In Almeria, near the capital, the fantastic golf course of 18 Championship holes, Alboran Golf lies on the new residential and tourist resort of El Toyo, at a few yards from the beach, next to the natural background of Cabo de Gata and immersed in a unique semi-desert environment.
Alboran Golf, whose design has been developed by the prestigious golf
architect Ramon Espinosa, was the headquarters of the Almeria 2005
Mediterranean Games last summer.
It is located at 10 km from the capital of Almeria along the road N-344 and
only at five minutes from the international airport.
The highest quality standards have been demanded for the realization of this golf course, taking into account not only the excellent design by Ramón
Espinosa which has housed the Mediterranean Games players as well as the
amateur who want to play the whole year, but also the fulfilment of the golf
course execution project in which these demands are specified. Moreover, it
includes the last novelties according to the rules of the American Golf Association (USGA) in the matter of golf course design. It has been developed under an exhaustive quality control and respect to the environment.
Alboran Golf has a round of 18 Championship holes, par 72 of 6278 metres
long, a spacious driving range and different training places which will serve
as golf school.
The designer has managed to get an important equilibrium between the different holes, in its length as well as in its orientation and situation of the several elements that compound the golf course (bunkers, ponds, etc) in order to enjoy the game in a defiant course which is able to test our ability when playing every hole. The 66 bunkers are strategically located along every hole so that one cannot relax at any moment.
