The Links course at the Alcaidesa Golf Resort was inaugurated in 1990 then remodeled in 1999 to improve its playability by widening fairways and ironing out some of the more severe undulations on the greens.
Links it may be named and marketed as but, in reality, it is an undulating cliff top seaside course that enjoys stunning views over the Mediterranean, the Straits of Gibraltar and the distant Atlas Mountains in North Africa.
And with the introduction of the Dave Thomas-designed Heathland course (and a spanking new clubhouse) in 2007, Alcaidesa now boasts two fine 18-hole layouts at a venue situated in one of the more progressive regions of southern Spain.
The course has an out and back routing with the first four holes heading towards the shoreline and the mile-long beach. Holes 5 to 14 then play out along the coast – where the wind, if it’s up, will stiffen the challenge – before the fairways head back inland to complete the round in front of the clubhouse.
