Just had a week there [mid October ] and found the course to be excellent and in good condition.A very good challenge with long three shot par fives and interesting par threes over water. The setting is lovely though there are simply hundreds of houses all round the course.We were told that there was an 18 hole par three course which would have been perfect for our friends who were beginners but it does not exist on Panoramica and instead there are three rather scrappy par three holes which you are expected to play six times for 15 euros. Really not acceptable. The practice facilities could be excellent but by the end of the season everything was worn and shabby and 7 euros for a small bucket of balls was a rip-off. I suppose worst of all was the lack of ancilliary attractions. The restaurant was closed except at weekends and it was a 30 minute drive to find alternatives. And there were no shops nearby. By October it was pretty much a ghost town and all around extensive building work had stopped due to lack of money and one was left wondering just how long Panoramica could keep going judging from the dozens of for sale signs on apartments and houses. For competent golfers, a good challenge but certainly not for beginners.

I played this course on 16.10.2015, being the 4th time I have played it. The course was in excellent condition and the greens very true. The course off the yellow tees is only 5600 yards, but played a lot longer as there is not a lot of roll. I walked it pulling a trolley and did not find it too tiring. 2 tips I would give to fellow golfers wishing to play this course is 1. choose your tees to suit your handicap and 2. the putts always seem to fall to the sea. Previous comments compare the clubhouse to Desert Springs - yes, there is no comparison, but then again the property around Desert Springs costs in excess of 1 million Euros, need I say more. Local ex pats would prefer to play Aguilon than Desert Springs, by the way.

Played here last week with our society . Course layout is very good. Unfortunately the course condition was abysmal. T box's uneven and we'll worn. Fairways an absolute disgrace ( those that were not gur or literally dug up) greens were mostly acceptable. If our society ever happen to book this place again I and possible another 12 -15 won't be playing. Sorry, just being honest

We played this course on 10 October 2015. We had been led by the GIS description ('fantastically manicured greens') and the reviews ('lush fairways and nice greens') to believe that the course would be up to the standard of Nuevo Portil, El Rompido and Islantilla, which we had already played. Alas, the fairways and greens were almost bare of grass in places, whilst the tees were often overgrown. The course has clearly been badly neglected in recent times, and was a great disappointment. We think that the GIS description should be updated.

We went from Tenerife and the time given us was hard to arrive on time and had to leave before finishing. Wondeful course. Going again in January 2016

Very entertaining and varied course. (Translated from a review in Spanish).

I like this course, some good challenging holes, but OK for the occasional player. Just need some bug spray as the water attatracts the mosquitos. Also can be wet under foot.

Picturesque location. Surrounded by undeveloped countryside. Course is in good shape, but expensive for what it is, a simple, forgiving, parkland course. There is no driving range or pitching area, just a practice green for putting, which again makes it poor value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Course in very good condition. Fairways are simply superb. Greens are challenging. Played late in the day and the greens were getting a little tired. A very fair course with some longer holes.

The condition of this course was very poor. A lot of dead areas and weeds in the fairways, and large bare patches on the greens. The scenery is incredible. This tricky, challenging course deserves to be cared for better.
