Mar Menor golf course was originally opened as a 9 hole designed by Dave Thomas later converted into an 18 hole golf course designed by the great Jack Nicklaus. Without doubt this is an ideal resort or society golf course with an emphasis based on positioning the ball in the correct part of the fairway from the tee and then below the flags on the undulating greens. Some of the earlier holes can ‘lull’ you into a false sense of security but when you reach holes 13,14 and 15 all of which wrap themselves around a man made lake, you are quickly brought to your senses. In particular the 15th hole will test your patience as the small landing ‘areas’ from the tees are well guarded by sand bunkers. All facilities available, Club house, Spa …a place to be all day.
Clubhouse and Restaurant were fine same as the last visit. The course was in a need for some upgrades from the Greenkeeping staff. Tee boxes were very scarce on grass, bunkers un raked and a lot of the greens were full of un-mowed patches and divots where other players have not been bothering.
Good course lovely greens
Fairways are dry and it was full of little stones in bunker sand… easy to play in three hours for two players (teetime 8 am.)
Very busy course but in excellent condition. Teetimes were very efficient.
I’ve played this Course at least a dozen times. Course was in really good condition and the greens were good. Probably the best condition I’ve seen the course in for two or three years.
Course was in good condition and you can tell a lot of work has been done on the course in the last 6 months. Probably in the best condition the course has been in for a couple of years. We’ll worth playing and friendly staff.
Course was looking really good apart from the greens. Unfortunately the greens had been Hollow Tinned the week before we played the course but that’s maintenance, so can’t be counted. Still 7 out of 10:)
