Campo de Golf Manises
The Manises Golf Club is the oldest of the Valencian
clubs. It is a 9-hole course, whose flat layout requires precision
and constancy because the fairways are narrow and flanked by dense
trees, and the greens are small and surrounded by numerous bunkers,
with limited room to manoeuvre on the approach and a lot of rough.
The important thing to remember all the way around is not to lose sight of the straight line. You also have to bear in mind the difficulty which exists when coming off the fairways. The 7th hole, a very long par-4, is especially worth mentioning as is the fairway of the 3rd, where the second shot – if you manage to clear a group of tall pine trees – can reach the green and allow you to go for a well-deserved birdie.
Basically, it is a very comfortable and simple course which will be enjoyed by elderly people, beginners and children.

Club de Golf Escorpion
Located in a lovely valley, surrounded by small
hills covered with pine trees. The course is picturesque, even
though it is not particularly undulating. It has five lakes, on
which numerous birds nest. The 5th hole is very dangerous if you
don´t put the drive on the fairway, as the fairway is bordered
on the right by a big lake that punishes a slice and on the left
by a rough full of orange trees. The drive on the 18th holes is
not too complicated due to the wide fairway, but a sharp slice
will leave the player facing a nasty rough.

El Bosque Golf & Country Club
Situated in the Autonomous Region of Valencia,
just 15 minutes from Manises airport and 25 minutes from the city
It has an 18-hole round located on very undulating terrain, the fairways are narrow and there is abundant local vegetation. There are four lakes which could prevent you from making par. Two holes especially worth mentioning are the 9th, strongly defended by pine trees, and the extremely tough 7th. The holes are strategically situated and blend into the surrounding landscape. Basically, it is a round which varies in terms of layout and level of difficulty but it is easy to get a good result.
