This Jack Nicklaus designed course is a popular destination for golf tourists to Costa Blanca.

And, with a range of tees to choose from, it’s well-catered for short and booming hitters alike.
It’s a resort course that benefits from high-quality facilities and a welcoming atmosphere to go alongside the quality golf, making it an ideal venue to add to your itinerary. And, with Benidorm just up the road, and Alicante airport a short drive away, Villaitana is perfectly located.
It may have only opened in 2001, but La Finca’s reputation has grown quickly, becoming one of THE destination golf courses in Costa Blanca. A sister venue to Las Ramblas and Villaitana, the course offers beauty, charm and challenge in equal measure.
There’s no shortage of water in play and a range of greens from sprawling wide to narrow and tight; ensuring you’re always thinking about your approach play.

Another huge favourite for those heading to Costa Blanca for their golf holiday. Las Colinas is ideally located close to Alicante and the airport, so a great place to start or end your golf tour around the region. It's a course that grows in popularity by the year, as evidenced by the increasing number of hotels, villas and apartments that have sprung up in the proximity over the past decade.
But it’s the blend of stunning natural landscape with well-crafted course design offering 18 spectacular holes, that makes this such an appealing attraction. Wide fairways that offer hidden hazards, undulating greens that test the touch and the general sense that you are walking a course of championship quality is the reason so many add Las Colinas to their schedule when heading to Spain.
Enduringly popular, golfers keep returning to Villamartin year after year thanks to its inviting charm, gently challenging layout and well-tended landscape.
The oldest course in Costa Blanca, Villamartin is in the southern part of the region and an ideal course for those staying in and around the Murcia area. Relatively flat it makes for a pleasant day out without being overly taxing and can make for a refreshing society-style day that’s perfect when you have a mix of age groups or handicaps in your party.
A drive south along the coast from Valencia, El Saler has built a reputation among golf tourists as a course with a high-quality layout.
The natural environment plays a major part in its popularity, combing the spectacular flora and fauna found in the Albufera Nature Reserve with views across the shimmering Mediterranean waters.
It’s a joy to experience as you plot your round through tree-lined fairways, without ever feeling daunted by the challenge.
One of the regions’ shorter premier courses, don’t be fooled into thinking this is a walk in the park. Designed to make you think, it’s one for the plotters rather than the boomers and makes for an intriguing, enjoyable day’s golf.
Sister to the increasingly popular El SalerLa Finca, it offers an ideal complement and is a regular addition to golf holiday itineraries.
