The most authentic and exciting way of playing golf. Alcaidesa Links Golf Course is the first competition standard golf course in Spain which falls into the Links category.
Its spectacular layout borders the beach amidst hills and natural vegetation. Whilst playing it, there is no way to escape the silent presence of the majestic rock of Gibraltar and the Atlas mountains of Africa which mark the distant horizon.
The work carried out in 1999 has apparently worked wonders for the maintenance of this fast developing golf club. It is great fun playing here when there is a little sea breeze in the air. The course is very much in keeping with the spectacular vista over the Mediterranean sea and the massive rock of Gibraltar which dominates a large part of the course.
Alcaidesa has been called a links because it is situated along the coastline and because you need to know how to handle the wind. However the type of soil, layout and breadth of the landing areas are well suited to players of all ages and abilities who are looking for a good day’s golfing without having to bend the ball one way or the other.
The greens are not oversized or too complicated, but to card a good score or win your bet, you will need to hit it straight and have a good short game.
