Alicante Golf Club was designed by Steve Ballesteros and consists of six par-3s, six par-4s and six par-5s which means that there is a real variety in layout as well as length for each hole. Since the course opened in 1998, there have been additions to the course in the way of artificial lakes and rivers which have increased the difficulty of the course. The course isn’t overly difficult but isn’t an easy round of golf by any stretch of the imagination and you must play strategically if you hope to leave with a good scorecard!

Roda Golf is situated in Murcia and can offer you a large selection of apartments and villas to rent and all of the accommodation is within walking distance of the resort’s fantastic 18-hole golf course.

All of the apartments are well-equipped with a fully-fitted kitchen and a seating area with a TV as well as a balcony or terrace. There is a huge, luxurious clubhouse which boasts free Wi-Fi, an award-winning restaurant and a bar. Just five minutes away is Los Alcazares where you can find a supermarket, bars and restaurants.

Roda Golf Course is just a few minutes’ walk from any of the apartments and villas within the resort and was designed by Dave Thomas. The course is challenging with many water and sand hazards but there is no heavy rough and there are very few trees for you to watch out for which makes this a nice holiday golf course for golfers of all abilities. This is a brilliant resort with everything that you could need in order to have the perfect golf escape…
