Spannender Platz,1.9 Löcher im Wald anspruchsvoll angelegt,2.9 im offenen Gelände. Konditionell sehr fordernd. Die Terrasse bietet einen fantastischen Blick auf Portocolom und das Meer, sehr feine Küche.

Freundlicher Empfang, Bag entgegengenommen und zusammen mit Trolly bereitgestellt. Platz ist in gutem Zustand und auch die Greens, welche aber etwas langsam sind. Der Platz liegt im Am- oder Abflugbereich des Flughafens, dies stört aber nicht. Die Greens werden meistens sehr gut von Bunkern geschützt. Präzises Eisenspiel hilft. Oft kann der Wind etwas ins Spiel kommen. Das Clubhaus mit dem Restaurant darf mit gutem Gewissen besucht werden. Fazit: Noch immer einer der Topplätze auf Mallorca.

Anlässlich einer Trainingswoche bei Tim Holroyd mit dem Logicalgolf System eine schöne Abschluss-Runde gespielt. Die Trainingsmöglichkeiten sind fantastisch,2 grosse Übungsgreen,2 Approach Zonen (kurze und längere Annäherungen), Drivingrange mit diversen Anspielmöglichkeiten. Der Platz ist in hervorragendem Zustand, mit seinem fairen, aber anspruchsvollem Layout bietet er für alle Handicaps ein tolles Golf Erlebnis. Die Greens sind z.Z. etwas langsam, werden sicher im laufe der Zeit wieder das gewohnte Niveau erreichen. Nach einem leckeren Essen auf der Terrasse alles in allem ein toller Golftag genossen.

The Course and the Greens are in very good conditions. The Staff is friendly and helpful. With the 4 sets of tee boxes you can enjoy your round "resort style" or from the back white tees it is very challenging(my son with HCP 11,3 had a lot of fun). Due to the 12min between the teetimes you never have the feeling the course is crowded.

Empfang war freundlich und die Abwicklung schnell. Carts (geht nicht ohne) standen bereit. Die Teeboxen sind teils in einem schlechten Zustand. Die Fairways sind ok aber gibt einige bessere auf der Insel. Eventuell wäre es besser mit den Carts nicht darauf zu fahren oder die 90grad Regel anzuwenden. Die Greens waren sehr gepflegt und saftig grün. Etwas langsam aber. Es gab einige Stellen mit „ground under repair“. Die Umgebung ist nicht besonders. Es stehen viele Häuser und Villen um den Platz und es muss mehrmals die Strasse überquert werden. Der Charme fehlt diesem Platz. Das Clubhaus war in Ordnung mit freundlichem Service.

Golf Valle del Este Wetterbedingt fuhren wir von Balerma nach Motril und Granada samt Sightseeing nach Córdoba. Golf frei. Doch dann führte uns die Rückfahrt durch den Nationalpark Sierra Nevada ueber Guadix nach Tabernas. Hier wurden unzählige Italowestern gedreht. Tolle Landschaft U nach einem Stopp auf einem super schoenem Womo Stellplatz 16,00 inkl WLAN, Strom etc gings ca 40km nach Valle del Este. Ein toller super gepflegter Platz. Wunderschön. Langsame Gruens und Beinarbeit ist gefragt. 4 Stunden zu Zweit mit E Trolleys,4 Baelle weniger und nach 17000 Schritten haben wir im Hoyos 19 Restaurant neben dem Hotel super und preiswert gegessen. FAZIT immer wieder gerne unweit der A7.

I played lately a tournament on yellow and green courses. I found a nightmare starting a round on the yellow course, since the first 3 holes are quite intense, and a bit weird, very narrow, very easy to loose balls, almost imposible to play the hole if you miss the fairway, etc. On top of that, first and third holes are par 5 and very strange indeed. First hole has a blind shot to green almost no matter where you place the ball for third shot (totally blind for second shot), and the green is very narrow and well protected. It is basically a question of taking a lip of faith in finding the ball when you get close to the green. Third hole is commonly called Juana la Loca (crazy Juana, after a famous Spanish queen of the late Middle Ages). First shot is into a winding narrow fairway that makes balls slide to the left, where there is a ravine that will make your ball disappear if it is not out of bounds. But to the right there is a hump where almost no ball is to be found and there is also OB. If by chance you hit the fairway, you will find almost the same troubles on the second shot; if going for the green, it is all up hill over a couple of tall trees on the boundary of OB, and if laying up it is also blind, but a bit wider. These three holes are a pitty, because after them, the rest of the course is quite playable, quite similar to the style of the green one: short holes, mostly narrow but playable, fun for short hiters that will find here options to hit shorter irons to green than in most courses, and longer hiters will have to think twice almost every hole, with different ways to play them. And some holes are quite nice indeed in this yellow course after the first 3. For example, the fifth hole, a short fun par 5 quite open, since it is located on the top of a cliff over the town and coast, so there are no houses on that side (this is also a feature of this course: houses all around it). So if you survive those first holes (I did not), the last 6 of yellow course are a good introduction to the green one, with all those characteristics I just stated. The main difference of this green course to those last 6 of the yellow one will be green course seemed to me a little bit wider or less tense. I played driver on every par 4 and 5 (a couple of tee shots a bit tense) and did not find too much trouble. Probably the last 3 holes are the best ones here. 7th has a difficult tee shot over a dogleg, if you do not want to leave you a long iron to a narrow green way up hill, well protected with a tree and bunkers. Trees in the middle of the fairway also bother. 8th is a reacheable par 5 but well protected by a dogleg full of trees around the fairway. 9th is a long par 4 surrounded by tall nice trees, no houses around to make a difference. Training ground is quite handy and complete. Course and training ground were in reasonable shape, greens way too slow. Bunkers were great. Due to covid pandemic could not enjoy club house or other services, but I was here a couple of years ago and I found those facilities quite nice, in particular the terrace. Staff was really kind.
