Situated on the outskirts of Benidorm and set in one of the most exclusive resorts on the Costa Blanca, Villaitana Golf comprises two 18 hole courses designed by the much respected and highly talented golfer Jack Nicklaus who, since his retirement from the professional golf circuit now manages one of the foremost golf course design companies in the world. The two courses form part of the truly stunning four star Meliá Villaitana Resort that has been built to resemble a Mediterranean village, and with its superb facilities it practically is a village.
Villaitana Golf Courses
The courses have been named after Benidorm's main beaches and the larger of the two, Campo de Golf de Levante has a length of 6,576 metres and a par of 72 with wonderful greens, wide fairways and panoramic sea and mountain views. Built on the picturesque green slopes of a valley boasting lush vegetation and pine forest, Campo de Golf de Poniente is a lot shorter at 3,858 metres but with a par of 62 is a challenging course that requires greater short iron use.
