The course is a par 71 and was designed by Dave Thomas and Jorge Soler with undulating greens and many strategically placed bunkers which can cause for this course to pose a challenge to golfers of all abilities. The course only opened in 2011 which means that it is considered to be relatively new to the area, but it has a blossoming reputation due to the quality of the course and the quality of the standard of service that you receive whilst at the golf club. The club also boasts a very special position as not only is it easily accessible from local areas, but it is the only golf course in Murcia that runs alongside at Protected Natural Park.
