The course, which is not overly long, has a traditional structure and theme. Accuracy off the tee is a must as you thread your way to the green avoiding clusters of bunkers, desert areas and the aforementioned water hazards.
La Serena Golf has a large Club House providing all facilities and services including changing rooms, pro-shop, caddy master and storage facilities for clients’ use, along with a restaurant and bar area, which overlooks both the Mar Menor and the course itself. You will also find here a practice area, chipping area and a putting green and buggy hire is available if you require this service.
The Serena Golf course is, following professional and amateur players consensus, arguably the Murcia Region’s toughest course. Built in Florida style being flat, with lots of bunkers and water in play on nearly all the holes and when the wind blows in from the East, this is a challenge to anyone who plays here. The course has been well designed with every hole requiring strategic thought and attention. The greens are well proportioned and the Clubhouse is most hospitable and welcoming.
