Villamartin Golf Course in Costa Blanca

Villamartin Golf Course is perhaps one of the finest and
favourite golf courses in Spain and the best in Costa
Blanca. It is located around 8 kilometres from the town of
Torrevieja in Costa Blanca and a short drive from the
Alicante - Cartagena motorway. This is the first course
from the QUARA Group and was designed by Paul Puttman which
opened for play in 1972. It is perhaps the most established
course in this local Community.

The club displays class as soon as one enters the property,
complete with a statue of an adorable lady golfer and
fountain. No golfer will be disappointed by this 18 hole
par 72 course. It has a few spectacular holes and several
noticeable mansions on the border.

Villamartin Golf Course in your itinerary is sure to make
you golf holiday exciting and special. The golf course here
is very fascinating with several water hazards,
strategically placed bunkers and other unique features. The
vegetation at Villamartin golf course comprises of bushes
and thick woods of olives, pines, rosebays cypresses, and
several other species. The greens accept the ball well and,
are not perfidious, but require cautious reading to come up
with a satisfactory score card.

The 14th and 17th holes are dicey with a natural ravine
which comes into play and demands concentration and skill
from the golfer to cross the hazards. There is an elevated
tee on the 17th hole, which is very intriguing. This a gem
of a finale as you drive over trees and the hole turns left
abruptly and the fairway looking like a line from your high
position. The toughest and the most challenging on the
course is the 303 metre par four 7. It is a downwards
dogleg right to a green and is surrounded by cork trees,
which can take some beating.

With its unusual design and unequalled setting, Villamartin
has earned its name in the top golf courses in Spain. The
vegetation here is very mature and offers a stunning
backdrop. It has been home to the Spanish Open as well as
other championships.. The course offers a circuit for
golfers of every skill level to enjoy and you have to make
use of all the clubs you have in your bag. The greens have
been designed very intelligently and they are maintained to
the highest standards. The course has an enjoyable
clubhouse to relax after your round and enjoy food,
beverage and good company.

The tournaments hosted at the professional level at
Villamartin include the Mediterranean Open Volvo PGA
European Tour, played in 1997. They also have hosted many
important amateur competitions sponsored by companies like
Audi Golf Tour, Mercedes Trophy and El Corte Ingl├ęs
Golf Tour.

Golf equipments can be hired here however, if you are
planning to play more than one round then it is better to
bring your own golf set as the rent can add up.
The famous Villamartin Plaza has a number of restaurants
and bars and is a perfect place for a fun night out.
Villamartin Golf Club is situated a little far from the
other golf courses in this region and you will need to hire
car, as public transport is not very reliable.
