La Finca Golf Club is located close to the town of Orihuela and opened in 2001. This magnificent course designed by Jose Gancedo is THE course on the Costa Blanca to play. The course is only a short journey from the beach and also from its sister resorts of Villamartin and Las Ramblas. Designed to host top tournaments, La Finca has the greatest variety of greens of any course on the Costa Blanca, ranging in size from very large to very small. As a bonus feature, the course has a reserve hole so that, in the event that one of the holes has to be closed off unexpectedly, players are still able to complete a full 18-hole round. Several lakes with running water and reed beds along the course add beauty and difficulty to the game, making the course the home of a wide variety of migratory water birds, such as ducks and egrets. The interior of the course is home to olive and palm trees, reading a beautiful backdrop of vegetation with a distinctly Mediterranean flavour. Golf at La Finca costs a little more than average for the area but the experience makes it well worth while. A “must” to play.
