Club Murcia are pleased to inform all players that we have added some additional Golf Courses to our Discount Green Fee Reservation Service. On a monthly basis the Club Murcia website regularly receives over 10,000 visitors a month, many of whom are looking for discounted Green Fees.
We have regularly been asked to include some additional Golf Courses in the neighbouring regions of Alicante and Almeria.
This week we are introducing Desert Springs Golf Club in Almeria...
The Indiana Golf Course, Desert Springs.
Course designer Peter McEvoy - "We have created a course which really can be enjoyed by players of all different standards, we have kept the fairways generous and ensured that the less expert player can enjoy and improve his game whilst absorbing the awesome landscape and views that encompass The Indiana.
On the other hand, every hole has features which can be brought into play; the springs, watercourses, dry river beds, rock and cactus areas and bunkers are strategically located to examine the skills of golf's leading players when playing off the championship tees".
Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, The Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to the full USGA specifications and quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer. It presents unforgettable views, and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.
Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the “desert springs” and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.
Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling, the further your shot is off the fairway, culminating in the dreaded “spiked lies”, so the course is both demanding and exhilarating. It offers a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.
The quality of the course was confirmed by its selection by the English Golf uni0n and currently by the Welsh Ladies Golf uni0n, as their “Spanish Home” and also by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, for whom Desert Springs hosted the 2004 Spanish Amateur Open and will be hosting the 2007 Open. Its Academy of Golf provides practice facilities, second to none, for National squad and County uni0n members.
