Characteristics

El Valle Golf Course (nicknamed the tournament) is an award winning delight.  Designed to take full advantage of the desert surroundings of the resort, the many natural elements make this one of the most picturesque courses in the Nicklaus Golf Trail.  It is set within a landscape containing over five hectares of elaborately sculpted bunkers which help to separate the holes, create strategic interest and a very dramatic setting.  Three large lakes come into play on six holes and the golf course is complemented with lush landscaping further enhancing both the golf experience as well as the extended views from the surrounding development.  It's not the longest course but there's certainly a challenge from which ever tees you chose to play from.  El Valle relies on the many outcrops, undulating fairways and greens to give even the most experienced player a good challenge but rewards those with accuracy and course management.
