Lo Romero Golf course is located close to the coastal town of Pilar de la Horadada, on the border of Murcia Province and Alicante.
It is an 18 hole, par 72 course, with a practice range and a temporary clubhouse.
Lo Romero may have taken a while to finally open it´s doors but as Club Murcia discovered the day after the course opened, the Golf Course is already a favourite with the local players. Club Murcia took four players to the course, two local Spanish PGA Professionals and two 12 amateurs.
Despite being less than 10 minutes from the Beaches of Torre de la Horadada, Lo Romero Golf is a remarkably lush Parkland style Golf Course which is in contrast to the new courses in Murcia. Situated 5 minutes from the AP7 motorway and on the regional border, Lo Romero is very accessible to players staying in Alicante and Murcia.
The course also has a large Driving range, a Putting Green, Chipping areas and practice Bunkers. There are also two Putting Greens located adjacent to the 1st and 10th Tee´s.
Weather Conditions: Mild with little to no breeze. Course Conditions: Very Good, Greens: Very Good.
Hole 18: Par 4 - Plays 356m off the Yellow Tees. The final hole at Lo Romero is the feature hole. The Tee position is elevated which affords the players a good look at the hole and the island Green in the distance. There is plenty of room to secure a good drive and with the down hill slope, players should run on to leave a short iron approach to the Green. There are only a couple of small bunkers on the right hand side of the fairway and players leaving around 100m to the Green should feel confident of securing a Par. Players further back will have a more difficult and nervy approach. Accuracy is key to finishing this hole without incident however distance control is what will catch out most players. The real danger is not failing to clear the water hazard but failing to hold the Green and running into the water off the back of the Green. This is a difficult finishing hole and players who find themselves short off the Tee will be well advised to lay up and hope to secure a Par by making a good Up and Down. A great finishing hole.
In summary: Lo Romero is a nice looking Golf Course and a very different challenge to compared to some of the other courses. The practice facilities are very good and with a permanent Clubhouse and Hotel on the horizon, the course looks set to become a popular addition to the region. Pilar de la Horadada already has a great Sports facilities and town runs numerous sporting events through the year. The addition of Golf should serve to increase the sporting events in the town and widen the interest in the game.
