In the March issue we introduced readers to GAGS and gave an insight to our background. We thought for this month we would expand the information on the Course we play – El Plantio Golf.

As mentioned previously the Course is the closest to GA, being circa 15 minute drive. It is located on the A-79, Torrellano to Alicante road, effectively behind the hills facing the Airport. The Course is a parkland style with tree lined fairways, being c6600 yards off the yellow tees (c5600 yards off the reds for the ladies). It is a Par 72 (36 both halves) with 2 par 5’s and 2 par3’s on both sides.

Buggies are available to hire and are generally allowed on the course. The layout is mainly flat with just 3 holes that go uphill; consists of fairway bunkers on 7 holes and greenside bunkers on 12.

Perhaps the distinctive features of the Course are the water hazards/lakes which come into play on 7 holes. As well as the main course there is a testing 9 hole Par 3 which will hone the short game skills as well as a practice putting green and a driving range which has the benefit of playing off grass rather than mats.

The course also has a large bar and eating area within the clubhouse as well as a locker room with showers. There is ample car parking. We hope that has whetted your appetite to join us. New members and/or guests are always welcome, whether a full time resident, someone with your own holiday home for regular visits throughout the year or a holiday maker in the region.

We would love to see you.
