Acaidesa Golf Course
Alcaidesa was originally designed as a Links Course by Peter Allis and Clive Clark. Its views of the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and on a clear day the Atlas Mountains of northern Africa across the Straits, are spectacular.
The design and layout of the holes and fairways along the beach give you the sensation of playing a Irish Links Course, with the difference of the wonderful southern Spain sub-tropical climate. Playing at Alcaidesa is a unique experience that everyone wants to repeat.
Alcaidesa, as a quality golf course, has hosted three Spanish P.G.A. Professional Competitions since opening in the summer of 1992. After a round of golf relaxes in Alcaidesa’s Golf Club House which offers you the possibility of having lunch in its restaurant in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere.
Their Pro-Shop offers quality golf products, tuition by resident Pro Pedro Sarria, driving range and putting green and approach areas are other services which the golf course provides.
The 18th hole Alcaidesa Links Golf Course is the first competition standard golf course in Spain which falls into the Links category. Alcaidesa is refered to as a links course because it is situated along the coastline and because you need to know how to handle the windy conditions. However, the landing areas are well suitable to players of all ages and abilities who are looking for a good day’s golfing without having to bend the ball one way or the other. The greens are not too large or complicated, but to card a good score or win your bet, you will need to hit it straight and have a good short game
The superb layout runs parallel with the coastline amidst hills of the Alcaidesa countryside. Whilst playing it the silent presence of the majestic rock of Gibraltar is very apparent with the Atlas Mountains of Africa viewable in the distant horizon on a clear day.
The work carried out in 1999 has apparently worked wonders for the maintenance of this fast developing golf club. It is great fun playing here when there is a little sea breeze in the air.
Its spectacular layout borders the beach amidst hills and natural vegetation. Whilst playing it, there is no way to escape the silent presence of the majestic rock of Gibraltar and the Atlas mountains of Africa which mark the distant horizon.
