ALMENARA HOTEL GOLF

Anytime is the perfect time for a round of golf at Almenara. The golf course consists of 27 holes allowing you to enjoy up to three different 18-hole combinations, all with a par of 72, so that each game is a new challenge for the player. The fairways wander among exceptionally beautiful natural landscapes, amidst two large lakes surrounded by pine and cork oak trees, which take on a singular prominence. Fantastic views of the Mediterranean and the mountains surround this golf course, coupled with an enviable climate that makes playing at Almenara possible all year round. The course was designed by the renowned golfing innovator Dave Thomas and constitutes an impassioned challenge for even the most experienced golfers.
