Sad to say that they appear to have lost the course probably due to lack of maintenance during lockdown. A shame because it’s clearly a great layout. Fairways are bare, you can see that they have been heavily watered and seeded, but it’s not having much effect. Greens must have had a minimum of care during lockdown, it seems that fairway and local grasses have taken over from the normal grass, coverage is very thick and matted to the point where the ball doesn’t leave pitch marks and it’s impossible to get a good roll on the ball. I hope to never use the phrase ‘Hairy Hole Rim’ again. From a great deal of personal experience, I can confirm that the bunkers are excellent. Pro Shop is closed, there is a hut by the Practice range with minimal stock, balls, tees, drinks. Food and drinks were good though.
The exciting golfing development at Hacienda Riquelme is another feather in the cap of this extraordinary golfing destination, where an amazing number of quality golf courses are packed into an extremely convenient radius.
