El Saler - a nice place but nothing more!

The place benefits from the successful past. There are now some new courses in Spain that have much more to offer visually and playfully (e.g. Vistabella, Valle del Este...) Don't expect too much or you will be disappointed. Only the oversized bunkers leave an impression! Although we could not see why the place could get a top 2. Spain it was a nice day of golf.

Efforts, scores with a view

In principle a good place without exciting design.
A few nice views, tee boxes ok, fairways ok, greens with a few room for improvement but it's winter. Easily accessible from campsites.
Seen, experiencing a nice day of golf is not necessarily worth a detour.

Thank you Pitchmark!!!

...it doesn't need to be supplemented, everything has been said!
A Forest - Links Course Gem!
El Saler, which Miguel Ángel Jiménez describes as a "must play" course in Spain, is still one of the top ten in continental Europe for me! Every golfer who is in Valencia should (must) :-)
Have played El Saler once!

Best in Europe...

...ranks among the top 10 courses in Europe, after Valderrama No. 2 in Spain. It is one of the two "fake" links courses in Spain. This is one of the fake ones because of the umbrella pines, trees on a links course are uncommon, they don't match the characteristics of links courses. There are only 247 real links courses in the world, 211 of which are on British Island.

None of this plays a role for the excellent course. Javier Arana has only built a handful of courses, this one is his absolute masterpiece.

He was showered with praise at the opening, rightly so in our opinion. Bernhard Langer loves this course very much, at the Spanish Open in 1984 he only needed 62 strokes for a round - 10 under!!

We played two rounds for the first time in 2007, when the new clubhouse was under construction. Everyone was annoyed that this course wasn't on the list on the last trip to Spain - but it was understandable - the distance from Malaga would have been too great to travel by car.

We deliberately wanted to go to Valencia in 2007 - the sailing race for the "ugly pot" led to this combination trip. The America's Cup was about to start. It was very impressive to see the funds invested by the participants, the organizer and the city - amazing. Even the manhole cover with the logo was not missing.

The notes tell us that the two laps on this "links course" were great fun for us, very good scores, hardly any wind and pleasant temperatures. Two of us were under, if only 1 and 2 strokes, but still. Playing here is demanding, a number of courageous shots are required for a good score. The course itself was very dry - typical links - but still in a "green" good condition, provided a lot of additional meters. The greens were sharp, hard, directional and fast.

The drought meant that the leader and I were asked to stop smoking. We could understand that well - the whole country is under nature protection. In addition, if there is a lack of water, it is very difficult to fight a fire.

The conditions weren't that great this time, temperatures were rather cool, at times there was a lot of wind. We didn't like the semi and the sand traps that much. The course can take this well, you can overlook these minor flaws, the location and the layout deliver so much that you become generous.

Again we had great joy and fun - not about the scores

Have used the clubhouse and the adjacent hotel, were very satisfied.

We all give the maximum stars!!!

The one and two star ratings smell strongly of frustration ratings - are not appropriate. More on this in the ABAMA assessment - part on our own behalf.

Bad Condition

We are traveling with the camper in Spain and have been playing a different course every day for 2 weeks.
Unfortunately, although we did not want to eat dinner at the restaurant as usual, we could not stop for one night.
Furthermore, the place was in an unkempt condition as well as the clubhouse.
This was the worst place on our tour.

Best Place

Golf course: Beautifully, the fairways are gently rolling through pine forests. Towards the end of the first nine holes then a little left feeling, where you can catch one or the other sea view. The fairways are usually quite wide and pleasant to play.

Course condition: very good. Only the greens are a bit dull and slow, as they are not cut very short - but this is probably due to the season and the heat.

Conclusion: very good overall impression. The first nine holes are great, as the second can not quite keep up - but are still very nice.

Appearance and reality

The course is top of the design of the holes course. It is not for nothing that top tournaments have been played here. Fairways were in very good condition. Greens were visually beautiful, but the tempo an imposition for any golfer. You can expect a lot more from one of the most expensive places in the region. Shop, Caddy Master and also in the restaurant still has to be worked hard on the friendliness.
Would play the course when I'm in the Valencia region, but not a must.
Square Design 4.5
Greens 2.5
Fairways 4
Total 3.7 for the place

Place with two faces

We played in February 2018. The lanes with Links character on the sea were really great and also (maybe thanks to the dunes) a bit narrower and more winding than the wooded holes. At this the bunker placement and design was the most interesting, otherwise they came a bit wide and sluggish. The greens were in very good condition, but also hard to read. The fairways were almost consistently brown, but this is probably due to the grass variety, because we did not have the impression that they suffered from the lack of water, and you could easily beat them.

All in all a good but not outstanding place. We would clearly put him in the region behind La Galiana and on a par with El Bosque.

A top spot

Played on 25-30/10/2014

The place is not as manicured as Valderama, but you are welcome as a guest. The design is hard to beat, the condition was very good.
The highlight of the game are the well-defended and strongly undulating greens.

Very bad price / performance ratio of kurt red

Unfortunately there are still players who think they have come with the game of golf on the world. in life there are not only professionals or very good player, but also possibly beginner or forge paced. golfpsielen to enjoy and not stress. This comment also shows a certain degree of incompetence. sad.

Must play to stop.

I wanted the space even play for some time and had high expectations. Secretariat and starter friendly. It was the day not so full, we had no one behind us. I found the place already really hard at the 5 places on water (left) of the wind but is heavily into play. On the other hand, then the pine forest, where you realize that everything is grown for a long time. The fairways and bunkers were ok, but the greens battered, here you pay more for the design and not for the state space. We booked through an online agent, therefore the green fee was bearable.
We will be back!

El Saler??

Now I'm Surprised!
El Saler is very clear in my ranking behind Valderrama No. 2!
This place is the masterpiece of legänderen Javier Arana! He is a mix of magnificent old forest and parkland paths and genuine links holes with sod-wall bunkers pot! The place of this Rustic comes along and does not act like a new resort course it is clear! The sea breeze, the most ancient pine trees and pine trees and the dry, hard links railways turn this place! The golfer is extremely required and must be able to play many strokes to achieve a good result! For me personally, El Saler is a one of the best places in continental Europe!

Very poor price / performance ratio

I have played on 18.10.2014 and was very disappointed with the lousy state of the place. In a green fee of 105 Euros must you really expect more. In addition, the game was very slow, because obviously in front of us players were admitted without handicap. On top of annoyed me that the place team with vile noise entertained during the course of the majority of the tracks and the player has harassed.
Would not recommend the place for sure!

Sporting challenge

Played on 23 March 2013

Course design + + +
Location status + + +
Bunker (sand quality) -

Club House -
Pro Shop - (very little choice)

Tend a place for athletic golfer. Flat course without significant gradients rather narrow fairways. The view from about 4 holes on the sea is very beautiful.

Frequented. Tee time book in advance by telephone. All in all, very straightforward.

Spanish open..

In this square is an event of the European Tour in April 13 are carried out, we played one months before and were looking forward to the system. Club house of swank finest employees clearly overwhelmed. Place very nice but FAR from a links course, actually a slightly angehügelter, slightly above average parkland course with 4 holes near the dunes. that's it. Greens OK but far from sensational, pot bunkers with earthy sand (the tour had not previously detailed specifications for the bunker?) Clubhouse big, even bigger terrace, food and drinks from Frittenbude format. Cola for the round only in cans. All things that you certainly do not see on TV. Considering the last 30 km you have to consider carefully whether you absolutely must have played here over an hour of arrival Oliva on twisty country roads with roundabouts felt in 1000. Review Place 3 star, 4 star celebrity factor, Arroganzfaktor 6 star staff. Makes 4
