Whilst this is a 'nice' course - I am surprised it is so much higher than Torrequebrada. It is very open - which helps - but it is very long - hitting the greens in regulation is a tough ask at times becuase the greens are also pretty small for a resort course. It was a pleasure to play and the buggies were allowed on the fairways and had GPS - although it was at times a little inconsistent with its estimations! Also the 'pro tip' for each hole was 'A Narrow Drive' - which is not often the case on the course to be honest. The closing hole is a lovely sweeping uphill par 4 to the clubhouse and in Sept the swallows are swooping low across the fairway in a quite spectacular sight of acrobatics. Its a nice course but fairly innocuous compared to the other two we played. The fairways and surrounds of the green were also very wet and to be honest 'pick and place' would not have been unexpected - they must have been watering the place for a day before we arrived. Lovely little clubhouse with loads of charm.
