Course Review and Comments

We played this course in the beginning of september 2013. We had our tee time reserved at 08.00. Arriving at the golf club at 07.40 the reception was still closed. After opening at 07.50 we were told that the payment of the intermediary through which we booked our greenfee could not be validated. After waiting for over 1.5 hours in the office, without receiving any drink or whatsoever, Lo Romero found out that they made a mistake in the validation process, and that there was no problem. Due to the delay our two-ball tee time of 08.00 was now switched for a three-ball tee time of 09.30 just inbetween two fourballs. Where we normally are able to finish a round in 4 hours, now our round took 5 hours.
The terrible service level of the staff could not be compensated by the facilities of the course, which are poor (small ugly clubhouse, poor restaurant & menu, dirty toilets, poor dressroom facilities). The course is in pretty good shape, but the holes show little variation. The speed of the greens is quite good but the greens are in poor condition (a lot of unrepaired pitchmarks). Don't count on spectacular views or great surroundings on this course. As there are many spectacular courses with perfect service in the neighboorhoud, we recommend avoiding this course!

    Good value for money golf course close to Torrevieja. First two holes are a bit narrow, after that it opens up. Good variety of holes where you will score well if you hit it straight. Hole 18 the sign ... more»
