Course Information

Autovia C-3319, Murcia, Costa Calida, 30155 , Spain

Opened in 2007, El Valle Golf Resort is one of the top resorts in the Polaris World group.

Thepar-71 golf,Nicholas designedcourse, is situated in a beautiful natural desert valley.

The course was laid out ina “core” format that places groups ofholes together while keeping the surrounding development on the perimeter. This means that many holes border other golf holes and not the more traditional 'villa lined fairways'creating a more open and natural golf experience.

Arguably the toughest of the Polaris World courses,the course puts a premium on accuracy, not power, and favours the intelligent player who can manage his or her game.

Visitors are always welcome (contact club to make arrangements)

Before leaving our base, we had been told only good things about this course. This can sometimes lead to disappointment but in this case, no chance – we loved this course.

On arrival, you are greeted by a very modern and spacious clubhouse with a large patio-ed area to enjoy a pre (or post)round drink. This overlooks the 18th green and is high enough to enjoy a welcome light breeze. There is an open air practice area and balls are only a few Euros for a basket of balls.

As you walk to the first, you immediately know you will enjoy the day. The vast wide fairway (with strategically placed bunkers) is beautiful with a mountainous backdrop that wouldn’t look out of place in the Arizona desert. The tee boxes again were very good and well tended to and cleared marked for all levels of golfer.

As we made our way around we commented on how well the course was designed and that every hole provides you with a different challenge. Ranging from short-ish Par 4 to tempt you to expansive 450 m+ Par 5’s, this course has something for everyone.

The course twists and turns with slight inclines and drops that won’t leave you out of breathe. However, there are plenty of bunkers for you to find (on one hole we counted 10) so you will need to think your way around here.

So to the signature hole: It does take a little effort to walk to the elevated 11th tee, that gives you a panoramic view for miles around. However, once you’ve taken in the view, you’re then faced with teeing off over rocks and on to the fairway 50ft below, where bunker will catch a wayward shot – brilliant!

The greens here were very good. Not too firm that you can’t land on them but quick enough to get you thinking. All were true. Whilst water is not the main feature here, the back nine does require plotting your way around some pretty and challenging water but this all adds to the variety of holes.

Finishing the day back on the patio area, we enjoyed some great service, good food and a refreshing drink, whilst we discussed the ups (there were no downs) of both the course and its layout. We will definitely be returning to this course again.
