Almenara Golf Course
Located onsite at Hotel Almenara, this magnificent parkland course offers three excellent loops of nine. Each course is superbly maintained and provides narrow rolling fairways with fast greens to create a challenging test of course management. The tightest of the three is Los Pinos (Pines), with tree-lined fairways taking much of the limelight. Los Lagos (Lakes) has a series of water hazards, and finally Los Alcornoques (Corn Oaks) which hosts some the most dramatic holes on the course.
