Summer 2013 - What's of interest this Low Season in Murcia?

 

The summer months are historically very popular not least because of the favourable weather but also because the rates and offers are particular attractive at this time of year. So what has been grabbing the attention of players this season?.

The biggest news this summer is the return of La Serena Golf Resort to its former glory. It’s hard to imagine that this time last year the course was suffering with poor Greens and a loss of confidence in players. 12 months on and the course is getting very close to the conditions players had become used to 5 or 6 years ago. Reservations have significantly increased and demand for memberships has never been higher. Green Fee Rates start from only 32 euro after 2:30 and the Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar offer an excellent choice of Food & Drink before and after your Round. Located close to Murcia San Javier Airport and the Beaches of the Mar Menor, this is an ideal venue for those trying to combine Golf with a family holiday.

The La Manga Club Golf Resort has remainded the top resort in the region for 30 years. This summer, players can enjoy a Round from at little as 45 euro on the West Course or 50 euro on the North and South Courses. Demand is always high so please book early to avoid disappointment. Given the size of the resort there is plenty of alternative activities for the family.

Corvera Golf & Country Club officially re-opened its doors on the 1st December 2012 and has been a huge success surpassing all expectations. The condition of the course has improved nicely after being closed for nearly 3 years. The Greens are excellent and although the Fairways are a bit firm in places, the rates have been a big hit with players this year. With rates expected to increase during the High Season, now is a good time to grab a bargain at only 30 euro at any time of the day. Buggy's are FREE until the end of August, please refer to our reservation pages for details.

Accommodation at Corvera is also being used by the adjacent Horse Riding School which offers a number of courses for children and adults alike. Courses vary in type and duration and stables are also available for anyone planning to relocate.

Further afield, there is Lorca Golf & Spa which has become a favourite with local expats living in the region. Lorca has impressed seasoned golfers as the course is surprisingly technical and undulating, it is by no means a push over! With an excellent Clubhouse, Lorca plays host to a number of tournaments. The downside is the location which is further inland than most venues. However, with Green Fees are 29 euro and the course is quieter than most. If you are looking for a relaxed round of Golf, this venue may be just what you’re looking for.

At Roda Golf & Beach Club, the FREE Buggy offer with every 2 Green Fees remains the first requirement on most players itinerary so it's not a suprise that Roda is as popular as ever. Howver Green Fees start from 35 euro after 1pm. Lunch followed by a game of Golf anyone?

What is proving a real surprise is Vistabella Golf just over the border in Alicante. As Golfers ourselves, we are as guilty as most players when it comes to having a slightly less than positive opinion about playing a 9 Hole venue. But Vistabella is 11 Holes, so how does that work? Simply put, players play twice. 22 Holes for the price of just 18 holes! With 2 Green Fees and a Buggy available at either 63 or 74 euro for 22 holes of Golf, it’s hard to ignore this venue. Is it any good? Yes! It’s as good as any 18 hole venue in terms of quality and layout. Very popular and enjoyable to play.

Finally, we have to mention Las Colinas Golf & Country Club. Preferable Tee Times at this venue remain difficult to acquire even during the Low Season therefore we would like to remind players to book in advance. The most popular offers are restricted to limited Tee Times so don’t miss the chance to play this incredibly popular venue. Green Fee rates start from 38 euro after 4pm but the most popular Low Season offer is 2GF's+Buggy for 120 euro available until 1:30pm. Superb venue, highly recommended!

Whatever your plans for this summer, you can combined a stint on the beach with a game of Golf with Club Murcia.
