If you are planning a golf trip to Spain’s Costa Blanca region or just visiting the area on holiday, playing Las Colinas must be on the itinerary.
Situated a region where there are plenty of top course to choose from, Las Colinas stands out above the crowd and oozes quality – both on and off the course.
Las Colinas Golf Club Review:
Boasting an impressive and immaculate clubhouse, golf academy and driving range, Las Colinas has that air of class about it and has easy access from Alicante and around the region.
Las Colinas stages European Tour Qualifying events, yet offers tee times at very reasonable prices, ranging from around €50-80. You will, however, want to add a buggy to that with some lengthy drives to tee boxes.
The course itself is a par-71 Championship course with the 6581-yard test designed by the renowned Cabell B. Robinson and managed by the Troon Golf group.
It sweeps across the valley and around the complex of luxury villas and properties on site, and despite some wide fairways poses serious tests with well-placed bunkers, undulating greens and the occasional splash of water to contend with.
Take in the view from the par-5 3rd, where water is in play, and enjoy the short yet tricky par-3 7th, which plays less than 100 yards from an elevated tee to a green surrounded by trees and requires perfect clubbing.
The back nine interestingly contains three par-3s, three par-4s and three par-5s with the pick of them 16 and 18. Only the 17th free of water in the closing six holes.
The 16th is a long par-4 with water a big danger from the tee shot, while the closing par-5 is a gem with a small lake situated short of the green, which sits right in front of the clubhouse.
