Alicante Golf was officially opened on 23 January 1998 in a ceremony presided by its designer, Severiano Ballesteros
Alicante Golf is located on the shores of the Mediterranean on the spectacular San Juan beach, it is a short 5 minutes drive from the centre of Alicante City.
The course has wide fairways which are planted with thousands of trees and flora. Care has been taken to ensure the environment is protected which has been honoured by being one of the first courses in Europe to win the most prestigious environmental quality certificates: ISO-14001 and Q-Plus
Severiano Ballesteros designed the course to be a par 72 with 6 par 3s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 5s. The design means that you never play two consecutive holes with the same par. A main feature of Seve's design is five large lakes that affect 12 of the 18 holes. All of which supposes an attractive challenge for golfers of all levels.
Another interesting aspect of the course is the 14th hole where you have to drive over the ruins of a Roman villa dating from the first century BC to reach the green. The ruins appeared during the construction of the course
The course record was set at 62 strokes by the great Pepín Rivero, a member of the European Ryder Cup champions team in 1985 and 1987
The club house includes changing rooms with sauna, gymnasium, Pro shop & reception, a clubroom, golf bag lockers and hire service for buggies, club hire and other sports material.
The facilites also has a leisure area for watching TV with restaurants, pubs and cafeterias
At the centre of this top-level professional championship course is a very comprehensive practice area, strategically placed near the first hole. Its reversible surface of natural grass is complemented by a larger area for practicing your short game with a bunker, putting and chipping greens.
