Villamartin Golf Club
Villamartin Golf Club has been challenging players since its inauguration in 1972. The course was constructed by the aptly named Mr. Putmann and hosted the 1994 Mediterranean Open. Villamartin lies slightly inland about 12 kilometres from Torrevieja. It is one of the most popular areas of the Orihuela Costa with both holidaymakers and resident expats. Directly next door to the club is the excellent Villamartin Plaza. Here there are a selection of shops and some of the best bars and restaurants in Orihuela Costa. It also boasts numerous holiday apartments.
Villamartin Golf Club Course
The course enjoys a commanding position among rolling hills and valleys with views to the sea. During their round of golf players will find welcoming shade among the many pine trees. You will need to be on top of your game though as the squirrels are ruthless spectators. The par for the course is 72 and the total length 6,005 metres. The front nine holes have the best views as they’re located at the highest part of the course. The second nine holes of Villamartin Golf Club can be quite tricky, with deep (brancas) ravines coming into play on several holes.

Within the grounds of Villamartin Golf Club is a large natural grass driving range. Situated near the clubhouse, players can warm up on a well maintained practice area and putting green.

Hungry visitors can enjoy views over the 18th hole while enjoying a meal from the well chosen a la carte menu.
