Spain's Almerimar Golf Club: Don't hold your breath for quality

After playing Almerimar Golf Club in Andalucia, Spain, I must say: Don't hold your breath for four hours on a quality course, which this isn't.

Perhaps in fairness, golfing here in January one shouldn't expect much as the fairways are burnt, the tee boxes are in deplorable condition and, what's sad, garbage is littered everywhere on the periphery of the course.

In fact, although workers are apparent on the course doing tree planting, etc., they seem not at all interested in the type of maintenance one would expect a good course to have.

No ball washers on the first nine, no drinking water, confusing directional signs and poor sand bunkers, among other annoyances, make for an unpleasant experience.
