The Alicante Golf Course

The Alicante Golf course is situated in a coastal region of Alicante called La Playa San Juan. Alicante golf is a par 72 golf course, designed by Severiano Ballesteros. This golf course was part of an Alicante Urbanization project that included housing, schools, shopping centers, hotels, a sports complex and a new fire station is next on the list.

The Alicante Golf course is made up of an area of 535.000 m2. It is 6.270 meters long with 3.125 meters on the front nine and the rest on the back nine. Severiano Ballesteros considered the course to be very attractive with a high degree of variation. There are large tee areas and quite wide fairways, with five large lakes and some archaeological remains which make it quite a testing course to play on.

Alicante Golf is situated just five minutes from the Mediterranean sea and is an ideal golf and beach holiday destination. The golf course was first opened in 1988 and is one of the few courses that can boast of having 6 par 3s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 5s. There are refreshments available as well as a well priced restaurant inside the clubhouse. The full golfing etiquette applies at Alicante Golf so make sure that you aren’t wearing jeans or you won’t be able to play.

Accommodation for playing at Alicante Golf is varied as you can choose from a whole range of hotels although the closest is the Hesperia hotel which has 5 stars and they will assist you with tee times. You could also choose a luxury rental villa that is situated on the Alicante Golf course. The public transport here is excellent or if you prefer there are also a number of English speaking taxi drivers that are used to doing golf course runs.

If you wish to come and play at Alicante Golf you would need to fly to Alicante Airport and then it’s just a 25 minute drive to the Playa San Juan. The taxi fare should cost about 30 Euro, car hire about 100 Euro a week or if you’re brave, the bus and tram could also take you to Alicante Golf for just 2 Euro.
