Lo Romero Golf
Located near the town of Pilar de la Horadada on the southern border of the Costa Blanca, the picturesque Lo Romero Golf Course has earned the nickname of Golf Island due to its 18th hole being completely surrounded by a lake. Its location is just a short drive from the popular Mar Menor, an inland sea formed by two peninsulas that almost meet, leaving just a narrow channel for boats entering and exiting the Mediterranean sea.
Lo Romero Golf Course
The 18 hole course has a par of 72 that is distributed into 4 par 3's, 10 par 4's and 4 par 5's. It starts with a relatively easy par 4 with an elevated tee that gives players a good view of the downhill fairway that makes for a long roll of the ball. The wind factor on hole 4 can be quite tricky but due to its layout is considered to be the easiest hole on the course, with long shooting players often scoring a birdie. Hole 10 is the longest with a distance of 506 metres from the yellow markers, and hole 16 a downhill par 4 with spectacular views of the Mar Menor. Then ladies and gentlemen you have the make or break final hole on its own island which is clearly visible from the tee but still a huge mental challenge.
Lo Romero Golf Facilities
The course offers a great practice area with drink vending machines and ablutions. There are three natural grass practice platforms with space for 30 golfers, a covered long game area, chipping green, two putting greens and practice bunkers.
At Lo Romero Golf their academy offers adult classes for beginners as well as advanced courses for the more experienced player. There is also a junior academy with courses for all ability levels and organised monthly tournaments to keep the young ones keen and competitive. All courses for both adults and juniors are flexible and available for individuals and groups.
The location of Lo Romero Golf makes it a great course to visit for families or groups, as those wishing to play a round of golf can do so whilst others can spend time exploring the beaches and attractions of Pilar de la Horadada. The town offers a number of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and places of interest include the archaeological museum and three well preserved old watchtowers, an early warning system against pirate attacks in days gone by.
The Mar Menor inland sea is a mecca for wind and board sports and the mineral rich mud deposits in the north, near the town of San Pedro del Pinatar attracts visitors from far and wide who come for mud baths that are believed to cure a number of ailments.
