Owner description: Lauro 27 Golf can be found in the middle of beautiful pure nature in spectacular surroundings. The course consists of 27 holes that can be played in three different combinations, all par 72. From the beginning the design and function of the course has been based on respecting the nature and the environment that surrounds it by not only saving and caring for the already existing trees but also by planting thousands of new trees, most of them indigenous Andalusian species. In Lauro Golf the nature is everywhere. Within the whole complex the direct contact with the nature is constant and whether you are playing golf, living in the residences or just enjoying a stroll in the surroundings you can see that we are not the only visitors at Lauro Golf. You can often see rabbits, ducks, partridges, herons and even eagles on and around the golf course, our friendly neighbours who are enjoying the micro-climate of the course created by the thousands of trees and the fourteen lakes of the golf c

The first thing to surprise us at Lauro was starting at hole 19 ...no, not the bar! This is a 27 hole course so our first nine included 19 to 27 and then we played the first nine. Before starting we did get a friendly piece of advice from the steward. Watch your belongings at some points on the course where apparently intruders have nipped in and stolen from golfers' buggies.
We were indeed using buggies, about twenty of us, so we were surprised to find ourselves setting out behind about the same number of golfers on foot and pulling caddies. Apart from the heat, they must really have suffered on some of the hills. The result was that it took us over 5 hours to complete the 18 holes.
Another surprise was the lack of directions at some green-to-tee positions. We got lost a couple of times and had to make lengthy detours in our search for the following tee.
The course itself is a good challenge and interesting to play. The sand in the bunkers could do with some refinement. The fairways are broad enough to hit comfortably, but you have to face occasional blind tee shots over wild vegetation. Certainly makes it interesting.
Our final hole (9) is a real challenge with a substantial area of water to clear in front of the green. I imagine it has made or broken many a round of golf here.
I was fascinated by the texture of the grass on the greens. I had often listened to the commentators on SKY talking about the nap of the grass on greens. Lauro presents you with this challenge. You have to look carefully at the green before putting. With the nap, your ball will fly. Against the nap, your ball will pull up suddenly.
After your round you can enjoy a drink and food at the open air restaurant. It was just amazing to see half of a tasty b/b chicken turned out with chips for just €6.00.
Try Lauro; just don't get caught behind walkers and don't get lost. It's a course worth booking.
