Course Information: 18-holes, par 68
Location: Torre Pacheco, Murcia
The challenge course was the second of the Nicklaus trail golf courses to be opened. It is only a par 68 course but does come with many challenges including 550,000 sq.m of sculpted bunkers. You will be a very lucky player not to have use of your sand wedge throughout the round and with 3 lakes in play on 7 holes to make an impression with any handicap player. Island greens and lakes await you throughout the course but nothing quite like the 9th hole. A full carry over water with a mid to long iron to a shallow green, short in water, long in the bunker with a shot out towards the lake. Nerves will tell more if there’s an audience of onlookers to the balcony outside Pino’s bar which looks down on the green. Another 2 Par 3’s over water on the back nine, play the par 3’s well and you could be onto a good score.
