The 18-hole par 71 layout isn't long - it's designed to be accessible to all - but it features two giant lakes and requires an accurate game.
The greens are fast and the Bermuda grass fairways are wide, as Puntiró is meant to be a golf course for everybody to enjoy; just keep out of the trees, water, bunkers and the long rough with its pretty wild white flowers, and you might even find it easy!
Some trees – such as the typical algarrobo (carob) trees, with their thick trunk similar to an olive, were even uprooted and replanted after construction of the course, helping to make it look more mature. Only recycled water is used and - very importantly for a golfer’s enjoyment of his round - you’re not playing in the middle of a housing development.
The undulating course will challenge experienced golfers with its two large lakes, well-placed bunkers and very fast, tricky, Bent Grass greens, but four different tee positions will allow everybody to enjoy their round.
Bermuda Princess grass is used on the fairways here, as it is on many top courses in hot climates, such as Valderrama.
Tree-lined fairways, some with sharp dog-legs, elevated tees, water hazards and small, tough greens make this a challenge to even the best of players.
But hopefully you will find comfort in the tranquil spectacle before your eyes: beautiful views over the bay, with olive and almond trees.
You do not have to be a resident of one of the group's hotels to play, but there is a discount if you are.
