The Mar Menor Golf Resort is set within an ideal position in the Murcian countryside framed by a stunning mountain backdrop and only five minutes from the beautiful Mar Menor beach and its bustling town of Los Alcazares. The resort is dominated by the brightly coloured Mediterranean style villas and apartments which are lined with palm trees and exotic plants and surrounded by a fantastic Jack Nicklaus designed 18 hole golf course.
This is a well established resort making it a popular choice for family holidays with guests returning year after year. At the centre of the resort you will find the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel with facilities such as a spa, gym and swimming pool and guests can also enjoy use of the hotels bars and restaurants. To complement the onsite facilities, ‘The Boulevard’ is situated just outside the gates of the resort within walking distance and offers an alternative selection restaurants and pubs for an enjoyable evening out.
If you do fancy a round of golf whilst on holiday, you will not be disappointed by Mar Menor. The Mar Menor course has been designed by two golfing greats and you will enjoy playing 2 distinct 9's on the same course! Not a long course for its Par 72, however with the maturity of the native grasses, shrubs, palm trees and its own 'Amen Corner', Mar Menor is a good test of golf.
Mar Menor gives you a gentle start on what should be a straight forward 1st hole. Don't let this full you, as the second is an excellent and challenging Par 3, followed by a long par 4, where a straight tee shot is required setting you up for a long shot over the lake to a well protected green.
Outside of the resort, the town of Los Alcazares with its beaches and shallow waters of the Mar Menor is a short 5 minute drive. The town has a lovely promenade where you can walk for miles with an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops to choose from. Alternatively you are only a 35 minute drive from the City of Murcia with its stunning cathedral and plazas - we highly recommend visiting whilst you are here.
Mar Menor Golf Resort is serviced by 2 international airports, 10 minutes from Murcia San Javier Airport and around 55 minutes from Alicante Airport.
Overall, the location and facilities of the Mar Menor Golf Resort make it a popular choice with families coming back year after year and we are sure you will feel the same after your first visit!
