No maintenance

Mar menor is the worst golf course in the area fairways look as though they have not been cut fit months Anumbrr of bunkers have been out of action for months greens full of pitch marks All the local Gnk courses are in much better condition and worth a visit Avoid Mar Menor at all costs it is a good course ruined by bad management

Mar Menorz

We played 3days, at Mar Menor, Hacienda and La Torre, all part of the Nicholas group of 6 courses at the start of October.

The weather was perfect but the courses had too many bunkers, and in between the bunkers there was more sand.

The bar at Mar Menor wasn’t cheap and the Italian restaurant had to refund 2 out of 10 meals due to undercooked food.

Always full

Mar Menor is the easiest place on the Nicklaus Trail. It runs constantly along the building and leaves hardly any views. That the place is so frequented (a four-flight after another), is probably also related to the fact that the Mar Menor Resort is the only one completely created and with the central hotel has a lively center.

The course has many very similar tracks and you have to like to play between all the safety nets. The "Amen Corner" on the tracks 13/14/15 is a bit more generous and interesting.

With consistent avoidance of bunkers a good score is always possible. The fairways can be played well even in dry weather. The greens are fast and huge. The bunkers are not quite as dominant as in the other places. Water comes into play only laterally if at all.

If you have booked a longer stay in Mar Menor, you should not only limit yourself to the pitches of the Nicklaus Trail, but also look into the surrounding area. There are a lot of other beautiful golf courses with some very different characteristics.

Jack Nicklaus Trail

The course is one of 6 courses on the Jack Nicklaus Trail. All 6 places are characterized by very similar stalk elements. "Did you play one, do you all know".

All squares are surrounded by villa settlements - a spoiled ball also likes to land in a front yard. The club houses have all the drawbacks, buggy bar or halfway house was not found on any of the courses.

You can definitely play one, two or three of the places and have fun - but you do not have to do any more.

Well

We played an 18 hole round in July 2018.

The place is flat. The layout almost boring. Greens were way too long, so dull.
Quality (1 Excellent, 2 Good, 3 Satisfying, 4 Well, 5 Too bad about time and money):
Deductions 3
Fairways 3
Greens 3
Conclusion: Can you save yourself. 3 holes around a small lake are nice, the rest can not do anything. The place does not fit the 5 star hotel.
Showers and clubhouse are also not special.
Cart - not necessary.

Great hotel but lousy place

This is the worst of the 6 places, the first 9 are cruel you feel like an angler between the villas only nets, the second 9 go as they are between the apartments and yet very attractively laid out.

But the biggest drawback is that they have to wait at each hole and be normal for 5-6 hours.
We do not understand the golfer wrestling around this place although the hotel offers a free shuttle to the other places.

I would only play their place as Twilight, the second 9 and then in the clubhouse would rather drink a beer.

Nice to play, but nothing special

We stayed at Mar Menor Golf Resort end of Nov 17 for 10 days. The corresponding course is nice to play, but in comparison to the other GNK places the most boring. He is also the most frequented. Unfortunately, this is also noticeable in the many pitch marks on the greens and the many footprints in the bunkers.
Otherwise very well maintained. In the clubhouse you will be served friendly and can eat delicious snacks.

Between houses

The first 9 holes are mostly between the apartments, the second 9 are a little bit freer.

He is nothing special compared to the other places.

Hotel was very good, breakfast always plentiful, the half board could be taken in the different restaurants. Recommended the menu in Mizu, which was completely changed on the second visit.
The Italian is an average, the steakhouse takes an extra charge for the beef steak, pork and turkey it was. The nomad is very good.

Golfing yes, hotel apartment no

Golf courses are not easy to play except Mar Menor, but very well maintained and in June not too crowded.
If you booked apartment, you are guest 2nd class. Cleaning and linen only once a week, which is acceptable.
Towels and toilet paper also 1 x per week is not acceptable.
After consultation with the front desk the lapidary reply - you have not booked in the hotel.
Also guests of the apartments only in the clubhouse breakfast not in the hotel.
Breakfast very English and Spartan. Eggs from powder, ham unhealthy.
Apartment for 2 persons sufficiently equipped and practically furnished. Beds well.
Wifi times, sometimes no.
First impression of the apartment house not so great. In the years come and water damage in the stairwell which would have to be repaired.
The hotel is fully English. Who is not powerful in the English language is lost.
I speak Spanish, which was ignored however by the waiters and the remaining staff completely.
Actually, we thought we were in England, but this was only disproved by the weather.
Conclusion of the travel golfing very well, intercontinental apartments not again.

Siegfried is right

We were here for Jack Niclas trail round in 2016 and the 2017th In short, Mar menor is the enzige the places from which I must advise against. It is exactly as described previously, and indeed all the time. The other places are highly recommended from playing and layout, especially Saurines, La Torre and El Valle has been a good experience.
Particularly outrageous these 3 euro are additional fee for a daily license alleged the span Golf Association, which is simply mischief, no other place on the entire coast (except 5 Plätzes IRM network) calculates the (extra).

Mar Menor Golf - or "how, there is a golf etiquette?

In the third year, we are now trying to play golf here as "Residents" ... frustrating.
Since 2017 there is now a Marshal! Its tasks differ from those apparently entirely Marshals in D.
The flights will be clocked at a distance of 9 minutes, so that swift game is absolutely necessary. Unfortunately this does not happen in Mar Memor but.
Calmly 5 bunker shots first try then quoted another 4 putts, the score calmly on the green.
After that there are three flights on a hole on the road, the fourth already approaching...
By waving... forget it, no, we take the trolley onto the green, rolling between green and bunker through and looking eternally several balls.
Marshall in sight... nope! Why?
The northerners, who are mainly go here to have a bewundeswerte patience.
We do not have to know it from D differently and back out to the other GNK places, preferably In the afternoon, then we are there almost always without flights directly in front of or behind the move.
The 3 € extra charge for each round to the span. Golf Association (day license) is surprising and dubious. No Dutch golfers pay such a fee in D. A case for the EU Court -discrimination foreign golfers.
The marshal asked about it - the finger movement make in response to the money... says it all.
Nice game!

To forget!

Fairways rock hard and yellow. Greens full of sand and little directional stability. The surrounding eyesores in the form of apartment complexes do not contribute to appreciation.

Gone with the Wind...

Bunker dominant. With the exception of the bunkers and the prevailing strong winds, turned the place for us no great challenge. Water rarely comes into play, wide fairways and slightly undulating greens characterize the course. Fairways, greens and bunkers are maintained. The place is very crowded. Small brown spots are evidence of many old pitch marks. The pace of play was extremely slow; good 5 hours for the round are more than marginal. The environment is divided into two, beautiful and ugly buildings are in balance. The partially laterally to protect the houses attached great fishing nets on the railways improve the overall impression is not necessarily. We played in March for € 55 pp.

No need

In January 2016, we found a significantly dubbed Resort Course with pushy, not always pretty peripheral development. According fairways and greens apere with the famous "Vesuvius" effect Senn not be stung by placing a wooden plate the holes. We play the Niclas trail, the only reason to play the crowded place. Not again, in the area are other places a dream.

October 12

The course is located right next to the Intercontinental Hotel.
The care of the flat fairways were excellent.
Unfortunately, the houses with associated facilities to be built close to the golf course. Huge nets protect the residents absentee golf balls.
The 19th Hole can really forget.
If there was something to eat, then just frozen.

October 2012

We played the course along with the other 5 Nicklaus Design courses. The designers have nowhere spared bunkers, often exceed the dimensions of the fairway areas, so that it is difficult to avoid the bunkers.
Kept place in top condition. The easiest of the six.
The staff should be informed more friendly and better. The crowd is predominantly British and very friendly and communicative, but unfortunately the restaurant is also very British: English breakfast, fast food, fish & chips, etc. Spanish cuisine have to look around, best in Los Alcazares.

Gulf between cottages

Good and easy to play space in fair condition. The associated IC Hotel Mar Menor is recommended without restrictions, very beautiful architecture and amenities (spa area). Sorry, but we see very little scenery, for the complete range of holiday homes, "residential", and apartments.

October 2010

Golf Course early October 2010 4 x hits - booked as part of a Packetes about the hotel IC Mar Menor. Course is a resort and is in good condition and plays well. The course is not long ago remodeled and expanded. The enhancements are still very "raw" state. However, no place and no place where to spend his vacation for a second time.
