Baviera Golf Course (Spain)
The course has some surprises in store to keep players on their toes and intelligence and strategy are the name of the game here.The signature hole is the 4th; a par 5 of 500m, where 2 lakes come into play, one covering an expanse of 15,000m2 and the other protecting entry to the green.
The ninth hole is one of the most difficult, a par three heading upwards. A well hit ball must fly over a stream and a lake on the lower end, and fall on a green with a narrow approach. If the shot falls short, the only option is an Alpine approach, sharply upwards from the high rough. To the left, bushes and plants, and to the right, more slopes to contend with.
The 11th is a pleasure to play. This is a beautiful par five, sloping downwards with the sea in the distance and surrounded by beautiful, natural vegetation. The tee-off requires power, with water to the right and out on the left, making for a narrow fairway that requires accuracy.
Baviera Golf is part of a very attractive residential development.A village of new villas, townhouses and apartments has been built around the golf course; all situated just meters away from the Caleta beach, marina and fishing port.
The comfortable hotel at the course provides a perfect base for exploring golf in the Granada, eastern Malaga and southern Almeria regions.
