Quality of Course
Value for Money
The 'Tour' took in three locations including La Finca itself, Las Ramblas and Villamartin...
Las Ramblas is a course I knew nothing about before arriving but wow, what a course, a course like nothing I have ever played before....
Set in dusty and rock lined countryside, this place should be renamed Las Ravines....never have seen so many in one place and so tightly bunched together. Neither have I played quite so many blind shots, dog-legs or played across so many ravines....this course is definitely the 'hardest' course I have played. Unsurprisingly, with no previous experience of the course, I didn't score well.
However, I will say this, its probably one of those courses, that the more you play it, the more you understand it and the more you want to beat it.
The greens were lightening quick (10+ on the stimp meter), perfectly manicured, with very few pitch marks, so someone is taking care of it well.
Everywhere you look there are densely wooded palm and 'olive' trees, making it for a pleasant walk but I do have a criticism.... if I am playing on a course of this quality, I do not expect to be playing out of bunkers with sand so hard, with a coarse texture, whereby I am frightened my clubs are going to be damaged but this seems to be the case on all courses in the area.
Finally, stop to have a drink in the clubhouse, its clean, airy with great views of the circular lake the numerous holes work around. The staff are friendly and good humoured and the food was good too.
Will not rush back, but only because my game is not of good enough standard to warrant the return ( would suit 10 handicaps and below better) but I would recommend you visit at least once, if not just to say you've got the T- Shirt!
