Golf in Ibiza

November 16th, 2007 - 9:23 pm Posted in ibiza | Comments (0)

The new golf course at Benimussa has been knocked back – although it would bring in high disposable income tourists (golfers) outside of the main tourist season, invest 100 million euros and create 300+ jobs

Currently the only course on the island is at Roca Lisa, and is not very “user friendly”. It’s understandable as they are a “private members club” – which means that they dont really want anyone other than their members playing golf there.

To play at Roca Lisa costs 90euros, and a buggy is 39 euros (this is according to their website which only lists their 2004 prices). On the mainland around the Orihuela Costa area alone (ie 30 mins from Alicante or Murcia airport) there at least 25 golf courses – none of which charge more than 70 odd euros in the high season (La Manga aside – which operates like Roca Lisa). Alicante Golf course for example charges 45 euros in low season (July-August) *and* includes a sat-nav buggy and a menu del dia – and is arguably one of the nicest courses on the Costa Blanca

Roca Lisa makes no distinction between playing at 10am in October or 3pm in August…

If the island wants to change its image then a naff new website complete with glaring spelling mistakes and not doing what it says its going to do is not the best way to go about it….
