Hacienda del Alamo
Golf Course in Murcia
Designed by Dave Thomas Hacienda del Alamo will entertain all levels of golfers with its lakes waterfalls and wide fairways. Having the longest layout in Spain it is also one of the longest and widest courses in Europe, with eight lakes and 84 bunkers that will provide a challenge for all standards of golfers. There are no limits. That is to say, the golf course was designed with no restrictions on space, as if nothing else existed and then the houses were added so there would be plenty of breathing room with broad open spaces. The golf course is wide, with long holes, spacious, and with many lakes, at the same time; it has some very well-planned obstacles. The first hole opens with a challenging tee shot, where two well placed bunkers patrol either side of the fairway. But like many of the holes at Hacienda del Alamo, the landing areas are generous and players are unlikely to get into real trouble off the tee. There are several holes where water comes into play especially on the third, tenth and twelfth with intimidating lakes, which have to be navigated.
