Course Reviews I saw the club three years prior and promised myself a game if I ever returned to Ibiza. I played this course in June 2007 with mixed results. The course comes in at €90 to play (around £60 at the time) add €39 buggy hire and a further €30 for club hire. Suffice to say not cheap so you've really got to enjoy your golf to feel that you've got value for money.
First impressions are good, until you meet the receptionist behind the desk who gives you the look that you've missed the turning for San Antonio and have been left behind on the 18-30 booze cruise. The deposit for the clubs has to be in cash so it was fortuitous that I had it on me, next step the golf pro for the clubs.
The portly mahogany pro was less than helpful communicating in clicks and grunts like an elderly uncle I remember after a stroke. I mentioned earlier about the getting the clubs, I say clubs, that I fear would be overstating what I was supplied. Two drivers a three and five metal wood neither have been graced with a club cover so the irons therefore did an excellent job of giving them the appearance of an M.O.D. firing range...
The irons were no better with a brown ring of rust round where the head meets the shaft. Off to the first tee, three wood out, practice swing, warm up, open golf bag for golf balls, think again. You may well have booked your tee time hired the buggy, clubs and payed handsomely for the privilege of being there but don't then expect to be supplied balls or tees, not one. So back up to the pro shop to get some balls at an over inflated price of course and then to queue again for tee off.
By the second hole I'd abandoned the drivers both were utter rubbish, the course and the surrounding scenery however made up for it. The second hole has a large water hazard around 90 yards in. You can drive this but as I'd abandoned the woods I decided to pitch to the edge then clear it from there. Successful I took out the five and with a confident shot cleared the water hazard only to have the club head fly of and land in the water. Truly a moment straight out of a pink panther movie.
The rest of the course was better and in good condition despite the best efforts of the staff and the pro. Some of the players have yet to master letting others play through and relish the opportunity to be as obstenant as possible. I've played golf all my life and enjoy it as a sport, I play off 18 and have been a member of my local club in Scotland for years where a round of golf costs around £20 roughly €30. Paying three times as much to play this course doesn't guarantee three times the pleasure, service, scenery or enjoyment. I could be wrong but locals drive white buggies and visitors seem to be given the red ones, I think this is to mark you out for special treatment and not in a good way.
If you have your own clubs and can avoid the staff, I'd advise you to play this course.
