The amen corner of the course is at the 13th, 14th and 15th holes, where strategy and the wind are determining factors.

Designed by Javier Arana, this 18-hole, 72 par course has held a number of Spanish Opens and other tournaments. So what can it offer?
The fairways are outstanding, ample but with few off limits, and well positioned bunkers keep players on their toes. The room for error is small. The first 12 holes take the player through pine groves, with the last 6 arranged in a link style through dunes and along the scenic coastline where there is a punishing rough.
The most difficult hole on the course is the 6th. A par 4 at 404 metres it doglegs to the left and requires the utmost effort to reach the green in two swings
The major difficulties and the length of the course all demand concentration and skill. The level of the game has to be kept high as the slightest mistake at the trickier holes may make it impossible to get back on track. With patience and attention - the player may leave the victor.
