Las Colinas golf course extends across the valley between the hills, blends naturally into the landscape. The width of its fairways, the design of its extensive undulating greens, and the numerous tees at each hole give it great versatility and could be suitable for professional competitions, also offering for any player enjoyable and challenging game. It‘s very new course, opened in just 2011 (mention in table on club house), and looks very good maintained. My opinion it is clear resort style championship golf course with wide fairways, big greens and nice surroundings. I was played in early December of 2019 from white tee. 18 holes, PAR 71 course is not very complicated, but challenging for experienced players. Accuracy and distance are keys as you navigate the fairways. The biggest challange is distance in several holes like 1st par 4, 2nd par 4 (with a narrow exit from the white tee in additional), 11th par 5 (lined by bunkers in additional) & 17th par 3 (was more than 200 meters from white tees). Actually also was windy day and was bit difficult to predict ball landing place right as was played first time. Condition and maintence was in very high level. Nice and comfortable to play. One important thing is huge distance between several holes. We was with buggie and it let to survive us. One of my friend decided take a trolley… it was even fun watching him stand up barely breathing on the tee off after long way to uphill So my big recomendation for first time take a buggie.
Concerning prices it is not cheapest golf courses in Mursia region (you can use twilight offer to save money), but worth all paid moneys! Agreed that is one of the best courses in region and TOP10 in Spain. Service is good, clubhouse nice and new, well equipment. Restaurant wide with very comfortable sitting places and tasty beer as well.
As every golf course rating is always a subject with a lot of subjectivity, depending on various criteria and personal point of view to importance things, my personal opinion depends on following criteria: course complexity or challenging, fields condition (especially greens & fairways), service (only what you can get: buggie, club rent, condition of clubs, the amount of choice and etc. except staff and other subjective things that depends on your or staff mood), surrounding views or pleasure to the eyes and definitely value for the price. All criteries will be rating from 1 to 5 stars. My priority is challenging and value for price criterias. Las Colinas gets:
1. Challenging - 3*+
2. Condition - 5*+
3. Service - 5*
4. Surroundings - 4*+
5. Value for the price - 5*
Definitelly will be back next year.
