Located at the heart of the golfing paradise of Costa Blanca in southeastern Spain, Las Ramblas stands out as a popular destination for golf tourists and home to an international community. This is in spite of having Spain's current no. 1 golf course at Las Colinas Golf and Country Club as its neighbor and around 20 other championship courses a mere 30 minutes drive away. Las Ramblas golf community is a fantastic location to buy or rent with many fabulous golf properties available for sale.
Las Ramblas not only offers a world-class championship course that is very challenging, but it also has quality development in the surrounding areas. Like its neighboring course the Villamartin, exclusive urbanization has developed surrounding the 18-hole woodland golf course. Many of the new golf properties in Las Ramblas such as apartments, semi-detached golf houses, and golf villas benefit from the stunning view of the golf course with the panoramic view of the Mediterranean coast adding to the charm. The golden sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are just a mere 10 minutes away.
In addition, the World Health Organization in 1986 recommended the climate of the Costa Blanca area as one of the most equitable in the world. It is neither too hot nor too cold in both summer and winter. The average temperature hovers at 20C (68F) and it boasts 325 days of sunny weather. This makes it an ideal destination for golfing all year round. A perfect place for active retirees or those pursuing an active lifestyle. This has contributed to continued development within the Las Ramblas golf community providing a wide variety of golf properties for sale
The centerpiece of Las Ramblas is the Las Ramblas Golf Course. Ranked no. 55 among the Top 100 Golf courses in Spain 2019-20, this par 72, 18-hole championship course was designed by no less than the Picasso of Golf, Jose Pepe Gancedo. The course distinguished itself to be a thinking man's course as it pressures you to evaluate your strategy at each hole. Hazards dot the landscape of a narrow fairway leaving very little margin for error. One mistake can affect a heavy toll. This is a course played using irons, and accuracy is the name of the game rather than distance. It is a demanding course known to test the most seasoned golfer. But fun to play even for a beginner.
Las Ramblas is owned by the Golf Quara group which also owns La Finca and Villamartin golf courses providing visitors and guests access to play in all three courses. All are available for holiday golf and are open to the public. Reservations are done through La Finca.
Other amenities include a clubhouse with a good view of the golf course and a restaurant that offers salads and finger foods along with healthy options. Also available is a practice range where you can hone your skills and a golf academy for children manned by a professional golfer. A Pro Shop is on hand for your golfing needs as well as buggies and clubs for hire.
But this resort is not only for golfers. A wide range of activities and entertainment is accessible for all the families within a short distance. There are water parks in Torrevieja and Ciudad Quesada, dozens of awesome golden sandy beaches such as Cabo Roig, Campoamor, and La Zenia, and newly developed shopping and leisure activity centers. In addition, the historic and culturally rich cities of Alicante, Cartagena, and Murcia are all under an hour's drive away. Truly a captivating place to live a Mediterranean lifestyle.
