Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort
Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort consists of 1834 apartments in 78 blocks, scattered around an 18-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The resort centre is based around the existing the old Hacienda – a restored, late-19th Century, colonial-style country house, previously belonging to the Riquelme Family, which gives its name to the resort.
The rest of the resort centre follows the same architectural style and contains a restaurant, bar, golf shop and supermarket. The old dovecote has been converted into a café, right on the golf course itself.
Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort offers, as well as the Jack Nicklaus designed, 18 hole golf course, a driving range, putting and chipping greens. The golf course is a par 72 and 6416 metre course. The course covers an area of 71 hectares and has a mountain backdrop and panoramic views of the coast.
The Region of Murcia has an excellent climate of over 320 days sunshine per year and warm winters and is the ideal venue for year-round golf. But it is not just about the golf, many[who?] have bought apartments here, because they love the sun and the views of the gardens, golf course and the 19 pools. There are also: tennis courts, paddle tennis courts, basketball and football court, gym equipment and a pool table.
The village of Sucina is just a few minutes from the resort, by car, with shops, banks, and restaurants including Spanish, Italian & Indian. The seaside town of Los Alcazares with sandy beaches, shallow sea, and restaurants is about 20 minutes drive, and Balsicas railway station is 15 minutes away, with its high speed train links to Murcia, Cartagena, Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Albacete and Valencia etc.
The airport at San Javier is 15 minutes away, whilst the airport at Alicante is 50 minutes away.
The resort has benefited from the building of Mucia’s RM-1 motorway. This makes the resort much more accessible and allows residents and holiday makers quick access to Sucina, the beach and airports.
