La Galiana Golf
More and more people are coming to this part of the Costa Blanca area to enjoy the beautiful scenery and take part in some sort of outdoor activity holiday, and one that should not be overlooked by anyone thinking of this part of Spain is the game of golf. When one thinks of golf in Spain, many are drawn to the south of the country but there are some beautiful courses in this region as well.
One such course is La Galiana, situated about 30 minutes’ drive from Villa Florencia. It is set in the Vall de la Valldigna and the La Galiana course enjoys a spectacular setting in a valley surrounded by pine and orange groves, isolated from residential areas. More than 5000 local species of plants and trees have been used for its landscaping.
This course has everything that makes golf such an attractive game. It has a great location in the Vall de la Valldigna and is a protected area of nature, where there are no residential buildings, and it features spectacular scenery and stunning views. The course itself is 18 holes Par 72 and 6975 meters from the back Tees, and with six Tees for each hole it provides a challenge for all levels of expertise. At the same time it is entertaining too, since the design of each hole has been studied for a continuous challenge for even the most accomplished players, so everybody can enjoy a fun day of golf.
The arrangement of greens and bunkers, and numerous water hazards that are distributed along the route, mean that the course will test the ability of all players, who will have to use their entire repertoire of shots. It really is a course of outstanding beauty set in natural surroundings, and the only sound you may hear, apart from the birds, is the click of ball on club or the distant shout of “fore”.
It has established rivals on the Costa Blanca such as El Saler, El Bosque and Oliva Nova, but La Galiana will take some beating, so if you are planning a golf trip to the Costa Blanca then put this gem in your itinerary.
