Quality of Course
Value for Money
Flattish but with its own challenges....
Playa Serena was a total contract to La Envia GC which we played yesterday. The terrain was flat and easy walking. Lots of water holes to manage making it interesting to plan your route. Again, fairways and rough had very lush grass that could have done with a cut. The greens were not at their best but playable.
The Proshop was very smart with lots of chic clothing, gadgets etc.
Ladies changing rooms very posh too.
The charm about playing this course was the scenery, the Sierra Nevada chain in the background and the little bar/cafe at the start of the round where one can stop at half way too and at the end of the round. Food, coffee and alcoholic drinks available much cheaper than at the adjacent & posh hotel, tapas were delicious too.
Quite a lively day with lots of golfers enjoying the course, mainly Scandinavian or British, one can always tell the the ways golfers are dressed !!!!!!!
One can clearly see how the mountains have been cut through to build huge holiday complex and roads, it does look very attractive with all the palm and olive trees. There was lots of wildlife: crested woodpeckers, jays etc. and of course ducks/geese due to the numerous lakes.
This was the 2nd round of our golf package which we chose but in retrospect probably not the best time of the year due to the condition of the greens.
the town nearby seems quite lively and there is a lovely marina, a pleasant place for a holiday.
