Around and About the Courses – Update

The covid-19 corona virus continues to take a grip of countries on a global basis with impacts on both the health and finances of both individuals and businesses.

The golf industry is just a part of this struggle against the virus and all local courses are operating without the income from tourist golfers and this impacts on the level of service that they can provide with some members of staff still on ERTE (Furlough) from March 2020.

Below is a short review of some of the courses in the regions of Alicante and Murcia.


The course remains closed to the general public, allowing only members, groups and existing pre-bookings to play the course but they have taken the time to re-vamp the greens and clubhouse ready for when the tourist golfers return.


Unfortunately GNK have had to make the tough decision to close the course from the 20th October 2020 until further notice.


The course is fully open to the public and the greens, which were re-laid last year are significantly better than previous although still with some evidence of mixed grasses on the greens.

Font Del Llop

This excellent golf course remains open to the public at some of the lowest green fee rates in the region but with limited refreshment services as they have taken the opportunity to re-build the restaurant facilities.

Hacienda Riquelme

Unfortunately and similar to Alhama, GNK have unfortunately decided to close the course until further notice.

Lo Romero

Due to the lack of tourist golfers the course remains closed on Sunday’s and Monday’s and the situation currently applies for the months of October and November.

Mar Menor

One month ago the course was in a very poor condition but the two temporary greens have now been removed, the waste areas improved and now they have just a few bunkers on the back nine which are GUR.

We will keep you updated in upcoming articles as the situation develops and changes.
