Here are some of the golf courses you can play in The Mediterranean

Alicante, Spain, Alicante Golf Club, 6,236 metres, par 72

Seve Ballesteros designed this course which has 6 par 5s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 3s. The course has great visual appeal and the finishing holes are a very good test. Some of the wide fairways are lined with apartments but overall there is an impression of space and a good golfing choice.

Barcelona, Spain, Club de Golf Masia Bach, 6,039 metres, par 72

Designed by José María Olazábal, this course is built on hilly terrain so you need to hit the ball straight otherwise you will find trouble on either side of the fairway. Some of the greens are very large so the position of the pin might decide which club to use. Golfers will enjoy the challenge this course presents and although not too hilly, a buggy might be useful for crossing the rugged terrain between holes.

Barcelona, Spain, PGA Golf de Catalunya, 6,588 metres, par 72

PGA Golf de Catalunya was opened in June 1999 and it was designed by Angel Gallardo and Neil Coles. It is a challenging course but everyone will enjoy it whatever your handicap. Scenically it is different from many courses as it is a wooded area with many undulations and some steep slopes.

Cannes, France, Cannes Mougins, 6,400 metres - par 72

The Cannes Mougins golf course was opened in 1926. The course winds its way between two magnificent forests and it is crossed by a river and has several water features. Open fairways and lengthy greens make this a great golfing experience not to be missed.

Civitavecchia, Italy, Le Querce Golf Club, 6,500 metres - par 72

This beautiful golf course is in the part of Italy that the Romans call Alto Lazio and there are wonderful views over the surrounding area. The fairways are lined with oak trees - hence its name - and the natural contours and hilly terrain make this a course where careful club selection is required. Although a challenge for experienced players, higher handicappers will also enjoy the course. All will find putting quite tricky on the large but steeply contoured greens!

Corfu, Greece, Corfu Golf Club, 6,183 metres - par 72

This well established course makes the most of the natural resources of the Ropa Valley. Tree-lined fairways combine with several lakes and meandering streams against a backdrop of the surrounding high hills. Walking is easy and even in high summer there is usually a cooling breeze blowing in from the sea.

Livorno, Italy, Cosmopolitan Golf Club, 6,400 metres - par 72

The Cosmopolitan Golf and Country Club, Livorno offers a very interesting course which is links in style. Flat and treeless, the course follows the original contours of the land and incorporates hazards of sand, dunes and lakes. The mild and temperate climate, even in the heat of the summer, is a further attraction as is the magnificent surrounding scenery. Voted the best new golf course in Italy in 1993, the holes offer great variety with water coming in to play on eleven of them, which gives a slight American feel! Well done if you play to your handicap here whilst less experienced golfers will enjoy the wide fairways and nicely-sized greens.

Mahon, Menorca, Golf Son Parc, 4,932 metres, par 70, 9 holes


Malaga, Spain, Golf Torrequebrada, 5,852 metres - par 72

You may prefer to take a buggy for this hilly course which has been adapted to the shape and topography of the natural terrain. The course may not look long on paper but there is a lot of trouble around and even the shortest irons can be tricky. It is a beautiful course but watch out for the trees, woods, rough, bunkers and water hazards!
