Yes No 8 of us (5hcp to 28) played 07/10/19 & this is becoming a favourite of ours - its only 5 mins from where we stay each year which helps it go on the Itinerary mind.

Badly hit by the Sept 2019 storms but other than a few bunkers with washed away Sand & buggies out of action (damaged), you would not have known. Tee's, fairways & Greens were sublime.

This is pretty much the busiest course we play (apart from Mar Menor in our opinion) and the tee time was 15 mins late due to number of fourballs going out. We were queing on each and every shot which can be a pain.

Unfortunately as we flew back that night, we could only play 15 holes (4 hours were up)

Course itself really strong & highly recommend, but suggest an 8am tee time to avoid queues.

Edit by Club Murcia: Excellent review!

Yes No Played the course on 24th September, weather v good, warm and light winds.

The staff in the pro shop were very friendly.

Course starts with a really difficult par 5. Hit it straight off the tee or you're in the water right or out of bounds left. The next few holes are quite testing as well so very hard to get a good score going from the first.
I agree with other reports that you need a course planner, I nearly put my ball in the water a couple of times of the tee without being able to see the trouble from the tee box. I would personally say water does come into play on about 14 holes from the white tees.
The course was better than I expected after reviewing previous reviews and would return again.

Yes No Played La Serena as on the afternoon of 14 April 2016 in lovely sunny conditions. We were a 2 ball ( handicaps 14 & 15) and were paired with a very pleasant husband and wife couple. We found the course in good condition with the best greens we had seen on this golf trip. The facilities were very good and the staff very pleasant and helpful. We could not fault this course in any way. However unless you are accurate from the Tee and know exactly where the water cuts in on some holes ,you can lose quite a few balls! For value and a very enjoyable game this course must be recommended.

CM Comment: Very good review. This course is very much about position off the Tee than distance. Good positioning off the Tee can lead to very good scoring...and less lost balls!

Yes No Played this course on the 28/6/2015 at 10:50 in temperatures up to 38 deg. My playing partner and I are both 28's, so we found this course quite difficult. There are water hazards on 16 holes and coupled with beach sized bunkers this proved quite a challenge for us. The greens were in great shape and a couple were pretty difficult to read. Saying that, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely play it again. There are also a couple of holes which a big hitter might fancy going for, but beware, you need to be accurate as well as brave :-) I would sum it up as a thinking persons course. Buggy is a must. My round was 55 out 58 back which I was pretty pleased with.

CM Comment: Very good review!

Yes No Handicap 6. Played 11.10.14.
Weather - sunny, light breeze.
Course was in OK condition. Importantly the greens were fast, pretty true and receptive.
Tees, fairways and some areas a little scruffy but generally didn´t detract.
Played off the back sticks - great test. Long & water on all but 2 holes so you´ll need to be straightish.
Get a course planner ´cos it´s not obvious where the water is.
Great pro shop - good stuff at good prices.
Busy round. Moved fairly well but did take close to 5hrs for a 3 ball.
Flat, easy walking. Buggy not needed.
Layout is very nice although beyond the course it´s not too pretty - if it´s golf you want it´s a good place.
Haggle on price. Deals to be had. We paid 60euros* - a little strong.

CM Comment: *Green Fee would have been much cheaper through Club Murcia. Water is not in play on all 16 holes when playing off the standard Tees but position (rather than length) off the Tee is the key to taking the water hazards out of play - Good review :-)

Yes No Played this course on 20th March 2014 in a four ball. Loads of water that comes into play, but if you can plan your way around a course this course is fun. 2 of my more wayward playing partners did not enjoy as they couldn't stay out of the water. Greens were good, fairways parched*.

Editor: *Fairway Grass types remain dormant and brown in colour at this time of year. Turning green through March and April as the sun increases.

Yes No I have read and heard some feedback regarding this course but I have to admit I’m not sure I agree with much of it. This is a nice course in a convenient location. There is an excellent clubhouse, a nice bar and restaurant and decent practice facilities. The course is shorter than most courses we played but that made it more enjoyable for my playing partners who are not big hitters. Given we found the course in good condition, we felt this was very good value when compared to the other courses.
