The course at Valle del Este is a top Almeria golf course and despite only being opened in 2002 it has earned itself a great reputation amongst the golfing elite and wider golf community.

The course is characterised by its wide fairways and deep bunkers and with raised tees surrounded by volcanic rock, golfers are treated to a very surreal experience. The Indiana Course at Desert Springs is another top Almeria golf course.

It is notable for being Europe’s first desert golf course and is similar in design to what you would expect to see in Arizona or California. The fairways are forgiving, however, hazards exist on each hole which can easily be brought into play by one misplaced shot.
