Infinitum | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

The Infinitum Resort is one of the best in Northern Spain. The resort plays host to 45 sublime holes of golf, of which the two 18-hole championship courses are used each year for the Final Stage of DP World Tour Q-School. There is also a 9-hole course, while the Infinitum Beach Club is known as one of the best in Europe. 

Major champion Greg Norman, now the face of LIV Golf, was the man to design and construct the two championship courses - the Hills Course and the Lakes Course. Both courses work their way around the hills and landscape of northern Spain, with plenty of hazards and trees for golfers to navigate their way around. The Ruins Course, the 9-hole course at Infinitum, provides a shorter golfing experience, with wonderful views of the archaeological Roman ruins.

Along with the golf courses, the resort is also the home to a stunning Golf Academy and Training Centre. There are two full-size driving ranges, all of which play off grass tees. There are also some incredible short game areas, with chipping, putting and pitching areas, including bunker practise. 

The only issue with Infinitum for visitors is that there is not a hotel on the resort. All the accommodation comes in the form of residential properties, whether it be apartments or villas. There are hotels in the nearby region, but it does not provide the same feel as it would staying in the same resort as you play your golf.

Infinitum Overview | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

A DP World Tour Golfing Venue

45 holes, spread over three courses which complement each other perfectly. Two of them - the Lakes Course and the Hills Course - were designed by the golfing legend Greg Norman, with first class facilities. The two courses are the permanent headquarters of the Final Stage of the DP World Tour Q-School. There is also a 9-hole track - the Ruins Course - among the Roman archaeological remains. 

The Lakes Course
The Par-71 Lakes Course is set into the natural landscape of the region. The Sequia Major, a collection of 14 lakes and wetlands, are a key part of the Lakes Course at Infinitum.

13 of the 18 holes on the Lakes Course are affected or run alongside the water, which is one of the most important ecosystems in the region. The closing hole is a stunning par-5 that is definitely a risk-reward hole. A slight dog-leg left from the tee, there is water to the left of the green, which makes going for it with the second shot a lot more difficult.

The Hills Course
The Hills Course, is a Par 72 lay-out, which features its very own ‘Amen Corner’. The Hills Course does not feature as much water as the Lakes Course, but accuracy from tee-to-green is key to scoring well. 

The 13th is the signature hole on the Hills Course. There is a narrow fairway, while water comes into play at the front left of the green. Thick rough, which has been left to grow due to the DP World Tour Q-School calling Infinitum home, is another danger. 14 follows, and it is a 220 yard par-3, the longest par-3 on the course. 

The Ruins Course
The Ruins Course is the third selection for golf at Infinitum, and it is one of the premium 9-hole lay-outs in Spain. The course winds through archaeological remains from more than 2,000 years ago. The par-3 6th is the shortest hole at the entire resort, measuring just 120 yards.

Infinitum Golf Academy

Thanks to its affinity with Q-School on the DP World Tour, the practice facilities at Infinitum are some of the best in the world. There are two driving ranges, several short game areas and three putting greens to allow players to properly practise before a round.

Both of the driving ranges feature natural grass-lined tees, providing a true experience of how the courses are going to play. Both then also have additional covered bays with mats, and those specifically designed for tuition and coaching.

The Hills and Lakes Course are both served by expansive short-game practice areas, with a wide selection of bunker shots to practise as well as multiple chipping and approach practice opportunities. There are also three putting greens to serve the three courses, with more than 1,500 square metres of perfection.

There is a team of PGA-qualified professionals working at the Infinitum Golf Academy, with the aim of helping every player that walks through the door. Flightscope and Sam Putt Lab are just some of the high-tech equipment that is being used at the Academy.

Infinitum Beach Club

The resort is home to the Infinitum Beach Club, which is a great place to relax. There are designated areas for families and adults to allow parties from all walks of life to enjoy their time at the Infinitum Beach Club.

The Signe Area is a space reserved for adults, while the Family Area allows the kids to enjoy the pools of the Beach Club. There are also Infinity Pools which allow relaxation.

Luxury Apartments

Infinitum is unique compared to the majority of the resorts on the NCG Top 100 European Golf Resorts list, in the fact that it does not have a hotel. The resort is a private residential resort, with apartments and villas for sale. 

The Llevant Apartments are a range of two-, three- and four- bedroom apartments which are surrounded by the woodlands and just minutes from the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. 

Both the Mestral and Ponent Villas come with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The Mestral Villas have a communal swimming pool located in the middle of the plot, while each Ponent Villa has its own separate private pool.
