The only real links course in Spain with blind shots, pot bunkers, a couple of big dunes, sea breezes (warm ones admittedly) et al on the sandy soils bordering the Albufera lagoon. The course has an inland section too with holes that run through low-growing forest and add a nice contrast to the open, breezy holes along the coastline. Great fun and a great test. Clubhouse is part of the El Saler Parador that overlooks the course - so quite luxe!El Bosque Architect: R. Trent Jones (1975). 18 holes: 6,249m: par 72.
Not far west of Valencia a fine course, albeit quite hilly, through thick woodland in places plus some water and plenty of Trent Jones sand to negotiate. After a steady start, the drama builds as the round progresses.... El Bosque is one of Valencia's private Golf Clubs but welcomes visitors most days, engendering an exclusive feel in the glass fronted Clubhouse and around the course.Escorpion Architect: R. Kirby (1975). 18 (+9) holes: 6,081m: par 71.
An old orange grove that has been spruced-up by Mr. Kirby with the addition of big lakes, plenty of dog-legs and a few specimen palm trees creating an easy-going, rather pretty golf course around the large, white ex-hacienda Clubhouse. Predominantly flat land, with just a gentle rise here and there, so very easy walking. New 9-holes now in operation too.Meditteraneo Architect: R. Espinosa (1978). 18 holes: 6,384m: par 72.
The home of Sergio Garcia, whose father and family run this very impressive, if somewhat isolated, golf and Tennis Club. A splendid parkland course, beautifully maintained with some spectacular holes that ride around the hillsides of Castillon: well worth the effort to get here.La Galiana Architect: F. Rodriguez (2012). 18 holes: 6,201m: par 72.
A breathtaking, mountain course amidst stunning scenery with holes that you will not find anywhere else! Take a buggy and enjoy it for what it is - a unique round of golf!Oliva Nova Architect: S. Ballesteros (1997). 18 holes: 6,270m: par 72.
A resort course that winds its way around the big hotel and apartment complex. The course is flat with lines of palms planted to separate curving Fairways and ring the looming blue lagoons that encroach frequently on your play.La Sella Architect: J. de la Cuadra (1991). 18 (+9) holes: 6,289m: par 72.
A hilly stretch of woodland (particularly the holes across the road) makes for a testing course around the luxurious hotel on-site with narrow Fairways and some diminutive Greens. The new 9-holes are more open - at the moment...Foressos Architect: J. Gancedo (2007). 18 holes: 6,364m: par 72.
A nicely designed course on flat land with palm-lined Fairways and big water hazards. Sadly suffers slightly from its location (next to the main road and prison!) and from a lack of investment.
