INFINITUM Golf Resort Review

By: Richard Moore | Wed 13 Sep 2023

If you are searching for a simple budget golf holiday in the sun, stop reading now as there are tonnes of other decent courses in Spain for you to discover. But if you want something a little bit special - please read on!

‘Welcome to everything’ is the unofficial slogan at INFINITUM. This is not just a top-notch golf complex on Spain’s Costa Dorada coast. Here you will experience outstanding golf; access to a secluded beach; Mediterranean forests; a Beach Club with numerous infinity pools and three incredible gourmet restaurants. A recent investment is the addition of a Callaway Performance Academy at the golf driving range on the Lakes Course. 

INFINITUM is located just over an hour by car from Barcelona and 20 minutes from the magnificent Catalonian town of Tarragona, which is full of Roman history. I stayed at the H10 Imperial Tarragona which provided easy access to a beautiful town and its many excellent Catalan restaurants, including the AQ Restaurant

The Venue

Infinitum Lakes Course

Golf has been played on this 330-hectare site since it first opened in 2008, but you might recognise it from the previous name ‘Lumine’ - which was then just focused on golf. But now under new ownership, INFINITUM has experienced huge investment throughout to make it a total experience.

The whole experience is true luxury with all the finest details carefully planned. For those wanting a great golfing experience topped off by fine dining - this is the place for you. 

Due to the climate, you can eat outside right through from March - December.  Many of the Nordic golf federations have already cottoned onto this and escape their cold winters to use INFINITUM’s extensive facilities during those months!

The complex has two extremely modern clubhouses (both with incredible views over their respective 18th holes on the Hills and Lakes courses). I ate some incredible food in The Lakehouse Bistrot (showcasing an amazing selection of tapas, pastas, seafood, etc) overlooking the 18th on the Lakes Course. Next I experienced Flamma Beach Foodhouse, which was clearly five-star cuisine with awe inspiring views over the sea and the INFINITUM Beach Club PURA. I did not sample the Terrace at Hills but could see the views over the 18th were simply amazing.

Even the locker rooms at the Lakes have something special to offer. Here the showers have an indoor or an outdoor option for each shower cubicle! Something I have never experienced before. 

After your round, the always smiling staff welcome you by offering a refreshing cold scented towel (like a five-star hotel would do for you in Mauritius), but not only that but they clean your clubs for you too. Both nice touches.

Those visitors conscious of the importance of sustainability will delight in the fact that INFINITUM has invested in a solar powered water desalination plant which processes (cleans and treats) water from some surrounding towns and industries. This provides the water needed to hydrate the course and its immense flora around the complex.

For those lucky few, there are already 150 luxury private residencies (with a growing range of villas and apartments averaging €600k) on site. These boast some of the best sea views over Playa Larga from their private balconies. Many more homes are planned for construction in the coming years across the complex. I saw one of the show rooms and it was absolutely fantastic.

Furthermore a five-star hotel is approved to be built too, which will provide views over the Hills Course and the sea. 

The Courses

Infinitum Hills Course

INFINITUM features two championship-standard 18-hole courses and a nine-hole course.

The Greg Norman-designed INFINITUM Lakes Course has been recently enhanced by renovating the tees (boasting beautiful flower beds and signage on all the tees) and fairways where they have replaced Rye grass with Bermuda Tifway 419 grass - which requires significantly less water and fertiliser (i.e. another commitment to sustainability - for which it has many awards already). The Lakes Course is spread across the Sequia Major wetlands, which is classified as a space of Natural Interest with lots of reeds, poplars and willow trees, and numerous water hazards (especially when the tidal waters come in). European pond turtles and Spanish Toothcarp can be seen. The mixture of fresh and salt water provide an abundance of varied wildlife. This all combines to provide really picturesque Catalan scenery, not to mention many species of wild migratory birds from Africa. The bird sounds out on the course are amazing. Water plays a part on 14 of the 18 holes, more so than on any other course I have played where the word ‘Lakes’ is used.

The INFINITUM Hills Course, designed by Alfonso Vidaor, is a total contrast to the Lakes. Here only five holes feature any water, instead this excellent course meanders through a wealth of natural pine trees and towering cliffs. Some of the holes have bare rock faces, which are the remnants of a sandstone quarry where the stone was used to build the harbour of the neighbouring town of Cambrils - which provides incredible framing to the greens on the 13th, 17th and 18th holes and you will find yourself reaching for your camera phone. There are numerous breathtaking views across the Llaberia Natural Reserve and the Mediterranean Sea and sights of the Muntanyes de Prades Massif in the distance. The Hills is an excellent challenge and provides many beautiful holes from elevated tees.

Finally, there is the nine-hole INFINITUM Ruins Course (also one of Greg Norman’s) taking you on a fun journey through Olive and Carob trees and ancient archaeological remains that are really evident on the 1st and 9th holes. From this course you get excellent views over the tops of the trees to the rollercoasters on the neighbouring Portaventura Theme Park. The twists and turns of the rollercoasters are ironically similar to the wild undulations you will experience on some of the toughest greens I have played on. And listen out for the screams! Not all of them come from the fairground!

There’s little surprise that INFINITUM has been named ’Best Golf Complex In Europe’ at the 2019, 2020 and 2021 World Golf Awards.
