Golf Novo Sancti Petri, inaugurated in 1990, was the first golf course in Spain designed by the legendary Severiano Ballesteros. The resort offers two golf courses (round A: Mar-Pinos, round B: Centro) with a total of 36 hoyos whose challenging design adapts to the playing characteristics of professional players as well as of amateurs.
Round A:The Green of hole 6 is the most spectacular as it is situated upon the beach. Holes 10 to 18 are bordered by pine trees, without water hazards. If offers four Par 3, ten Par 4 and four Par 5.
Round B: The first 9 holes are flat. From hole 10 to 13 the terrain is undulating and offers magnificent looks over the atlantic ocean. Hole 18 has an s-shaped bunker (Severiano). If offers six Par 3, six Par 4 and six Par 5.
The great reputation of the Melía Sancti Petri is only equalled by the beauty of the unspoiled beach of La Barrosa, located in front of the hotel. - 7 nights BB + 5 green fees + Spa + transfers + extras from 755€ pp
Not bad, but pretty ordinary, although the greens were good. Terribly slow on the day we played, with a lot of people who shouldn't have been allowed on the course, so that may have coloured our judgement. It's a simple parkland course, rather a dull layout, but with a few nice treed holes.
