Club de Golf Jávea
UNITED QUALITY AND ECELLENCE
The course was designed by Francisco Moreno and opened in 1981. Situated 100 kilometers from Alicante on the road to Valencia, and sheltered from the wind by Cape San Antonio. The course has a perfect microclimate all year, and is in a wonderful natural setting, surrounded by pine trees.
The field is a gently sloping 9 hole course with manicured greens and fairways flanked by palm trees, pines and orange trees. Although only 9 holes, in the second round many of the holes are played from different tees so it is virtually an 18 hole course. Also the green 4/13 is large enough to accommodate two pin positions.
The difficulties of the hole 9, a par 4 with splendid views from a plateau green requiring a safe and precise shot to face their dogleg. The number 16 is 120 meters shorter and 5 with 475 meters the longest.
While not very long, it is certainly challenging as it is plagued by bunkers, 34 in total, and all the greens have subtle drops, many of which are difficult to read.
