I have a holiday home in cuevas del almanzora, home to desert springs golf and country club also 15 minutes from val de este golf club, the area is predominantly spanish, the people fabulously friendly and helpful, and prices cheap as chips, a beer or glass of wine and tappas for 2 euro, driest part of spain and overall best average monthly temperatures in the whole of europe, give the area a looking at, you can fly to either Murcia or almeria airports, also the new Carvera airport opens early 2012.
The area is very much agricultural, the benefit being is it is not commerialised, the fruit and veg is ridiculously cheap and the freshest i have ever tasted.
Hope you find what you are looking for. I have tried to post links for the golf courses but eye on spain won't allow me to do it, google the places mentioned i am sure you will be impressed
For a quick fact finding visit there is a small hotel in the village called hostal lucero, cheap and very nice.
