Guide to Golf Courses in Moraira, Javea and Calpe

Costa Blanca Golf

There was a time when any self respecting golfer visiting Spain would head straight for the Costa Del Sol but over the last few years the standard of the existing courses on the Costa Blanca has increased and new ones have been created.

At present there are 13 golf courses on the ‘Costa Mediterranea’ (as it is increasingly being known as) and 4 (described below) are within easy reach of Moraira. All are affiliated to the Spanish Federation and, consequently, can validate members handicap internationally; all have clubs for hire to visitors and provide coaching.

Club de Golf ‘Don Cayo’

Built in 1976, near Altea, and designed by the famous team of Gregorio Sanz & Pedro Barber Lloret, this is a very strenuous par 72, 9 hole, course of 3,078 metres which has superb views with plans to extend into the hills making it 18 holes with a cable car link from the existing course.

Facilities include a magnificent clubhouse with bar and restaurant, social club, Billiards, Bridge lounge, swimming pool, tennis courts, golf classes, caddie-cart/buggy/club hire, putting green, practice ground and golf classes.

Club de Golf ‘Ifach’

Situated on the San Jaime Urbanisation on the coast road between Moraira and Calpe is this 9 hole, par 60, 3,540 m course, Green fees 25€ for 9 holes.

Set in a beautiful fertile valley with surrounding views of the most prestigious properties in Moraira, the Penon de Ifach and the sparkling blue Mediterranean. The world famous designer Javier Arana created the Ifach club to be short and tricky with numerous obstacles.

Many experienced golfers have remarked how deceptively difficult it really is, making it ideal for the holiday golfer who has little time but appreciates the challenge. There is a club bar with snacks, the Micheta restaurant, a large swimming pool and tennis courts.

Club de Golf ‘Javea’

Situated between Moraira and Javea (via Benitachell ) is another 9 hole course, par 72, 3,035 m, Green fees 30€ for 9 holes. Although slightly longer the course is quite flat, easier to play and not so tiring in the hot summer sun. This all-year course has been attractively planted and landscaped around the greens, has a driving range, putting green, heated swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, club bar and restaurant.

Situated inland near the area of Jesus Pobre on the back-road between Javea and Denia is 18 hole, par 72, 6,029 m, Green fees 60€ for 18 holes. Opened in 1991, the course was designed to “use all the clubs in the bag”.

Although almost absolutely flat it has many trees and water obstacles (canals and lakes – which provide the irrigation).

Facilities include driving range, putting green, motorised trolleys, clubhouse with club bar, lounge bar and restaurant, swimming pool, tennis and squash courts.
