Desert Springs Golf Course, Almeria
Desert Springs Golf Course is a little bit of Arizona in Spain as it is Europe’s only true desert style golf course. Course Architect Peter Mcevoy has designed a course that offers something to players of all abilities. The fairways are generous enabling most golfers to get away from the tee reasonably easily. From there however he has used all the local natural features to present a challenge to test the form of all the players. The holes are framed by cacti, dry river beds and rocks and it’s a testament to the designers skill that he has managed to make any sort of golf course never mind a very good one from such unpromising terrain. The bright green fairways make a striking contrast to the surrounding areas.
