The Parador de El Saler, Valencia Golf course is considered by professionals, amateurs, institutions and the specialized press alike to have one of the best course layouts in the world.

Built in 1968 by the internationally recognized architect of Spanish golf, Javier Arana, the course is located in the El Saler Nature Reserve, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea in the Autonomous Community of Valencia. This Community is a leader with respect to economic development in Spain, and considers this course a source of pride.

The courses design took into account its integration in the protected landscape with native plants such as the famous pale stonecrop plant, locally called cats claw. The course layout is varied, ranging from the beach links reminiscent of the famous Scottish golf courses, to areas of typical Mediterranean forest. The par-72 course measures 6.042 m, spread out over 18 holes.

"A) Very slow playing speed, many bad players on cours, you need rangers to speed up slow flights!!!! B) Almost all flags are standing at the beginning of the greens, that is a pity, you have such nice greens..." - Roger Kuhn

"Trevlig och omväxlande bana. Fairways var i bra skick. Greenerna hade jämn rull om än inte så snabba. Greenerna var också förhållandevis mjuka vilket bidrog till att det var lätt att få stopp på inspelen men också att det var mycket olagade nedslagsmärken. Bunkrarna var generellt okrattade och inte alls ngn rolig syn. Fina faciliteter i form av restaurang, omklädningsrum etc. 5 min promenad till bad i hav efter avslutad runda." - Göran

"In 22 years of golf touring throughout UK and Europe, El Saler is one of the very best we have ever played. Maybe just a little let down by the 16th with the driving range which runs alongside. However, a fantastic experience which I cannot wait to repeat." - Huge

"Whilst I did not make great contact, to play within 8-10 shots of handicap at this course is a good round" - Anonymous

"The course was in good conditions. However, some teeboxes were not as exepted. Moreover the visitor changing rooms were ok but we had to pay for the shower towel. For me that is not how it should be. Kind regards Remo" - Anonymous

"Beautiful course on a luxury location. Due to a competition in progress, we had to wait a lot. Challenging course with many blind shots. Beware of the strong wind!" - SJ

"Loved the course and its setting. The greens were immaculate but somehow felt slow. Maybe the grass was kept longer to protect them. Really liked the challenging last two holes and the great company I had. I rented clubs from the course at a very reasonable price would recommend anytime." - Matthias

"Despite scoring 18 over handicap it was brilliant. Ferocious wind made it really interesting and greens completely unforgiving. Expect a high score on this course and enjoy the day - if you want to beat your handicap - will not happen" - Gary willey

"Great classical lay out! Fairways a bit dry. Tees could be better mowed! Super experience thanks to the wind of 16 knots!!" - Ronald
