Las Colinas Golf & Country Club
Las Colinas Golf and Country Club is a qualifying venue for the European Tour and is located to the south of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. Set in a 330 hectare eco-friendly valley this course has wide fairways, large undulating greens and numerous spectacular views of the Mediterranean. The course is maintained to the highest Tour standards.
This golf course has been designed by Cabell B. Robinson who is also responsible for other acclaimed courses such as La Reserva (Sotogrande) and Finca Cortesin on the Costa del Sol, Praia d-El Rey in Portugal and the Royal Golf d’Evian in France, and the course is managed by Troon Golf, the world’s leader in upscale golf course management.
From the moment that you drive through the Canyon style entrance the impact of the resort is instantaneous and you just know you are in for something special.
The course is set amidst orange and lemon groves, giving a traditional sense to playing golf and it works its way seamlessly through the natural topography making the best use of the views, hills and valleys.
The course has generously wide fairways and more than the usual amount of right to left dog leg holes which will suit the lower handicap golfer who can draw the ball.
The average golfer will find a pleasant mixture of holes with some delightful par 3 holes of little over 100 metres to the par 5 eleventh which measures 534 metres (590 yards) from the yellow tees and an incredible 590 metres (649 yards) from the competition tees.
The course has six lakes which are well positioned to catch errant shots and they come into play more over the closing holes.
The greens have numerous subtle breaks and undulations and “run” at approx 10.5 on the “Stimp” meter which makes them almost PGA tour standard. This golf course is a “must” for all golfers visiting this area of Spain.
