Alhama Signature Golf

Alhama Signature Golf, Spain – Par 4, 428 yards

Jack Nicklaus is renowned for offering golfers plenty of room to manoeuvre from the tee and the first at Alhama is no exception.

Pull the driver from the bag and open the shoulders for a relatively stress free opening shot on this desert course as, the closer you get to the green, the smaller the margin for error gets.

With a well struck tee shot safely in play - only the wildest of tee shots will find any significant trouble here - you will need to be on your game from the off to play safely onto the green which is well guarded by a dramatic looking series of bunkers and large mounding that creates an amphitheatre style effect. Miss short or long and your short game will be under early pressure.
