The La Torre, designed by the world-renowned golfing architect Jack Nicklaus, is a highly regarded open parkland golf course located just a thirty-minute drive away from the Spanish city of Murcia. Players must not be lured into a false sense of security with the open layout as this golf course certainly bears a unique challenge to be enjoyed by all golfers on their golf holiday in Spain.
Despite its open layout, the La Torre offers its players an invigorating challenge with an impressive five hectors of bunkers and a strategic design that demands players use their shot selection carefully. The challenge does not end here; dense grass lines the bunkers to make it even more difficult if players shoot the ball wayward. Amateurs should not be intimidated by the La Torre as it is actually ideal for mid to high handicap golfers. Relatively flat throughout with little undulation, the La Torre is easily walkable, and a golf buggy is not always necessary.
The La Torre is certainly not a boring golf course and players will have every aspect of their game challenged throughout. Players are met with several dog legs, water hazards and a large number of bunkers as well as dense forest areas. The golf course was designed with all handicaps in mind with several tee off options available. Lower handicappers can take a few risks from the back tees and be rewarded, or alternatively there is the safe option for those not too confident in their own abilities. For players to build up their confidence prior to the game or to simply warm up, they can take advantage of the fantastic practice facilities at the La Torre golf course.

This par 68 golf course is one to be remembered as it contrasts in its style and layout in comparison to the other Nicklaus golf courses in the Murcia region. It is very reminiscent of the Pacific Coast golf courses located in the USA. These golf courses are renowned for their open layout with few trees, characterised by wide fairways, bunkers and lakes that come into play in the majority of holes. Furthermore, compared to the other golf courses in the region, the La Torre is not lengthy at just 6,774 yards long meaning that mid and high handicap players will not find it too intimidating. With several fantastic holes, strategically placed hazards and stunning sweeping views throughout, on this signature Jack Nicklaus design golf course you are set to have an unforgettable round of golf.
