COSTA CALIDA/MURCIA

COSTA CALIDA/MURCIA

 

GOLF OF THE HIGHEST ECHELON!

The eruption of golf course development during the past ten years has elevated the Costa Calida/Murcia area of Spain into the highest echelon of Spain’s golfing destinations.

Boasting in the region of 20 top quality golf courses with a dozen more courses within easy reach in nearby neighboring Alicante, this is the epitome of a golfer’s paradise.

Nestling in the south east corner of Spain, between the provinces of Valencia, to the north and Andalucia, to the south, the Costa Calida offers over 150 miles of captivating coastline including some of Spain’s best beaches.

Costa Calida translates into “warm coast”. This semi arid climate where the winter temperatures hover around 20 degrees provides the ideal golf holiday haunt to escape from Britain’s winter woes.

The mountainous terrain plus the arid climate lends itself perfectly to accommodate the desert style golf courses more commonly found in Arizona. A fact that was recognized by the Nicklaus design team and exploited to the full when designing the courses that constitute the “Nicklaus Golf Trail”

No mention of the Murcia area would be complete without reference the natural phenomena that is the Mar Menor (Little Sea). A salty lagoon, it is the largest lagoon in Europe with a surface area of over 100 square miles. Separated from the Mediterranean by a 13 mile sandbar, La Manga, it is for the main part only six foot in depth thus providing the perfect environment for a multitude of watersports and has in fact been described as “the largest swimming pool in the world”.

Within two and half hours flying time from most UK airports, arriving at either Murcia or Alicante airports, promotes this destination as being perfect not only for traditional golfing holidays but also for mid-week breaks and long weekends. A superb selection of magnificent four and five star resorts are available or if you prefer ultimate flexibility, a range of self catering accommodation provides a budget priced alternative.  

World Golf is very excited to have chosen the Costa Calida/Murcia area for its first foray into Spanish golf holidays and we can thoroughly recommend it as….
