Roda Golf Course
The Roda Golf Course is widely considered to be amongst some of the must-play golf courses in Murcia. A classic Dave Thomas golf design, players are guaranteed to have an excellent round of golf here. This fantastic golf course is located just a mile from the nearby beach resort of Los Alcazares and five minutes away from Murcia Airport meaning it is perfectly situated for all golfers in the area.
This par 72, 18-hole parkland golf course is an essential feature of any golf holiday in Murcia. The Dave Thomas design team made a conscious effort to adopt most of the landscape’s natural features in their creation of this fantastic golf course. The greens here are characterised by the undulating terrain as well as several strategically placed bunkers. Many of the holes here are to be played around three huge lakes. The Roda Golf Course is undeniably a challenging golf course, and when the sea breeze comes into play it is only intensified. However, as the golf course is relatively flat, it is walkable and golf buggies are not always necessary. Even though the golf course is flat, by no means is it boring!
Despite an exciting array of challenges and hazards along the way, Dave Thomas ensured that the Roda Golf Course could be played and appreciated by golfers of all skill and ability; there is no heavy rough and there are just a few trees to create an excellent holiday golf course. However, the golf course does demand accuracy when it comes to putting due to the slippery putting areas. The greens measure out to just under 11,000 square metres, purposely designed to meet USGA standards so that the Roda Golf Course can host tournaments in the future.

The signature hole at the Roda Golf Course includes the par 3, 7th hole. This is without a doubt the most scenic hole across the course and one of the most difficult despite measuring just 174 metres long. The green consists of an island surrounded by water that demands a medium or short iron in order to score well. This is not the only hole at the Roda Golf Course where water comes into play; the 12th, 13th, 16th and 18th holes on the back nine are all played around a water hazard.
Across the Roda Golf Course, players can admire its beautiful landscape filled with acres of natural fauna and flora. There are acres and acres filled with Mediterranean shrubs and trees to create a truly natural character for the golf course.
