Alicante Golf was officially opened on 23 January 1998 in a ceremony led by its designer, Severiano Ballesteros.
Alicante Golf is on the Mediterranean coast, next to the spectacular San Juan beach and only 5 minutes from the centre of Alicante. A green haven set in a residential area, the course features wide tree lined fairways.
The course includes six par-three holes, six par-four holes and six par-five holes, meaning that no two consecutive holes are played with the same par in any one round. This format makes play more varied and entertaining with birdie opportunities aplenty! Seve also designed 5 large lakes affecting 12 of the 18 holes, resulting in an attractive and challenging course for golfers of all abilities.
Alicante Golf completed a major overhaul of its greens between 2004 and 2008 which involved rebuilding, and improving their design and other aspects such as watering, drainage, landscaping and shape. Following these renovations, the course now has 18 first-class greens, including the new green at hole 18, providing a stunningly dramatic finale to a round of golf and visible from the rooms in the Husa Alicante Golf Hotel.
Other great features of the course are the practice area, with a natural grass driving range and a fully-equipped short game area, plus the ruins of a Roman villa dating back to the 1st century BC at Hole 14. The ruins came to light during building work on the course and the ball has to clear them to get to the green!
