The mild temperatures of the Mediterranean coast make the Valencia Region of Spain, where our 'Los Huertos' luxury villa is located, the perfect destination for golfers. This is especially true in the autumn and winter months when the climate in this part of Spain is ideal for the sport of golf, whereas the weather in Great Britain and northern Europe can be cold, wet or at best unpredictable. The Valencia Region holds an abundance of incredibly well maintained 18 hole and 9 hole golf courses to choose from, many designed by world famous golf course designers and catering for all levels of golfing ability.

  • Club de Golf El Saler
Designed by Javier Arana 1968, El Saler is located beside the Mediterranean within Albufera Nature Park. It has hosted a number of Spanish Opens, and is considered one of the top European golf courses, and number 29 in the world.
  • Club de Golf Oliva Nova
Designed by Severiano Ballesteros 1995, Oliva Nova has been voted one of Seve's best designs. It has hosted the Peugeot Oki Spanish National Championships four times and attracts many prestigious golfing events.
  • El Bosque Golf and Country Club
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1975, this is a course of championship quality but playable by all levels of golfer. Spanning hills and gullies, with fast greens and over 100 bunkers, El Bosque has hosted several Spanish Opens.
  • Club de Golf Escorpion
Designed by Ron Kirby in 1975, Escorpion is set in a very attractive pine covered valley, and has just about everything one could imagine: spectacular holes, beautiful scenery and the traditional flavour of a time-honoured course.
  • Club de Golf Manises
Designed by Javier Arana and opened in 1954, Club de Golf Manises is the oldest of the Valencian clubs. Its flat layout with narrow fairways flanked by trees, and small greens surrounded by numerous bunkers demands precise playing.
  • Foressos Golf Club
Designed by D Jose Gancedo and opened in March 2007, Forressos is only 15 minutes from down-town Valencia. The course has 14 lakes and is surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation including 1500 palms, 100 olives and100 pines.

Further afield but still within easy reach of the villa, are at least another 16 superb golf courses in the Castellon and Alicante provinces of the Valencia region.
