The Murcia region
The Murcia region is in the south-east of Spain, and features a fantastic Mediterranean climate with over 320 days of sunshine a year. The proliferation of apricot and orange trees has earned Murcia the reputation of being Europe's orchard, 'Huerta de Europa'. The winter, spring and autumn are beautifully warm and sunny and are the best time of year for golfers, and for sightseeing in the surrounding area. The very high summer temperatures are best appreciated from the beach, swimming pool or sun lounger!
The area is at the southern end of the Costa Blanca, and is relatively undeveloped in comparison, although not lacking in facilities or character. There are great sandy beaches along both the Mediterranean coast, and the Mar Menor lagoon, and all kinds of water sports are on offer. Further inland is the beautiful countryside of the Sierra Espuna mountains, and the historic cities of Murcia and Cartegena are perfect for exploration or shopping.
The La Torre Golf Resort / Polaris World, La Torre area
The large and friendly La Torre Golf Resort is in a peaceful rural location a short distance from the more developed coast and towns. As a consequence, there is an exceptional range of on-site services and facilities for your holiday, including the golf course, bars, restaurants, shops and sports areas. The newly completed Intercontinental hotel brings with it new restaurants, the opportunity for a pamper in a luxurious spa, and an indoor swimming pool (charge applies for non residents). The lakeside town centre itself is built in a Mediterranean style, and is a great place for a relaxing drink, a good meal or a refreshing ice-cream in the summer. It's easily possible to have a fantastic holiday here without leaving the resort at all!
The resort is built around the excellent Jack Nicklaus designed 18 hole, par 68, golf course, giving the resort a spacious, natural feel. While not the longest course, the three large lakes and numerous bunkers will provide plenty of challenge for all levels of golfer. It is possible to hire golf clubs and other equipment (except shoes) if you don't want the hassle of bringing your own. You can pay for each round as you go, or plan ahead and buy a discounted book of rounds if you intend to play a lot of golf.
The La Torre golf course is one of nine planned golf courses which make up the Nicklaus golf trail in Murcia, four of which are already up and running. Staying at a Polaris World resort entitles you to play golf at the other Polaris World resorts, and there is even a free shuttle bus running between them.
AROUND THE RESORT
There is plenty of choice for a day at the beach with numerous blue flag beaches. Santiago de la Ribera and Los Narejos are the closest and located on the warm, shallow waters of the Mar Menor and only about a 20 minute drive. The whole of the Mar Menor is surrounded by sandy beaches though, not to mention the lovely Mediterranean coast line.
Many of the towns and villages around the resort have seen a lot of investment in tourist facilities in recent years making the area wonderful to explore. Murcia City is around 20-30 minutes drive and has been described as Spain's most historic and beautiful city. The Moorish influence can be seen in the city walls and its cathedral, with its 23 chapels it took four centuries to complete. Cartegena is the provinces second city, and is an ancient coastal town, with a lovely harbour area. Cabo de Palos is a fishing village with a much photographed lighthouse.
The area is not overdeveloped though, and there are plenty of natural sights worth seeking out. On the coast, there are Calblanque's untouched beaches and the salt flats at San Pedro del Pinatar. Inland, the mountain ranges of Sierra de Espuna and Sierra de Carrascoy make for fantastic exploration.
