Real Clun de Golf Campoamor is located on the Orihuela Costa, south of Torrevieja, Alicante. It is one of the finest golf clubs in Spain. Only a couple of minutes drive from where I reside is this club where I have played numerous times, one of my preferred golf courses to indulge at. It is different and nicer than the other local clubs which are Villamartin Golf Course and Las Ramblas Golf Course. This club has broad spacious fairways and longer and large greens. The club is pretty much like an anticipated Spanish golf course with alluring palm trees and lavishing green fairways encompassing orange and lemon orchards. This club is so beautiful that it made me imagine that the course is sprayed green.
On the summit of a high hill, the new Campoamor hotel and clubhouse is ready to take you in for a guest with a warm welcome with terrific vista views across the course. If you are lucky, you will get to see across to the Mar Menor and renowned La Manga Belt. When booking for a golf round, make sure that the entire course is opened as every year they sow and spread all the fairways and provide you with new short course holes. If this is the condition, you will miss all the exquisite parts of this club, so do not let your hard earned money languish. Make sure you book by fax for a round at Campoamor. Also, take a printed copy with you. From all over Europe with colder and rainy climate, visitors flock the place in early spring and autumn. This place is perfect to escape the undesired weather.
Sometimes the Campoamor Golf Club can be dull even though you have paid to play, particularly at weekends and bank holidays. If you are stuck behind the people who seldom play, it can take more time, so it gets pesky and to tell you this I have seen it several times before. Practice facilities are of an average level. The club has a large open air golf ambit and it is very busy during late afternoon. Also a bunker to putt and chip green gets quite busy around this time.
Before you play, I recommend you to feel the bunker sand which is not of very much coarse white sand. The greens are in better shape and at times lightning is experienced. Almost all the wing parts of fairways have rough long grass at Campoamor Golf Club, which I call a wilderness and if you happen to lose a ball in one of these spots, you need to be careful with some of these prickly and thorny plants and palms which are sharp too. Midsummer here gets really hot. Therefore I rent a buggy with a cool packed bag loaded with ice cold drinks, then loosen up and take all the time to myself and feel very good. I do it all the time.
