La Estancia Golf Course
La Estancia Golf course was designated before as Melia Sanct Petri. The course was designed by the Dutch architect Alan Rijks and is his first work in Spain. The integration of the links with the protected natural parkland makes it a beautiful and entertaining Par 72 golf course.The hazards and watery chalenges are four brooks and three lakes. The hole 9 has one of the lakes just before the green that will make it a very interesting barrier to cross over. The other lake threatens a little on the right hand side of hole 4 and hole 15. Perhaps the brooks that cross the course come into play more often; one of them affecting holes 1 and 18, and the other, in particular, holes 4, 15, 16 and 17.However, it is the wind and sea breeze that are the main factors to bear in mind when playing at Golf La Estancia, as its close proximity to the sea will affect your game and your club selection on the big greens and also with steep slopes which force you to pay special attention to your putter.
