Hotel Desert Springs Golf Resort 4 stars
The Indiana Course
Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, The par 72 international championship Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to full USGA specifications and the quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer. It presents unforgettable views, and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.
Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the 'desert springs' and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.
Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling, the further your shot is off the fairway, culminating in the dreaded “spiked lies”, so the course is both demanding and exhilarating, providing a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.
Course designer Peter McEvoy
"We have created a course which really can be enjoyed by players of all different standards, we have kept the fairways generous and ensured that the less expert player can enjoy and improve his game whilst absorbing the awesome landscape and views that encompass The Indiana.
On the other hand, every hole has features which can be brought into play; the springs, watercourses, dry river beds, rock and cactus areas and bunkers are strategically located to examine the skills of golf's leading players when playing off the championship tees."
The Golfing Life at Desert Springs
The aim of the Desert Springs Golf Club is to offer golf in its very best traditions within a relaxed atmosphere of camaraderie and good fun, to provide the best possible golfing experience to all golfers, members, guests and visitors alike and to ensure that the Indiana Course can be enjoyed by players of all abilities.
The Club and the Course are managed to achieve just this, with respect for the etiquette and courtesies of the game being a particular feature.
Our commitment is to do what we can to exceed your expectations, with a truly warm and friendly welcome and an uncompromising level of service that you would not expect this side of the great pond. Desert Springs is different and the quality in depth of that difference becomes apparent from the moment you arrive.
The Lodge style of accommodation and facilities offer an unbeatable qualitative difference for your holiday; way over and above anything that a conventional hotel can hope to offer.
