Course Information: 18-holes, par 72, 6096 metres (yellow tees)
Location: Outskirts of Alicante City, very close to San Juan beach
The design of the course is very balanced with 5 large lakes, which affect 7 holes and with lots of bunkers perfectly placed that force you to make decisions from the tee. The first 9 holes can be considered more technical in the hit to green due to having to overcome the lakes. The short game will help a lot when it comes to getting a good score here. The back 9, especially from hole 12 to 18, the driver will be decisive when getting the ball on the fairway.
The holes are quite technical, as you have to avoid three of the five existent lakes. The three last holes of the front 9 can spoil even the best score card, as they are the handicap 1 (par 4), 13 ( par 3), and 3 (par 4) in the course: they called by the local golfers the “Amen Corner” of Bonalba. The back 9, being also quite technical, requires stronger strokes. It has holes where the dominant breeze from Levante makes it difficult to reach the green, normally forcing the golfers to use more “woods” than usual. On holes 16, 17, and 18, the breeze blows right into the faces of the golfers.
