Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club


The Indiana course at Desert Springs is the first and only desert course in Europe and has been built to the full USGA specifications and quality standards of the now famous desert courses of Arizona and California. The contrast between the beautifully prepared and manicured playing areas and the acrid yet vividly coloured desert captures the essence of why golf is different at Desert Springs.

As for the course itself, it presents unforgettable views and takes golf to a new level of excellence so far as design and construction is concerned. The fairways have been kept generous to ensure the less impressive golfer can enjoy his game while taking in the landscape and wonderful views that encompass the Indiana. However, when stretched to its limits the course has been constructed to test even the world’s best players.

Designed by Peter McEvoy, Desert Springs was opened in 2000 and one of his main features are the many tee positions to make a more accommodating challenge depending on the golfers standard. Another feature is that every hole seems to have a hazard that is brought in to play such as the springs, the water-courses, dry river beds, rocks and make sure you watch out for those prickly cactus areas! You might even spot one of the numerous armadillos that roam the course.

The bunkers are strategically placed to test the skills of even the most accomplished golfer particularly from the championship tees. The course is a good mixture of holes and is always kept in superb condition with the fairways being immaculate and the greens being some of the finest you will play.

En la última esquina de la costa este andaluza, sobre el Valle de Almanzora, con cómodo acceso desde los aeropuertos internacinales de Almería y Alicante, Desert Springs ha construido el primer campo europeo de estilo desierto de Arizona. Diseñado por Peter McEvoy, que lideró el equipo británico-irlandés de Walker Cup venció recientemente a Estados Unidos, Desert Springs cosntruido siguiendo todas las epecificaciones USGA,merece la pena ser jugado.

La diferencia con los campos `normales` salta a la vista, algo normal teniendo en cuenta que éste es el desierto donde se filmaron numerosas películas del oeste, de modo que un campo de golf de tipo duro encaja aquí a la perfección. Desert Springs no es de todos modos tan duro cómo parece, pero sí un gran reto para el golfista en un curioso escenario, con cactus, crocas y cauces secos, hasta ahora desconocido en Europa.
