Some very nice hols but course a bit tatty
As its name would suggest The Lakes Course winds its way around the Sèquia Major wetlands so accuracy is key throughout the round in order to avoid a nasty penalty or two. Measuring 6,889 yards from the back tees, The Lakes Course is more than long enough to test the best players in the game and thanks to the intelligent layout and the ever present threat of the lurking water hazards it is also the most technically difficult courses of the three. As with all of the courses at Lumine, The Lakes Course is always in superb condition meaning that if you manage the course well and hit greens in regulation you should be rewarded with good birdie chances.
In contrast to The Lakes Course, The Hills Course has been carved through areas of mature white pine, carob and olive trees and features fewer water hazards meaning accuracy is still the order of the day but for a different reason; hit a wayward tee shot here and you will have a chance at recovery. The course follows the natural lay of the land and thus players will have to negotiate sweeping undulations which can effect club selection. Well positioned bunkers and natural landforms also act as defences for the course and while golfers are enjoying the challenge of battling Old Man Par they will be treated to spectacular views of the Balearic Sea. Measuring 6,926 yards, The Hills Course is more than long enough to keep the bombers entertained while a number of forward tee positions make the course more manageable for players with less prowess from the tee.

A nice course “on the flat” but with some challenging holes. The bunkers in places need additional sand as some were just solid. The course was in good condition and we enjoyed our round. Again we had a potential problem with our return transfer which we had booked for 3pm...we checked at the golf reception desk and they told us it was booked for 4pm...we said it can’t be as we were being picked up from our hotel to go to the airport for our flight at 3.30pm. So yet again they had to make a number of phone calls to get us picked up 10 minutes late. All in all a good trip but I had issues in the week running up to the trip with the Yourgolftravel customer service team over incorrect vouchers/timings which they said they’d sort out then heard nothing for 4 days from them. I eventually emailedIan Purvis as I wasn’t getting any progress for him to reissue the vouchers...again incorrectly so eventually got a phone call from him saying it wasn’t him that sent me the vouchers but an agency using his email address. So it took 4 attempts to get things correct. Then the issues over at Lumine re the pick up transfers.....all in all not very satisfactory customer service/experience from yourselves.
We played this course for the 1st time and whilst we found it interesting the greens still had sand on them from maintenance and were therefore slow. The drinks buggy came around which was welcomed though only had 1baguette for 4 of us. The Clubhouse was closed which was disappointing as the main Clubhouse is nearly 1.5 miles away. Our transfer back to the hotel was arranged for 5pm which we waited for...after 10 mins we asked at Reception where we were told it was 6pm collection. We showed them our confirmation from Yourgolftravel which clearly showed 5pm....they said they would try and get someone to collect us in 5 minutes but this turned out to be @5.40...some 40 minutes late.
The least liked of the 3 but still it was never going to beat the other 2. It is for those who hit it straight,not overly long but full of water if you stray.
A fantastic complex and course would highly recommend.

The facilities and staff at this facility were good, but due to high number of golfers were stretched and you had to be patient when booking in and using driving range and practice facilities. The course was very damp and with many bare patches, we believe they might have suffered a summer heat wave similar to the UK but they appeared to take the action of excessively water the course will repair the damage, but unfortunately this failed as the damaged areas just became mud patches, made the courses long and then resulted in mainly tee positions off the blue blocks which then gave a short course especially for low handicap golfer who were disappointed. Also tee and ground around greens conditions was disappointing well used and bare in some areas. The saving grace on both courses were the greens in good condition especially with high volume of traffic. The main disappointment was as a two ball we were sandwiched in all four rounds in between many four ball games and experienced from 43/4 hours to 51/2 hours We were happy to join up with other golfers but were never given the opportunity? Why was we not warned this would be the case, or even offered to go off early in front of the four balls? We would recommend that no two balls go out to these popular courses, certainly at this time of the year. Unfortunately on our third game of the eight days ( second at lakes ) a thunder storm struck the area flooding many parts of the course, we had to clear the course after only playing 6 holes but to be fair the staff were very good handing out towels as we came off the course and arranging our transport back to the hotel ASAP. Doubtful that we would go back to these courses. Frank
Lakes was the better of the two this year a great clubhouse and facilities 2nd to none Would def play again
Very disappointed with the Hills course this year having found it to be our favourite last year so decided to play it twice this year the fairways were in very poor condition with very or no grass on the fairways
