What Makes Infinitum Golf & Beach Resort a Must Visit in Spain
Named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ for two consecutive years and host of the DP World Tour's Final Qualifying, Infinitum Golf & Beach Resort is undoubtedly one of the most exciting destinations for golfers in Spain.
Located on the coast of the Mediterranean in Salou, Costa Dorada, and positioned one hour south of Barcelona, this venue showcases three outstanding and distinctive courses that each present their own challenges.
When you consider the additional pleasures of enjoying fabulous local cuisine in a setting that boasts panoramic views, then here you have a golf break that is essential to experience.
The Golf Courses
Starting with the Hills Course, which was designed by Alfonso Vidaor, who created a layout that takes full advantage of the surrounding environment, running through thick pine and olive woodland and shaping itself around the landscape and providing spectacular vistas of the Mediterranean.
Greg Norman was the mind behind its sister Lakes Course, which naturally features many water hazards to be avoided. Renowned as the most challenging of the tracks, it's also worth noting that the Lakes is environmentally sustainable, using recycled water as part of the irrigation system, something that aligns with its tranquil setting to make this an attractive place to play.
Finally, if you want even more golf, then the nine-hole Ruins Course (also designed by Norman) is a fabulous spot that runs alongside Roman architectural remains and is positioned on the site’s highest point.
It's also key to note that when visiting Infinitum, you have appealing dining prospects before or after your rounds. Fresh local produce takes centre stage at Flamma Beach Foodhouse, while Hills Clubhouse and The Lakehouse Bistrot present a panoramic terrace with scenery over the golf course from which to enjoy your meal.
If you have decided that you wish to play these courses, just where are you going to stay? Thankfully, the options are plentiful and more than satisfactory.
Among the hotels in the area, you have the four-star Magnolia Hotel, which is celebrated for its dining facilities. Located right in the heart of Cambrils, Hotel Monica is a smart choice in a great position, while the contemporary Blaumar Hotel is arguably the spot for those who wish to benefit from the vibrancy and excitement of Salou.
Away from the golf, there is much to enjoy in the Salou area, including its numerous bars and restaurants, most notably Restaurant Mirimar, Koko Beach Club and Flash Back Salou, while many will relish the chance to pay a visit to PortAventura Theme Park where you will find the tallest and fastest ride in Europe.
If you would rather have a more serene day, then you will enjoy any of the number of blue flag winning beaches nearby, including Playa La Mora, La Pineda, La Savinosa, Coma-Ruga, Cunit, and Frances El Vendrell.
History buffs will love Tarragona, a World Heritage site steeped in the Roman Empire. Some of Tarragona’s highlights are the 12th Century Cathedral, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Praetorium and the Central Market.
