Altorreal Golf is one course that TorreGolf.eu have visited now for many years. Altorreal Golf is very special to us, and is a great golf course to play. The course is fantastic for our lady members as the red tees are 858m shorter than the distance from the yellows.


Golf Altorreal Course
Golf Altorreal - Fairway to Hole Four
 
Set in the hills above the City of Murcia, Altorreal Golf is a Par 72 course at 6017m from the yellow tees. The golf course was designed by Dave Thomas and opened in 1994.
Altorreal Golf has 4 Par 3's; 10 Par 4's; and 4 Par 5's. From the Altorreal Club House you can survey the putting green, the first tee, and the 9th and 18th greens, and vast amount of the Murcia country side.
Altorreal is a tight course with narrow fairways on the whole, enough rough for the first cut to lose your ball, and beyond that rough, scrub land, trees and more trees.

Golf Altorreal - Water hazzard.
Altorreal Golf Hole 1. Par 4 - Stroke index 15 - 293mtrs.
Your game starts just behind the putting green. You have trees all down the left and right till you get to the dog leg. Try to keep to the left otherwise you will find yourself with water in front of the green. A great start.
Altorreal Golf Hole 2. Par 4 - Stroke index 17 - 307mtrs.
All downhill with the green easily reached in 2, but beware the trees all the way down the left and right
Altorreal Golf Hole 3. Par 4 - Stroke index 3 - 365mtrs.
Plenty of fairway available for your tee shot, uphill, dog leg right with plenty of trees/scrub again to both the left and right and then downhill to the green, a great hole! Remember to ring the bell when you've played your 2nd Shot.
Altorreal Golf Hole 4. Par 4 - Stroke index 13 - 316mtrs.
Another reasonably easy hole again all downhill with 2 bunkers either side of the fairway to greet your drive off the tee should you not be straight. Those trees still there.
Altorreal Golf Hole 5. Par 3 - Stroke index 9 - 144mtrs.
Uphill with a tiered green. Try not to hit over the green because it's a long way back up.
Altorreal Golf Hole 6. Par 5 - Stoke index 1 - 534mtrs.
First of the Par 5s. Tight off the tee with the fairway going slightly left, scrub to the right and trees to the left. Out of bounds all the way down the right hand side. After some 400+mtrs you have a lake which needs to be crossed in order to reach the green.

Golf Altorreal - Green on Hole Five
Altorreal Golf Hole 7. Par 4 - Stroke index 7 - 362mtrs.
Scrub all down the right, trees of course to the left (those that were on Hole 6) leading up to a tiered green protected by a bunker.
Altorreal Golf Hole 8. Par 3 - Stroke index 11 - 178mtrs.
Out of bounds to the left and yes they are there on the right (more trees).
Altorreal Golf Hole 9. Par 5 - Index 5 - 489mtrs.
Again out of bounds to the left and it is not possible to see the green as the tight fairway is slightly up hill. Having then reached the slight downhill the green can be seen surrounded by, yes, trees and shrubs, at this stage you still do not know that water lurks to the right of the green, the same water that you will contend with again when you reach the 18th.

Golf Altorreal - Fairways of 9th & 18th.

Altorreal Golf Hole 10. Par 3 - Stroke index 18 - 172 mtrs.
Is reached by going past the Club House over the main road and here you have the easiest hole on the course. Scrub/trees to the left and right and if you over hit the green you will be in shrubs!
Altorreal Golf Hole 11. Par 5 - Stroke index 2 - 468mtrs.
A wide fairway starting downhill then very much uphill. Having gone up hill, there is out of bounds to the right, you will then see the flag BUT not the green, because it is protected by bunkers hiding behind small mounds. More trees to the left and behind the green.

Golf Altorreal - Fairway on hole 7.
Altorreal Golf Hole 12. Par 5 - Stroke index 12 - 436mtrs.
Yes ... my favourite. With a raised tee position and a long drive you can reach the green in 2 because it is very much downhill but beware the green is protected by trees to both the left and right and you have another small lake on the right to contend with just prior to the green. The fairway has again trees and out of bounds to the left and a mountain side to the right.
Altorreal Golf Hole 13. Stroke index 6 - Par 4 - 371mtrs.
Dog leg to the left. Keep your tee shot to the left but not that left otherwise . mind the bunkers that are situated in the middle of the fairway. Having got your tee shot away you then once again have to worry about water just short of the green on the right, and a bunker to the left hand side.
Very tight green. Great hole.
From here you need to cross the main road again to ...
Altorreal Golf Hole 14. Par 4 - Stroke index 14 - 344mtrs.
Trees to the left and right of the fairway with 2 bunkers to greet your tee shot? Slightly down hill from here to the green which also has sand protecting most of it.
Altorreal Golf Hole 15. Par 4 - Stroke index 8 - 374mtrs.
The usual exists on either side of the fairway which for once is reasonably straight, bunkers of course are where they should be; and the green is on a ridge, so beware you do not go off the back or the sides, why?, scrub/rough!

Golf Altorreal - Fairway on Hole Nine.

Altorreal Golf Hole 16. Par 4 - Stroke index 10 - 357mtrs.
A dog leg to the right. Plenty of fairway to play with off the tee and with the right shot, the green can be reached without trouble in 2. But beware the green is protected by 2 bunkers.


Nearly home...


Altorreal Golf Hole 17. Par 3 - Stroke index 16 - 148mtrs.
Still trees to the left and right and a green fully protected by bunkers.
Altorreal Golf Hole 18. Par 4 - Stroke index 4 - 359mtrs.
The tee shot here is into a reasonably narrow fairway which does open up before again narrowing into the green. The green is covered by a bunker and the lake that you met on the 9th. This 18th green is one of the largest on the course but is on different levels, so ball placement is essential.

Final comments : Altorreal Golf is a great course that is extremely narrow, trees and scrub that go on forever and of course the first cut to either side of the fairways that make the fairways even narrower. Altorreal Golf is a thinking course ... and a course that needs lots of concentration.

Enjoy ... it's worth it.
