf, a desert style course with undulated fairways and greens surrounded by deserted dunes, bunkers and a six-acre lake. The next challenge suggests playing in two golf courses that have hosted important competitions. Hacienda Riquelme opens its way through the wild flora and olive trees and has deep greens that make putting strokes more difficult.
On the other hand El Valle Golf, challenges players with hidden strategy elements and thus, rewards precision more than distance. Alhama Golf Signature is considered one of the best golf courses in Spain. This long spectacular course has five big lakes, circular tees, wide fairways and fast greens. It challenges any level player, both professional and amateur; its perfect and well-figured design forces you to think carefully about each of your strokes as greens are well protected by strategic bunkers.
Hacienda del Alamo is the last course that has joined this circuit. It has been designed by Dave Thomas and it is considered one of the longest courses in the south east of Spain. It has 40 acre-surface and more than 6,000 metre-itinerary as well as long holes and breathtaking views.
