Las Ramblas Golf Course
This stunning course is the shortest of courses, but without doubt the most challenging, as it requires accuracy and thought at each hole. High trees, natural fairways and ravines feature strongly in this memorable course. The ninth hole, a par 4 with teeshot over a lake, is pretty as a picture. A golf and nature experience above average!

This exclusive development is about 5 km from the coast where you can enjoy fine sandy beaches and all year round good weather (this is one of the driest area in Spain). The area is still under development, but the golf course is established and very well maintained. There are two other golf courses within 5 minutes of Las Ramblas - Villamartin Golf club (which hosted the 1994 Mediterranean Open) and Campoamor Golf club, but Las Ramblas is certainly the most challenging. The golf clubhouse is just a short walk from the apartment where a range of lunches and drinks can be enjoyed in the air-conditioned bar or out on the terrace. Local shops and supermarkets are just a 5 minute drive away as are a very wide range of coastal restaurants and nightclubs. The plaza at Villamartin offers a wide range of shops and restaurants and provides a relaxed and tranquil setting for enjoying a meal. The new clubhouse, bar and restaurant at Campoamor is a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk away.

Las Ramblas is an 18 hole course, set in beautiful hilly countryside with a excellent bar/restaurant on site. As an alternative the "Las Ramblas" course offers an excellent round of golf for the experienced golfer, and it has been said that it is the most challenging of all courses in the area, but we are sure you would like to determine this for yourselves. Take plenty of balls. You'll need them!
