Club de Golf Villamartín
One of five golf courses in the Orihuela municipality Of the five golf courses located in the municipality of Orihuela Villamartín is perhaps the most prestigious and, many would argue, the most difficult. It’s fairly long (6,706 yards from the white tees), and although the fairways are reasonably forgiving the design, the gradients, the breeze, the trees, the bunkers and the tiered greens all come into play to make sure that even the supposedly..

Club de Golf Las Ramblas, Orihuela
The outrageous hazards make this course an enjoyable challenge for golfers The course The unusual course at Las Ramblas de Orihuela, designed by Pepe Gancedo, first opened in 1991, and has been frustrating and delighting players of all levels ever since. Some purists will complain that at 5,806 metres (6,350 yards) from the white tees it is short for a par-72 course, but for most the challenges presented by the hilly terrain and outrageous hazards..

Real Club de Golf Campoamor, Orihuela
The course has a relatively easy series of opening holes….but then attempts to ruin the score card with more demanding holes. This much-played course, which first opened in 1988, is one of those which welcomes the golfer with open arms, offering a series of relatively straightforward opening holes, and then attempts to ruin your card with more demanding design on the closing stretch. This pattern is common to both the front and back nines. The..
