Europe's only true championship desert golf course, the Indiana
Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona and California, the Par 72, 6,159M Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to the full USGA specifications and quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer.
It presents unforgettable views, and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.
Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the "desert springs" and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.
Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling, the further your shot is off the fairway, culminating in the dreaded "spiked lies", so the course is both demanding and exhilarating. It offers a variety of shot making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.
The confirmation of the quality of the Indiana course is confirmed by its selection by numerous associations, both National and International to be host to their training camps as well as to Championship events.
