The beautiful championship golf course provides golfers with a unique challenge and is great for golfers of all abilities. The variety of tee boxes means the course plays differently depending on which ones you play off. The greens are fast and are protected by both bunkers and water hazards meaning that players need to be precise in their approach shots. The 18th is the course’s signature hole and produces a fantastic risk and reward style of golf. The short par 4 measures in at just 290 yards meaning reaching the green off the tee is certainly a possibility for the bigger hitters. However, a large body of water guards the front of the green and runs a long way down the right side of the fairway meaning accuracy is imperative if you wish to avoid a splash. For those who wish to play it safe and hit down the fairway doesn't necessarily mean that they have an easier shot as anything slightly pushed (if right handed) will too find its way into the water. The green is also guarded by a number of bunkers and if found can lead to a daunting shot back towards the water. On the whole, Olivar De La Hinojosa is a stunning golf course and is a must play for any groups of golfers travelling to the Madrid area.
