I'm looking for a little help as I'm out with a few friends playing gold at the end of June. I've booked to play Condado and Elle Valle which I really enjoy but I'm not sure about any other courses locally and how they compare. Can anyone offer any recommendations

Thanks in advance

Daren

Try "ClubMurcia" who I used recently and who seemed to give us some great deals.  Depends how long you want to travel to a course and budget but I would recommend the following:

 

Aguilon which is about 50-60 mins away but really picturesque and challenging.

Las Colinas which is about 45-50 mins away, a but pricey but top notch.

Lorca is about 40 mins away and again really challenging but well worth it.

 

Can't fault any of above and would have to say Aguilon and Lorca were great value for money; around 35 euros a head including buggy (in May).  ClubMurcia is a great website and got us some superb deals at above courses.

Las Colinas sounds good but I thought it was a little further away I.e 1 hour 15+

 How far is it and what the best route?

Las Colinas is between San Miguel del Salinas and Campoamor...

Not sure how far from you, but well worth the extra drive, top notch course, bit pricier but 'Clubmurcia' are offering deals on early morning tee time or twilight deals..

Just booked a twilight deal myself at end of July, 4pm tee, but plenty of light to finish the round then....

Desert Springs is a good course and reasonably priced as well. Takes about an hour from Condado. I would also recommend Saurines De la Torre..Book mine through www.ccgt.co.uk

The other course I thought we might try was Lorca which I hear is quite a nice course to play and not far.

How about Roda Golf? I'm biased as I have an apartment there, but I don't play golf.

But everyone I know who plays the course loves it.

There are also deals via ClubMurcia or via the courses own website too - especially on twilight deals at 4pm.

And yes, there is plenty enough light to play up o about 8:30 - 9pm

Agree with a lot of the comments above.

Used clubmurcia many times and they've always been reliable and the cheapest way to pick up good deals with buggies.

Just got back from Spain and played Alhama and El Valle.  Both are great courses but I'd say right now that the greens need another couple of weeks to recover from hollow tining as still a bit sandy and not as fast and true as normal. I only say this as I know how good they are when they are in top condition and it obviously can't be helped that they have just been hollow tined - just bad timing on my part.  Good to see the Alhama lakes all full again (with the exception of holes 4 & 5)

Las Colinas was immense last August.  Would play that every golf holiday given the opportunity.  Yes its a bit more pricey but if you can make the early / twilight tees through clubmurcia, it starts to get very reasonable.

Aguilon is a stunning course but very challenging.  A lot of tight fairways with ravines everywhere so take plenty of balls if you are a high handicapper.  A buggy is also a must, as there is no way you would want to walk it, especially in the heat, with some long distances between holes.

Lorca is another course with quite a few ravines to take on.  I wouldn't say its as hard as Aguilon but its still a very good course and closer than most.  Again they have good deals through clubmurcia.  I've played it three times and the last time (October last year) the tee boxes were in an awful state and needed a good cut.  Only a minor gripe as would much rather fairways and greens in good shape and may have just been a one off as previous rounds had been fine.

Quite often play Hacienda de Alamo just because it's the closest to visit from Alhama.  Reasonable prices on clubmurcia.  A long course and having played recently, the greens and fairways were in good shape.

Roda is a good course - probably one of the easier ones for the higher handicapper as quite open.  Enjoyed the island green signature hole!

Played some of the others a few years back...

La Peraleja - had lightning greens but the fairways weren't in the greatest condition when I played which put me off going back.

Altoreal - Different to all the other courses as its in the middle of murcia and much more like a park course in the UK, with plenty of trees.  Remember it being very busy when we went, but had no complaints other than that.

La Serena - If you like the challenge of water then this could be one for you with 16 of the 18 holes having water involved.

Corvera - found it a bit boring to be honest but thats only my personal opinion!  Another cheap one through clubmurcia.

 

Of all the courses I've mentioned and given the choice, I'd play Alhama, Las Colinas, El Valle or Aguilon every time !  But yet to play La Torre, Saurines, Mar Menor or any of La Manga's which are still on my list to tick off!!

Cheers
