‘Around and About the courses – ALTORREAL ‘
The pleasant golf course of Altorreal, designed by Dave Thomas, was opened to the pubic in 1994 and is located in foothills close to Molina de Segura and within one hours travelling time from Alicante and San Javier airports.
The large clubhouse has an upper veranda giving excellent views of the 9th and 18th holes and is fitted with glass curtains which can be closed to the elements on ‘chilly’ late winter afternoons.
The café bar restaurant offers a wide variety of food and beverage at very affordable prices and in addition the facilities include ample covered parking,shower and changing rooms plus a sauna and a golf shop.
There has been a change of ownership at Altorreal in the past 12 months and the new owners have made a number of simple but effective changes to the course and buggy paths which will prevent unnecessary ‘wear’ in the wetter months and currently a number of new tees are being laid to further improve the golfing experience under the guidance of a management team formerly at La Peraleja.
This parkland style course consisting of two ‘loops’ starting and finishing close to the clubhouse with a par of 72 of 6,036 metres (6,640 yards) from the yellow tees.
Having played this course on many occasions I have come to the conclusion that it is a risk and reward course and you generally get what you deserve, if you play well you will score well and if you play poorly and hit bad shots you will be punished.
Given the undulating nature of the course the designer has used the slopes to ensure that you rarely have a flat lie and has combined this with strategically placed bunkers and water features to catch errant shots.
For the better players there are a number of good birdie opportunities on this course but danger also lurks so you will also need good course management.
The golf course continues to be competitively priced and should be added to any resident or tourist golfers schedule.
