El Valle Golf Course is an 18 hole professional course by Nicklaus Design who are world famous for pioneering courses which merge into the landscape. El Valle Golf Resort is located in a beautiful desert valley. The golf course has holes which are bordered by other holes, and not housing or built up areas, creating an open and natural setting. Instead of length the course is oriented more toward creating difficulties and challenges for the player. This course puts a premium on accuracy, not power, and favours the intelligent player who can manage his or her game, thus rewarding innovative and bold shots. El Valle Golf Resort includes groups of subtly shaped bunkers that sink into the desert landscape surrounded by natural rocks. Two lakes that flow into brooks and cascades also come into play.
