El Plantio Golf Course information
El Plantio Golf, which sits on the southern outskirts of the City of Alicante, is a short drive to both Alicante Airport and Elche and originally began in 1993 as a 9 hole, par 3 course. The high quality 18 hole, par 72, 6302m, white tees, main course, designed by Manuel Ferry Ruiz, was under construction at that time and opened in 2000. The 18 hole course is truly a gem in the Mediterranean, glorious fairways, undulating greens, large menacing bunkers but with its natural vegetation, fig, palm and cork trees now maturing and surrounding both fairways and greens, it has great depth and definition. The 1st hole is a difficult par 4 with a water hazard to the left of the green followed by an uphill par 5. Take a moment when finished to enjoy the views. Although some seem to think that the front 9 is the “easier” of the two, don’t be fooled it requires concentration, skill and respect as any loose shot will cost you dearly. The back 9 must be taken seriously as there are numerous water hazards, waterfalls, raised greens, elevated tees, bunkers guarding greens and a mountain running alongside you on the 14th.
