Due to the unique climate on the coast, thousands of golfers come from Northern Europe, especially Germany. Scandinavia and England to this region in order to play throughout the year their favorite sport in glorious weather.

  • La Sella Golf Club: Located on the slopes of a mountain, the La Sella Golf is not a particularly tiring course. It lies next to Montgó Natural Park, and is surrounded by Mediterranean woodland and hills. Pine trees, orange trees, olives and almonds add colour to the course and, although they are pretty to look at, will cause big problems for less accurate players.

    The course has 18 holes and a par of 72. It is varied and thought provoking, and moderate in length and, if you know how to use all of your clubs, you will be able to get a good result. The design of the courses means it is suitable for players of all levels, with the difficulty apparent at the tees. The designer, with the expert help of José María Olazábal, designed the course in such a way that if you miss the green, you will need all the virtuosity of the Spanish Champion to save the par...


  • Oliva Nova Golf Club: The Oliva Nova golf course is one of the most recent creations of Seve Ballesteros. It is on the southernmost point of the coastline of Valencia and consists of an 18-hole course which is superbly maintained and has an extremely varied layout, so you will find yourself playing a wide variety of shots.

    There are great opportunities for players of all kinds as there are short, medium and long holes. The course has a par of 72 and is made up of four par-3's, four par-5's and ten par-4's running over gently undulating terrain which is easy to walk round and is shaded by countless trees. It tends to take about four hours to play.

    Water, with all of its attendant dangers, is a constant feature of the course as it is present on all of the holes except the 2nd, 13th and 14th, and there are 8 strategically located lakes. On the par-4 5th, if you choose the right club and put some power into the shot you could reach the green and get the eagle which all golfers dream about, or even the mythical albatross. In short, it's a course on which the right choice of club and playing strategy is vital on every shot!!!!

  • Javea Golf Club: This golf course, designed and created by Francisco Moreno, is situated 90 kilometres from Alicante on the way to Valencia, and sheltered from the wind by Cape San Antonio, the course has a perfect microclimate all the year round, and is located in a wonderful natural setting, surrounded by pinewoods.

    The round is very attractive, with gentle slopes, excellently maintained greens, and wide fairways flanked by pine trees and orange trees. It is a 9-hole round but although it is not very long it is certainly difficult, as it is plagued by bunkers nearly all the way along - 34 in total.
