Designed by Seve Ballesteros in 1998, the course is quite flat. It runs through a residential complex which is near the beach of Playa de San Juan in Alicante. Large trees overlook the wide fairways as the course becomes increasingly more difficult as the round goes on.
On the shores of the Mediterranean is Alicante Golf, located on the spectacular San Juan beach just 5 minutes from the centre of Alicante. Set out like a green lung in the residential area, the course has wide holes planted with thousands of trees and where care for the environment and savings in water consumption are priority aspects, which has won it the honour of being the first course in Europe to jointly obtain the two most prestigious environmental quality certificates: ISO-14.001 and Q-Plus.
Severiano Ballesteros designed the spectacular par 72 with a singular layout of 6 par 3, 6 par 4 and six par 5, which means that you never play two consecutive holes with the same par on the same round, an option which makes the game much more varied and amusing and gives many opportunities for a birdie. Seve designed 5 large lakes affecting 12 of the 18 holes. All of which supposes an attractive challenge for golfers of all levels.
Alicante Golf is considered one of the courses with the best maintenance and design of the whole of Spain, a reputation enhanced by the performance of the important and costly green reconstruction project which lasted 5 years between 2004 and 2008, in which the course’s 18 greens were rebuilt to improve the design and the agricultural aspects of watering, drainage, landscaping and moulding. Since these reformations, the course has had 18 true luxury greens, and especially the new green on the 18th hole, which has given the course its spectacular and dramatic end that can be seen from the rooms of the Hotel Alicante Golf.
Another of the best appreciated aspects of the course is its practice area, with a driving range of natural grass and a very complete short play area, as well as the ruins of a Roman villa from the first century BC on the 14th hole. These appeared during the construction of the course and you have to drive over them to reach the green.
Alicante Golf is a noble course, with wide fairways and no blind strokes. The speed of the greens, the true star feature of the course, is at competition level and they come in an impressive state. Alicante Golf can be considered an oasis amidst the city, a challenge for the game and a feast for the eyes.
