La Envia Golf
La Envia Golf & Country Club runs the length of a valley with the surrounding mountains shielding the course from any wind – creating superb golfing conditions.
Palm trees, Mimosa trees and many indigenous plants, flowers and shrubs run the length of the fairways and beyond, giving the impression of a vibrant oasis in the heart of a spectacular desert.
The course stretches over undulating terrain, with numerous bunkers, water features and carefully positioned greens to present the golfer with an interesting test of their skill and ability. A buggy is normally recommended.
Furthermore, La Envia Golf is noted for the care of its interesting and challenging greens, many of which are raised, designed to bring a mixture of fun and difficulty to your round.
The front nine can be described as relatively flat, longish holes, especially the 2nd and the 5th which will help prepare you for the back nine – though they are shorter in distance they require a more thoughtful approach to each hole.
Holes 12, 13 and 14 – known as La Envia´s “Amen Corner” – do allow for the possibility of a birdie or two, though they can just as easily ruin your card!
The La Envia Golf course opened in 1994 and was designed by Francisco Mendoza Montero.
