New course developments include the Oceanico Millennium Golf Course (whilst an associate of Hawtree Ltd.) in Vilamoura, Portugal; a PGA European Tour standard course at Wychwood Park, Crewe, in the UK; and the creation of a new 18-hole championship links course for the Marine Golf Club on the island of Sylt, in Germany.

Destination Golf – Murcia, Spain

Sep 25th
2011

Murcia or Costa Calida (Warm Coast) lies in the South East corner of Spain between Andalucia and Valencia, Murcia has a relaxed atmosphere and the locals believe the most important thing is to enjoy life. The province has over 170km of coastline dotted with wonderful beaches in addition to the largest salt-water lagoon in Europe (the Mar Menor), ideal for family bathing as the water here is calm and shallow and 5 degrees warmer than the rest of the Mediterranean.

Murcia enjoys more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and the winters are pleasantly mild and dry. On the coast you can enjoy the stunning cliffs, endless white sandy beaches, pretty ports and undiscovered coves with crystal clear water; the beautiful and historic towns of Alhama, Lorca and Murcia are all well worth a visit if time permits as are the numerous attractive villages that dot the Costa Calida countryside as well as the impressive landscape of the Sierra de Espuña mountains.

But wait, there’s more
