Where to Stay: El Rompido Golf Resort
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to playing golf in Spain. However, at Golf El Rompido there are 36 fantastic holes of golf and unlimited golfing deals to whet your golfing appetite. The first 18 hole layout opened for play in 2003 and this is known as the South Course. Designed by Alvaro Arana, the South Course is a parkland course and is set among lovely pine trees and orange groves.
Accuracy is the key when playing the South Course at Golf El Rompido. Due to, the slight elevations around the 18 holes but nothing major. On the 17th and 18th holes, you are required to play tee shots over the marsh, which is an exciting way to finish.
The North Course at Golf El Rompido opened in 2006 and is quite short for a modern golf course. However, a good strategy is required. The course is located in the Marismas del Río Piedras Nature Reserve. Thus, providing a wonderful natural setting for a round of golf. Much of the front nine plays alongside the Piedra River marshlands but it’s the par-3 16th hole that is standout, thanks to the beautiful setting and the testing bunkers surrounding the green.
Both courses come with practice ranges and Golf El Rompido is a top venue for playing golf in Costa de la Luz.
The courses at the Resort are incredible, but, the practice facilities here are just outstanding. You may use your downtime at the resort to really focus on your game with two comprehensive practice areas, one for each course, and return home as an improved golfer. Really, this is the best place to go for some pre-season preparation so that at home, you can hit the golf season in fine form.
A broad putting green, extensive short game areas, and a full-length driving range are available at the facilities on the southern side to improve your long game. A shorter driving range, a wedge area for practicing on longer approach shots, a putting green, a chipping green and a practice bunker are given in the northern practice complex.
