Alicante Golf itself was designed by Seve Ballesteros and opened in 1998. It’s an interesting design and some of the holes have unusual features. The 14th requires a second shot over some Roman ruins which is fairly unique. The 9th is a typical Seve designed risk and reward hole where those attempting to go for the green in 2 face the challenge of water going most of the way round the green. Being close to the airport its an ideal spot to play on either the first or last day of your holiday.
Bonalba golf is about 25 minutes away from Alicante and is another course requires good decision making as well as good shotmaking. There are 5 large lakes that come into play on several holes and good positioning off the tee is required to make the approach shot as easy as possible.
Font de Llop is set in wonderful surroundings largely unspoilt by any buildings around the course and offering great views of the distant mountains. Two contrasting nines with a front nine very typical Spanish in design with undulating fairways and well guarded greens compared to the back nine which is generally flatter and in a more traditional English style of design. A really good design and well worth a visit.

It’s a very well prepared course offering a variety of differently designed holes that require use of most of your clubs in the bag. It’s very close to the airport and is an ideal course to play on your way back to the airport.
