The stunning par 72 course, designed by Severiano Ballesteros, with a unique layout of six-hole 3, six par 4, and six par 5. You never play two consecutive holes with the same par in a single round, making the game considerably more diverse and interesting while still providing numerous opportunities for a birdie. On the course, five large lakes influence 12 of the 18 holes. As a result, golfers of all ability levels will find the course an intriguing challenge.
An essential and costly green reconstruction project lasted five years between 2004 and 2008. It was rebuilding the course's 18 greens to improve the design and aspects such as watering, drainage, landscaping. Helped establish Alicante Golf as one of Spain's best-maintained courses. This reputation has been strengthened by the successful completion of the project, which was a five-year endeavour that cost more than one million euros. The course has acquired 18 actual luxury greens due to the improvements, in addition to the new green on the 18th hole, which offers the course with a spectacular and dramatic conclusion that can be seen from any of the rooms at Hotel Alicante Golf.
Seve Ballesteros created this 18-hole golf course.
Alicante Golf officially opened its doors on January 23, 1998, with a ceremony presided over by its designer, Severiano Ballesteros, and Emma Villacieros, then President of the Spanish Golf Federation.
In December 2001, the Club hosted a professional event featuring a selection of professionals from the Valencia Community and the Levante Cup. Sergio Garcia and José Manuel Lara, both young players, were chosen.
The Peugeot Tour Classification School have picked this course as a venue for competitions. However, from its debut in 2002 until 2005, the School was a source of tension in Alicante Golf, mainly when it contained young prospective players already making their marks, such as Alvaro Quirós (3rd) and Pablo Larrazábal.
Peugeot's Tour of Spain is a cycling event throughout the country.
After hosting the APG Spanish Championship in 2002 and 2003, which José Manuel Carriles and Ignacio Garrido won, respectively, Alicante Golf received its final stamp of approval as a destination for major professional tournaments with the staging of the Peugeot Tour of Spain Grand Final in 2004, which was won by Santi Luna, a member of the European Tour.
