The urbanizations superb location is right on the beachfront of the Mediterranean Sea, between the towns of Denia and Oliva. The Club de Golf Oliva Nova 18-hole course was designed by the Spanish Golfing legend Severiano Ballesteros and is widely considered his best design to date.
The Costa Blanca region averages 300 sunny days per year with water temperatures of 24° in the height of summer, falling to 18° in November. The region is reputed for glorious sunshine throughout the year.
From the resort it is less than a 50 metre walk to the beach. The white sandy beaches are virtually endless, stretch from Denia to Valencia and even in the busiest months you are guaranteed your position and privacy. The crystal clear waters are backed by protected dunes and all the beaches have been awarded with the E.U. blue flag certification.
The resort contains a number of full size synthetic grass courts along with some practice / paddle courts. All the necessary equipment can be rented for a nominal fee.
To the uninitiated, a golf course may well seem like little more than an enormous green field, with dollops of sand around the greens, maybe some water hazards and a fair proportion of trees scattered around the place. To a golfer, a great course is packed with difficulties to trap the unwary, but forgiving enough to allow the brave and thinking player
to master all its intricacies. Such is Oliva Nova Golf on the Costa Blanca. It’s a links course, set right beside the Mediterranean, 6,270 metres in length off the white tees and a par of 72 (SSS 73), designed by Severiano Ballesteros, who has turned out to be as good at designing courses as he was at taming them in his heyday. The club also has a comprehensive driving range, pitch and putt area and a practice putting
green. Wind and water are the keywords at Oliva Nova, where 15 of the 18 holes have water features running alongside them, around them or across them, or a combination of all. In Seve’s own words.” Oliva Nova Golf has been designed to host the most prestigious international tournaments on the European circuit, yet it is a fair course, whether you are professional or amateur.”
It’s a massive course in every sense of the word, with some greens as large as 750 square metres and long drives off the tee. The clubhouse is just as impressive as the actual course. It’s a 3,000 square metre
building, overlooking the tees of holes 1,8 and 10 and the greens of holes 7,9 and 18. On the ground floor are pro shop, changing rooms, club store and buggy parking. On the first floor, there’s a cafeteria, restaurant and lounge area all, naturally, with large terraces. But Oliva Nova is much more than just a golf course. The Beach and Golf Hotel
comprises 237 rooms, with direct access to the beach and just 150m. from the first tee, and all the facilities that one would expect from a luxury, four-star hotel. If the hotel is not for you, there is a selection of apartments and villas for rental. In fact, Oliva Nova has got pretty much everything you could wish for.
Situated close to the resort town of Oliva, this course has top class golf facilities and was voted the best of all Seve Ballesteros designed courses.
Ballesteros, said of this 18-hole, 72 par course “The Oliva Nova Golf Course offers great variety for all golfers. As it has short, medium and long holes as well as right and left hand dog leg fairways. A true but fair test for all golfers alike.”
Water plays a part in the difficulty of the course, with a number of lakes placed as obstacles along its 6,270 metres length. With 15 out of 18 holes effected in this way its not surprising that the Peugeot Oki Spanish National Championship has been held here on four occasions.
Other facilities on site include a Golf Academy with a team of multilingual coaches, a driving range with 25 bays, two putting greens, two chipping areas and also two bunkers. The course is open all year.
Oliva Nova Urbanisation
In the residential areas of Oliva Nova and San Fernando there are hundreds of villas to rent, most with private or communal pools. This is becoming an increasingly popular type of holiday with foreigners who like the freedom and comfort of self-catering accommodation. It can also work out cheaper than a hotel if you are travelling in a group as you normally pay a fixed price for the villa rather than paying per person.
Many of the villas flank the fairways of the 18-hole Oliva Nova golf course and so are ideal for golf enthusiasts (less enthusiastic families can spend the day on the lovely beaches, just across the sand dunes from the course).
If you are not on too tight a budget, then the Oliva Hotel offers some superb facilities including a health and beauty centre with Turkish bath, sauna, jacuzzi, fitness room and relaxation room with music therapy. There are also various beauty treatments available.
The hotels 242 rooms all have TV, air conditioning, mini bar and terrace. For some serious pampering, opt for one of the rooms with private solarium and plunge pool.
There are three restaurants with local Valencian and international cuisine – the main “El Olivo” restaurant overlooking the central swimming pool area, the “Columbus” and the “Albatros” near the clubhouse.
