Las Colinas | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

Las Colinas is located in the southeastern corner of Spain, in a stunning region of the country. With views of the Mediterranean Sea and an incredible climate, Las Colinas is the perfect place for golf holidays, and you can bring the entire family with everything that is on offer at the resort.

The golf course is a stunning design by Cabell Robinson, who has had his hand in a number of incredible courses in Europe and the rest of the world. Robinson’s design for Las Colinas sees it wind its way around the central area of properties, and it can be played in a loop of 9 or 18, depending how guests are feeling. As well as the course, the short game area has been designed by DP World Tour winner Miguel Angel Jimenez, and the driving range has the state of the art TopTracer technology.

Away from the golf, there are plenty of other activities for you to have a go at. Adriano Tavelli's Tennis and Padel Academy has programs that adapt to your game and level, or you can take to the court yourself and have a game. There is also a gym, swimming pool and health centre, where you can enjoy a massage or treatment. 

Las Colinas Residences are unique. There is no main hotel at the resort, with the accommodation options coming in the form of either apartments or villas. They all sleep at least four, with some of the villas having their own private pool, making it perfect for a family holiday.

Las Colinas Overview | NCG Top 100 European Golf Resorts

Stunning Golf Course

World-renowned golf course architect Cabell Robinson was the man behind the championship golf course at Las Colinas, and it is another incredible work to add to his ever-expanding portfolio. The Par 71, 18-hole championship course is a tough test for golfers of all abilities, thanks to a variety of tees. 

The course is laid out in a circle, surrounding some of the villas and properties that call Las Colinas home. Thanks to its design, the front nine loops around the north side of the property, with the back nine looping round the south side, so the course can be played as just 9 holes with ease.

Water comes into play several times during a round at Las Colinas. The 3rd is the first time you’ll see the blue of the water hazards, on what is a par-5 that measures almost 575 yards from the tips. The 7th is a great par-3. It is the shortest hole on the property, and plays severely downhill from the tee, making it a tricky one for club selection. 

14 and 15 also see water, with the latter being more than 600 yards from the tips, before the 18th green being surrounded by water. Go for it in two, or risk losing a ball in the drink?

Las Colinas Golf Academy

The Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is also the home to a stunning Golf Academy, where under the guidance of Head Professional Samuel Curtis, golfers of all ages and abilities can improve their games.

There is a state of the art driving range at the Las Colinas Golf Academy from which Curtis and his team teach out of. The driving range is home to TrackMan technology, which allows for proper analysis of spin rates, distances and instant reviews of a golfer’s swing.

The short game area at the practice facility was designed by DP World Tour winner Miguel Angel Jimenez, and was built to the highest USGA specifications.
