A spectacular new clubhouse is now open at Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort, hailed as “Spain´s New Number One”.
This unique construction overlooks the golf course and also has stunning views all the way to the Mar Menor and to the mountains of Murcia.
It is one of the most important buildings in the development of the resort and has already won a great deal of praise for its beautiful looks and remarkable setting.
Several years in the planning and two years in the building, its 2,000 square metres state of the art design features dramatic use of light and space
As well as being an operational golf clubhouse, restaurant, bar and shop, it is also an breathtakingly daring architectural marvel.
There is a large entrance reception area which is permanently manned. The office of the Director of Golf Billy Sim is behind this. The main entrance leads to the large Golf Shop where there is a golf check-in desk as well as the sales point for golf equipment and clothing.
Close to here there is also a TV lounge with Internet connection, a cards and games room and the billiards room.
The Spikes Bar and the restaurant are the main focus of this floor and they can be separated by a dividing wall or connected together to seat 250 people.The two spacious terraces have spectacular views over the course.
One floor above, a second “top” terrace allows views as far as the Mar Menor.
The restaurant will have what is described as “Show Cooking” so diners can watch the preparation of their food. It is also planned to have a running buffet during the daytime with normal snacks/ tapas available from the Spikes Bar.
The kitchen area in this respect also has all the latest modern equipment you would expect for us to provide a first class food and beverage service to all.The top level VIP lounge is restricted to Property Owners with Golf Shares and their guests and can also be used for private functions if requested. This area is also decorated to a high standard with original working fire place, large screen TV and library.
Back down on the entrance level, the locker rooms, toilets and shower areas are finished to a high standard with a sauna room in both male and female areas. There’s also a treatment area for massage and physiotherapy.
The lower floor is where all the golf operation offices are situated including golf supervisors office, accounts, caddie masters / course marshals, club storage, buggy parking for owners, rental buggies and trollies.
“This is a really beautiful design that really blends with the local environment and it is easy to see why the club house has won praise for its architecture even before it was finished” commented Director of Golf Billy Sim.
“Now we invite you all to come and see for yourself just how special it is.”
Situated in the beautiful Murcia countryside and close to stunning beaches, Hacienda del Alamo already boasts one championship golf course, a golf academy including a driving range and six-hole practice course, and others are planned.
The resort of 3,500 homes is built around the 7,400 yard championship golf course, designed by the renowned course designer Dave Thomas, whose portfolio includes the Brabazon at the De Vere Belfry and also La Manga.
There are those, like the Voice of Golf Peter Alliss himself and European Tour Pro Miguel Angel Jiménez who believe the golf course is one of the best in Europe. It is built on 92 hectares which is almost twice as large as the average golf course.
