Designer Dave Thomas had a dream job when commissioned to design the first Hacienda del Álamo golf course: an 18 hole, 7,400 metre course.
He had all the land he could want to design it, with this idea in mind: “There where no limits. That is to say, first we made the ‘dream’ field, with no restrictions on space, as if nothing else existed. And then, we used the same criteria with the houses: just enough of them so that the resort would have plenty of breathing room with broad open spaces.”
“For this reason, our first golf course is one of the best in Europe. It is no less than 92 hectares. It is wide, with long holes, spacious, and with many lakes. It is very soft, because it is built on natural terrain.”
“At the same time, it has some very well-planned obstacles. Its 7,400 yards take five hours to play, and there are tee-offs every ten minutes, even on very busy days. There is no such thing as a “slow game.”
“You can enjoy the course calmly, without hurrying. It is incredible how fast people get used to this pace of life.”
