Villamartin Golf Club
Villamartin Golf Club enjoys a lofty position among rolling pine clad hills with spectacular views to the sea. Villamartin is a very popular inland residential area of Orihuela Costa. Not only does it receive thousands of holidaymakers each year but is also home to a large British expat community. Much of the holiday rental accommodation in the area is situated in safe gated communities. This is great for visitors as many of these communities boast excellent shared leisure facilities such as swimming pools, tennis courts, parks and playgrounds.
Villamartin Golf Club Surrounds
Villamartin Golf Club is handily located just across the road from the superb Villamartin Plaza. This is another major draw for visitors as the plaza is home to some of the liveliest bars and top restaurants in Orihuela Costa. The charming courtyard is adorned with trees and plants and boasts a stage area for regular live entertainment. The plaza's ground level also houses a selection of shops, banks, hairdressers, a supermarket and handy post room.
Villamartin Golf Course
The golf course was designed by Paul Putman and played host to the 1994 Mediterranean Open which was won by the much respected Jose Maria Olazabal. The course has a par of 72 and length of 6,005 metres. The excellently designed course offers challenges even for the most experienced player. Players can enjoy cooling sea breezes and wonderful views from most of the front 9 holes which take up the highest part of the course. The second 9 holes prove to be a bit more tricky, lying in the lower valleys with deep ravine hazards coming into play on some.
Villamartin Golf Club Facilities
Located close to the clubhouse players will find a well maintained practice area and within the course grounds there is a large driving range. At the clubhouse players can hire a range of golf trolleys and buggies. Club hire is available from the modern, well stocked Pro Shop where there is also a range of clothing and accessories. Even more well stocked is the '19th hole' where visitors can enjoy a great selection of local and imported beers, wines and spirits. The recently renovated restaurant boasts a superb a la carte menu and offers views over the 18th hole.
