LA TORRE GOLF
Nicklaus Design – designed and built this fantastic 18-hole par 68 golf course. This course’s wide fairways pre-dominate and contrast with the great bunkers and lakes. Although the course is not very long, 5,403 metres from the white tees, it requires a lot of attention, especially on all the greens, as they are very well defended by bunkers and lakes with the turtle shell shape of the greens that can carry the ball into the obstacles that protect them.
A course with consistent and fast greens, surrounded by bunkers and strategically located lakes. Greens that reject the ball if it has not been struck with precision, its turtle shell shapes make the ball roll to obstacles. Without a doubt, an ideal course for a strategic game, exciting and precise. All holes have a choice of five tees which makes it much more fun depending on the level of each player.
If something stands out on La Torre Golf course is its six par 3’s. Six holes that require a very accurate shot to be able to leave with a par. The first par 3 that we find on the course is the 3rd hole, 164 metres from the yellow tee. The hole is on a rise with a green well protected by numerous bunkers. Hole 5 is only 131 metres but is defended by a large bunker that we will have to carry to reach the platform of the green, to go through the green would give us a huge problem because of the vegetation that sur-rounds it. The 9th hole of 145 metres is a difficult hole with water on the right and in front of the green. Hole 11, index 4 at 170 metres is one of the most difficult on the course, water on the right and out of bounds on your left and its green has a prominent form of turtle shell that can take the ball into the lake. Hole 15 at 139 metres may be the easiest, but you cannot relax as its all out of bounds down the left. The 17th hole of 153 metres has every-thing, side water, bunkers and out of bounds on the left, a challenge requiring precision
