10th & 18th From The Hotel (2)

Sunshine and relaxed golf in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in a tranquil, yet beautiful setting in Spain’s sunniest province, Almeria.

Valle del Este

We are thrilled to return to this stunning golf resort - a firm favourite with Solo’s golfers. Valle del Este’s desert setting is spectacular, with rugged mountains in the background and the sea sparkling in the distance. The hotel has recently been refurbished, and the course has been improved, so we definitely recommend a visit.

We have included 5 rounds of golf on Valle del Este, when we will be running our social mixed team competitions. Our morning tee times mean that you will have plenty of time to relax by the hotel’s beautiful swimming pool in the afternoon – the perfect combination for a relaxing golf h

Valle del Este Golf Course

18 holes, 5720 metres, Par 71

Valle del Este has a fascinating variety of distinctive holes that are sure to test every facet of your game. The wide fairways may look tempting, but large bunkers and three lakes lie in wait to trap the wayward shot. The course has been carved out of the desert, and is beautifully integrated into the barren rocky landscape using the indigenous vegetation, which gives the course a similar feel to the American courses in the Arizona desert.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Alicante Airport to our hotel is approximately 2 hours, depending on weather and traffic.

Golfing Schedule:
5 rounds of organised golf on Valle del Este Golf Course

Golf Handicaps
This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for ladies and 28 or lower for gentlemen.

Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, and if you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip. This enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly.

If you are uncertain about these requirements please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you.

Golf Club Insurance
Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag.

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire
Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements.

Golf Footwear
Golf shoes with soft spikes are required.

Carriage of Clubs
We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop.

What to Wear
Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.
