Roda Golf and Beach Resort
About the home
Roda Golf is a great success story in Murcia, a few minutes from the Mar Menor which has lovely beaches, and safe warm water.
The apartment is 5 minutes by car to the sea and the small town of Los Alcazares. The local food and restaurants are excellent, with fresh fish from the supermarket which would make you want to BBQ almost every night. The resort is immaculately maintained and the adjacent new golf clubhouse, open to all, enables you to eat and drink well without bothering with a car. A roof terrace Night Club is open during the summer months at the Clubhouse.
Alicante and Cartagena are not far away, as is La Manga. Roda Golf also has, in the summer months, a superb Beach Club on the La Manga strip, and the Mediterranean sea is then 20 metres away.
The apartment is a wonderful base from which to chill out and enjoy Spanish living only a few hours away from the UK -- 5 minutes from the airport is pretty good too!
The Golf course is a Dave Thomas design, par 72, and good deals can be had from the clubhouse. Roda houses the HQ of the PGA in Spain, and has an excellent driving range, plus expert tuition. Green Fees are very reasonable. There is good availability and deals to be had on many other local courses -- we can advise on that.
We have 1 each gents and ladies set of very good quality golf clubs which can be used by clients, which will save a fortune on Ryanair carriage charges!
There is a small mini market on site with for a good range of standard provisions, wine and beers -- very handy!
We can arrange for you to be met at SanJavier airport and taken to the apartment. We can also arrange, through our contact at RodaFM, sightseeing trips, alternative golf courses -- do check out www.rodafm.com to see the services offered. Any arrangements made with Maggie at RodaFM are payable locally.
Access to our roof terrace is by a metal spiral staircase.
