Review of the Las Colinas golf course - by David Winder.
This beautiful course situated only a few kilometres from San Miguel, Los Montesinos & Torrevieja is designed by American, Cabel B.Robinson and managed by Troon Golf and is currently rated in the top 100 Courses of Europe.
Surrounded by hills and set in a valley with good width fairways undulating greens and something unusual 5 different tee platforms, yes, Black playing off 6376mtrs., White off 6033mtrs., Yellow off 5664mtrs., Blue off 5159mtrs., & Red playing off 4701mtrs., allowing one to play a different game whenever you visit, with a Par 71, 35 off the front 9 and 36 off the back. Something you will not see anywhere else on the Costa’s.
There are a number of holes on the Las Colinas Course that will always stay in my memory and I would like to share them with you and I will give them, in hole order.
Las Colinas Hole 3. Great hole, Par 5 and 481mtrs.off the yellow tees, a left sided buggy path running the whole length of the hole keeps you playing to the right because the green cannot be seen from the tee but beware, to the right, you have numerous bunkers followed by a lake and a stream running into another lake that protects the green which has 3 bunkers to the back of the green but also beware,
Las Colinas Hole 7. A very short Par 3 at 105mtrs off the yellows but…..the tee box is in the sky and you have to contend with trees protecting the green all round. Have you ever had a hole in 1?, well this a good one to do it on.
Las Colinas Hole 11. A great Par 5 at 536mtrs. off the Yellow tee and stroke index 1. Say no more, you will enjoy it.
Las Colinas Hole 14. Par 3 155mtrs. but very little fairway, a lake protecting the green to the right and the rear . Ah! It has a fairly dry pebble stream all across the front of the green which could see your ball going anywhere, also a small bunker to the left running into the lake and a large bunker to the right of the green. Great Hole!
Just five holes that bring lots of memories, mainly bad!.
But take it from me Las Colinas has lots to offer try it you will not be disappointed.
