Last night we went to Marbella and caught up with our friends from NZ, Bruce and Konnie who happened to be in the area. We had a lovely dinner at Paella’s Y Mas. I also spotted some very nice shops as we drove through Marbella so have added that to our list of sightseeing destinations.
After a few days of mixed bag weather we were very happy to wake up to a beautiful clear sky morning. We booked a round at Alcaidesa Golf Links Resort. There are two courses here – Alcaidesa Links and Alcaidesa Heathland. The Links course has fantastic views of the Mediterranean, the Rock of Gibraltar and North Africa. It was the perfect day to make the most of these views.
It is a very enjoyable course. After a lightbulb moment at the driving range yesterday I played really well and hit the ball nicely. I had two birdies and a handful of pars. It was an I Love Golf day.
Alcaidesa Links is the only links course in southern Europe, inaugurated in 1992 and designed by Peter Ellis and Clive Clark.
