The Desert Springs Golf Club
The Indiana Golf Course
The Beauty of Golf
The beauty of golf, the aspect, which separates it from other sports, lies in the variety of terrain over which it is played. While golfers enjoy golf of many types, from links to parkland, surely the world's most spectacular courses are those laid out over rugged desert landscapes. The contrast, between the beautifully prepared and manicured playing areas and the arid yet vividly coloured desert, captures the very essence of why golf stands apart from other sports.
Golf holidays in Spain don't get much better than this.
Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, The Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to the full USGA specifications and quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer. It presents unforgettable views, and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.
Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the “desert springs” and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.
Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling, the further your shot is off the fairway, culminating in the dreaded “spiked lies”, so the course is both demanding and exhilarating. It offers a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.
The quality of the course was confirmed by its selection by the English Golf Union and currently by the Welsh Ladies Golf Union, as their “Spanish Home” and also by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, for whom Desert Springs hosted the 2004 Spanish Amateur Open and will be hosting the 2007 Open. Its Academy of Golf provides practice facilities, second to none, for National squad and County Union members.
