Villa Padierna Golf Club Los Flamingos »
Los Flamingos Golf Course has an excellent upkeep and spectacular views. This 18 hole, 5,714 meter par 71 course, was designed by the renowned architect Antonio Garcia Garrido and it boasts a pristine landscape, with lots of different varieties of trees and spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.
A distinctly Tuscan feel has been created around the course, with many small cypress trees having been planted. The inclusion of occasional marble columns and statues also gives this undulating layout some distinctly classical touches – all very much in keeping with the palatial Club House, the Hotel Villa Padierna.
The greens are generous in size; the fairways are narrower on the first part of the course, so accurate tee shots are essential and good quality approach play is also needed; the bunkers are filled with crushed white marble sand; the fairways are covered in Bermuda, except on certain holes where grass has been used, whilst the greens and tees are covered in Penncross.
There are an average number of bunkers, including a lot very close to or just in front of greens. These are bowl-shaped, have medium coarse sand and are not particularly deep. The greens are quite soft, large, a few tiered, mostly undulating but not severely so. About half the greens are elevated to a degree, but given their large size there is always a good chance of landing on some part of the green. This is neither a parkland course, nor a hilly course, but half-way in between.
