La Finca is fairly young in the golf course world, opening its doors in 2002. Since then, it has proven to be one of the most successful golf courses in Costa Blanca.
La Finca has an 18 hole championship golf course designed by renowned Spanish designer Pepe Gancedo. It is a golf course with generous fairways and spectacular greens with a great design and variety of contours. The condition of the greens is excellent all year round. While other big name venues tend to get most of the attention in Spain, this is certainly a course not to be missed.
La Finca is one of our favourites here at Golf Villa Rentals and a very popular destination. The fairways are wide and the rough is no danger so you can really open up the shoulders and have a go off the tee. However, the challenge really begins when you get to your second shot. Numerous water hazards, lakes, well designed bunkers and even island greens all protect the putting surfaces. The putting surfaces themselves are superb and you can certainly find yourself facing some challenging putts on slippery surfaces.
One of our favourite holes in all of the Costa Blanca is the 5th at La Finca – a challenging par 5 to say the least! A long down hill tee shot to a fairly wide fairway will leave you with the choice of trying to reach an island green in two or laying up for a far safer wedge in. For the shorter hitters, it gets no easier as a well judged lay up is required. A fantastic hole that you could just play over and over again.
The practice facilities are designed and maintained to a good standard with the driving range being around 270 yards in length. The putting green is kept in fine condition and a true credit to the complex with a spectacular surface to practise on. There is also a short-game area to practise those all important pitch shots.
Overall, a fantastic complex and one you will thoroughly enjoy.
