Mar Menor Golf Course

The golf course is located in the province of Murcia Spain, close to the town of Torre Pacheco. The course is a par 72, approximately 6,153 meters in length.

The course design gives the golfer two different expereinces. The first nine holes were designed by David Thomas to be a par 37, 3,275 meters in length. The fairways have hardly any rough but the greens are well protected with strategiclly placed bunkers and lakes which challenges the golfer to make good strokes to put the ball on the green.

The second nine holes were designed by Jack Nicklaus to be a par 35, 2,878 meters in length. The course is wide with wide roughs that allow big strokes. Holes 13, 14 and 15 are surrounded by a spectacular lake making this water hazard the greatest obstacle to be overcome. The other holes are protected by strategiclly placed bunkers.

Location

The golf course village is only 8 miles from Mar Menor, which is Europe's biggest salt water lagoon. The lagoon is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by La Manga which is a strip of land 22km long.

The lagoon's average depth is 4 metres with a maximum depth of only 7 metres. This means the seabed slopes very gradually and you have to get several hundred metres into the sea before the water is of any depth.
