Alicante Golf is on the Mediterranean coast, next to the spectacular San Juan beach and only 5 minutes from the centre of Alicante.A green haven set in a residential area, the course features wide fairways lined with thousands of trees. The top priorities in maintaining the course are caring for the environment and saving water, making it the first golf course in Spain to be awarded both of the most prestigious environmental quality standard certificates:ISO-14.001 and the Q-Plus certificate.
Severiano Ballesteros designed this fantastic 72-par course that includes six par-three holes, six par-four holes and six par-five holes, meaning that no two consecutive holes are played with the same par in any one round. This format makes play more varied and entertaining and gives golfers many more chances of scoring a birdie.Seve also designed 5 large lakes affecting 12 of the 18 holes, resulting in an attractive and challenging course for golfers of all abilities.
Alicante Golf is regarded as one of the best designed and maintained in the whole of Spain, a reputation that was further consolidated following a major 5-year overhaul of its greens between 2004 and 2008. This costly project involved rebuilding the course's 18 greens, improving both their design and other aspects such as planting, watering, drainage, landscaping and shape.Following these renovations, the course now has 18 first-class greens, including the new green at hole 18, providing a stunningly dramatic finale to a round of golf and visible from the rooms in the Husa Alicante Golf Hotel.
Other great features of the course are the practice area, with a natural grass driving range and a fully-equipped short game area, plus the ruins of a Roman villa dating back to the 1st century BC at Hole 14. The ruins came to light during building work on the course and the ball has to clear them to get to the green.
