Font del Llop ...
the wolves watering hole ..
a great Costa Blanca golf course.
 
     

FONT DEL LLOP, meaning a "Wolfs Watering Hole", to my mind is one golf course that should be on any players agenda when visiting the Costa Blanca.
Nestling in a valley Font del Llop is a comparatively new course and only opened in 2010. The course can be found from the Torrevieja area, via the AP7/A7/E15; towards Alicante taking the Montforte del Cid exit, then taking the exit for Aspe (CV841). The Font del Llop golf course can then be seen on the left hand side some 3+kms from the turn off for Aspe.

The Costa Blanca golf course is only 15 minutes from Alicante Airport.

The Font del Llop club house, a restored finca, is furnished with everything required at a golf club; with a fine restaurant and views from the large terrace of most of the course. The course also has a large driving range and an academy under the control of Miguel Jimenez.

Font del Llop Golf Course
Font del Llop was designed by Blake Stirling & Marco Martin, not names known by most, but here they have created a masterpiece course of 5 par 5's, 8 par 4's and 5 par 3's all contained in 5870 mtrs from the yellow tee's and ... 4860 from the red's ... as it should be .. the Ladies have the advantage.

Font del Llop Hole 1
The front 9 starts with a Par 4 Stroke Index 17. Out of bounds all down the left, slight dog leg to the right and a hole covered by 3 bunkers. Reasonably easy hole and a nice one to get you on your way.
Font del Llop Hole 2
Par 4 Stroke index 5. Dog leg to the right; o.b's again all the way on the left, if you cut the corner to the green, beware of the bunkers and the slope down to the water which stretches nearly 3 sides of the green.
Font del Llop Hole 3
Par 5 Stroke index 6. You need to be down the middle of a narrow fairway here because o.b's all the way to the left and rough together with running water to the right.

Font del Llop Hole 4
Par 4 Stroke index 17. O.b's all down the left to the green, beware of the 2 bunkers in the middle of the fairway where your drive may come to an early rest.
Font del Llop Hole 5
Par 5 Stroke index 15. Not as easy as it may appear for the Stroke index. Your first must be bang on straight to miss the trees protecting the start of the fairway, also be aware of ravines both sides of the fairway. I consider this hole a little challenge.
Font del Llop Hole 6
Par 4 Stroke index 2. A drive over the ravine will see you onto the middle of a slightly uphill fairway, then just beware of the bunkers around the green.

Font del Llop Hole 7
Par 4 Stroke index 18. An uphill hole, with plenty of bunkers protecting the green and o.b's and a stream running down the left hand side.
Font del Llop Hole 8
A reasonably long Par 3 Stroke index 11. Has a stream bordering the 2 tiered green and o.b's all down the left.
Font del Llop Hole 9
Par 5 Stroke index 1. What can I say ... a beautiful hole, BUT having hopefully driven the water you could finish up in a large bunker on the right. From there it's all up hill and down dale to the right, all the way to the green. A very large bunker together with a huge pine tree planted in the middle, protect the green. Should you drive to the left from the tee then you then have to contend with more water leading into a stream which then divides the fairway and goes round the green to the left.
Great hole with a very challenging green. Good luck!

To my mind the Font del Llop 2nd 9 becomes a little easier ... so let s get on ...

Font del Llop Hole 10
Par 4 Stroke index 10. Long and downhill, with 3 strategic bunkers on the right side of the fairway.
Font del Llop Hole 11
Par 5 Stroke index 8. Beware of a very large bunker and 6 more down the left before you reach the green.
Font del Llop Hole 12
Par 3 Stroke index 12. Water all the way!, bunkers to the left of the green. Be careful with club selection for the 2nd shot, I would say 1 less than you think.

Font del Llop Hole 13
Par 4 Stroke index 16. Downhill all the way, rough all the way on the right; water to the left of the green and trees to the right.
Font del Llop Hole 14

Par 4 Stroke index 3. All uphill here, 3 bunkers protecting the green be careful with club selection for the 2nd shot, I would say 1 less than you think.
Font del Llop Hole 15
Par 5 Stroke index 15. Wow! Must get over water from the tee, and then bunkers and rough all down the left hand side. The green has a very narrow entrance between 2 large bunkers.
From here we head to 2 par 3s ... not the easiest par 3's for the men ... but the Ladies, no comment!

Font del Llop Hole16
Par 3 Stroke index 13. Long with o.b's all down the left hand side.
Font del Llop Hole 17
Par 3 Stroke index 9. Here you have out of bounds, the road to the left and a green completely surrounded by sand so a bucket and spade may the order of the day.
Font del Llop Hole 18
Par 5 Stroke index 4. A great hole to finish and a real test, with o.b's all down the left hand side. The downhill fairway in the valley, narrows down past 4 bunkers toward the green. The water to the right side of the fairway which also covers the right side of the green, is some 100+ mtrs in length and could also cause you a problem.

I have made no comments about the greens, but what I will say is that they are (all) a challenge ...
When I last played Font del Llop the greens were lightning fast, and I was advised by the Course Director that after the hollow tinning they were only 60% up to scratch, so do beware!

Font del Llop is a great course
Par 72 playing a total length of 6316 mtrs off the white's,
5870 off the yellow's
4860 mtrs off the red's.

FONT DEL LLOP IS A MUST DO COURSE FOR EVERYONE
