The United Golf Resorts golf course at La Tercia and is located just off the C-3319 San Javier to Murcia highway. This is just a 9 hole course at the moment and thier are plans to extend to 18 (but no work has begun yet). This golf course has a unique ‘aqua’ driving range which is the only one of its type in Spain and which simply must be experienced by every golfer who visits this course. Good putting and chipping areas as well
Clubhouse Facilities and Services
Nice comfortable and friendly clubhouse with restaurant, very nice quiet setting
Course Review and Scorecard
This golf course was designed by Jose Gancedo who was also the designer of La Finca and you can see many of his ‘trademark’ features on this course including the variation in green size and shape and the additional 19th hole.
The course is planned to be an 18 hole layout but at present only the first nine holes are open for play and the scorecard is as shown below:
Hole Par Metres Metres Metres
1 4 394 381 333
2 3 180 171 141
3 5 571 535 487
4 3 109 97 75
5 5 484 463 418
6 4 294 287 248
7 3 205 188 147

The main feature of this golf course is the ‘Ramblas’ (dry river bed) which winds its way through the centre of the course.
The course designer has incorporated this as the main hazard
What the golfers will experience on this course is that the par 5 holes offer the biggest challenges for a variety of reasons
The course opens with a down hill par 4 hole of 381 metres which plays longer than you think and you must trust the distance markers on this course or you will continually be short.
The third hole is an absolute ‘brute’ at 535 metres (588 yards) particularly if played into the wind.
The 5th hole looks like a good birdie opportunity on the card but wait until you get to the green which only six metres wide and 50 metres long and undulating along its entire length.
The 8th and 9th holes sum up this golf course because the 8th is a long par 5 hole over water but with the narrowest of landing areas for the lay up shot and the 9th hole is a typical risk or reward hole where fortune may favour the brave if you go for the green or alternatively it could turn into a card ‘wrecker’
This is a new golf course and there are parts of the surrounding banks and hills which need time to mature and for the grass to grow but the tees and fairways are in a good condition and the greens in particular are some of the best in Murcia and this course is well worth playing for golfers of any standard.
