This course was originally opened as a 9 hole course designed by Dave Thomas later converted into an 18 hole course designed by the great Jack Nicklaus.
Without doubt this is an ideal resort or society golf course with an emphasis based on positioning the ball in the correct part of the fairway from the tee and then below the flags on the undulating greens.
Some of the earlier holes can ‘lull’ you into a false sense of security but when you reach holes 13,14 and 15 all of which wrap themselves around a man made lake, you are quickly brought to your senses. In particular the 15th hole will test your patience as the small landing ‘areas’ from the tees are well guarded by sand bunkers
Played the corse after lunch. Good mostly flat course in pretty good condition. Course seems busy and by the afternoon the footfall on the greens and particularly around the cup was well pretty bad and cut up. Shame as actually course seemed well maintained but maybe too popular for its own good. I still enjoyed my round and will go again.
Great course, well worth a visit. Superb greens and in excellent condition for the amount of traffic it gets. Cant understand the negative reviews...must have been playing a different course, i'll be back!
Played Mar Menor yesterday, and will probably not play it again as there are better courses in the same region. Pretty long course, especially front nine. Bunkers impossible to play well as they are hard as concrete. Not much varations between the holes. They are all flat, and protected by fairway and greenside bunkers. Not much water in play. Would recommend Las Colinas and La Finca (in Torrevieja) over this course any day.
