Consistently kept in excellent condition throughout the year, the Las Ramblas is a very playable golf course and attracts golfers with its superb views of the Mediterranean Sea that can be admired from the elevated tees. Club selection is key here, as the course requires accuracy as you play over ravines and onto some tight fairways; the Las Ramblas truly is the ideal golf course to perfect those iron strikes. Gancedo has been complimented time and time again for creating such a fantastic golf course on a tricky terrain. However, a buggy is typically recommended for this course as it could be considered fairly hilly by some.
Amateurs may struggle with the complex layout at the Las Ramblas, dotted with deep ravines, rocky canyons, dense forestry and a large lake. Narrow greens simply intensify the challenge. Higher handicappers should not be put off from playing a round here as it was designed for golfers to have fun, not necessarily to score high!
Widely considered to be the most challenging hole at the Las Ramblas is the par three 14th hole. The entirety of the hole is lined with trees awaiting to capture all wayward shots that fall short of the tiny green. Players must take extra care when manoeuvring across the deep gorge running across the width of this hole as once they fall in, all chances of a decent scorecard are lost.
