4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Almenara Golf Hotel & Spa: In terms of elevation there is a distinct similarity between the three excellent nine-hole loops here at Almenara. Whether you are on Los Lagos (Lakes), Los Pinos (Pines) or Los Alcornoques (Cork Oaks) you will start out playing a couple of downhill holes, hit a flatter middle section, before commencing quite serious climbs back up to the clubhouse. Excellent maintenance, not overly wide fairways and fast, slick greens are also common. The Los Pinos loop feels the tightest, with trees and bushes lining many of the fairways. Los Lagos, as the name implies, has several water hazards very much in play, particularly in its middle section, as does Los Alconorques. All three nines are excellent in their own right, but our favourite is Los Alcornoques, which has some of the most dramatic holes, not least its two plunging downhill par-3's. Throughout, there are wonderful views from the course; sometimes natural countryside, other times largish villas and occasionally the Mediterranean.
