Having resided only a few of minutes drive from the Campoamor Golf Course (overlooking the 15th at Villamartin Golf Club) and played there on many occasions, I can really say it is one of my favourite courses to play at. It is totally different from the other courses in the locale (Villamartin Golf Course & Las Ramblas Golf Course
) with wide spacious fairways, large greens and much longer. If you imagined a Spanish golf course, I suppose it would look like this with its beautiful palm trees, lush green fairways (although I have witnessed them spraying them with what I guess is a green vegetable based dye!) and surrounding orange and lemon groves.

The new Campoamor hotel and clubhouse is on top of a steep hill which gives you an impressive welcome on arrival, with fantastic vistas across the course, plus on a clear day you can see right across to the Mar Menor and famous La Manga Strip. Before you book a round of golf though, please ascertain that the entire main course is open, as once or twice every year they re-seed and relay all the fairways, then use some holes from the new short course, if that is the position do not waste your hard earned cash! Always book a round at Campoamor by fax, as well and then print a copy to take along with you. Early spring and autumn are the busiest times with visitors from all over the colder and wetter parts of Europe there to escape the weather at home.

Campoamor Golf Club can be a bit slow sometimes, especially at weekends and bank holidays and even though you are supposed to have a handicap to play here, I have certainly seen a lot of complete hackers who quite obviously have not a clue, which can be really annoying if you are stuck right behind them. There are okay practise facilities, with a large open air golf range that gets extremely busy in the late afternoon, plus a bunker, putting and chipping green.

The bunkers have not much of a very coarse white sand in them and you should try to get the feel of them before you start play. The greens are mostly in good shape and can be lightning on occasions. There is no long grass rough as such at Campoamor Golf Club, but what I call a wilderness on the flanks of most fairways. If you find yourself searching for your ball in one of these waste areas, be careful as some of the plants and palms have very sharp and prickly or thorns. In the heat of midsummer I always rent a buggy, throw the cool bag on the back, with lots of ice cold drinks then relax and take my time.... just heaven.
