Owner description: Renowned architect, Jose "Pepe" Gancedo, six-time spanish Champion, designed the course by following the lay of the land, using the natural terrain to provide a route easily remembered long after the player finishes. Our trademark features are strategically-placed trees, bunkers, mounds and gently rolling terrain with well-defined and generous fairways without forgetting an unrelenting wind. The utilization of four sets of tees provides low-handicapped golfers with a course of great challenge, while beginners and intermediate players can continually improve their game in a player-friendly environment.

“Way Over Priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Cart rental is $65 EACH and club rental is $47 EACH. Carts are old, dirty, Clubs are mismatched, bags dirty and torn. Clubhouse is dingy, restrooms have no soap dispenser, management poor. Course is very ordinary, no water on course, beverage cart never stopped. BIG waste of money.

“Well maintained - would be a three star public course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Well maintained, pretty layout, greens in great shape. They did up the resort up-charge effective January 1, which was irritating. Golf Carts are pretty beat-up but grlady exchanged if yours doesn't function well. Not worth the full green fees if you were paying full price, but as a resort throw in paying only cart fees, its playable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The course was boring to play. The shuttle from the hotel that went to the course ran too infrequently

“nice greens, bad buggies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Flat golf course with fast greens. 27 holes, wide fairways with a lot of trees around. If you have price included in your hotel charge and you pay only USD40 for buggy it worth for it. Problematic are buggies and rented clubs. We played there three times and always buggy was with some defect. One did not break, one did not turn and one started with jumping only. Rented clubs had best times years ago.
