Garrucha is a great place for lovers of golf. There is a course reasonably close to the town called  the Marina Golf Club and this sits roughly half way to Mojácar. The course is flat and green and well maintained. As you play alongside the coastline you can enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings too.

Slightly further north you'll find the Desert Springs Golf Course which is great for the whole family and has good facilities. It is Europe's only Desert course and is well managed with fine turf and fast greens. It is a pretty challenging course with dry river beds, rocks, streams and strategically placed bunkers and cactus plants. It is well known as one of the better courses in Spain and is good for both amateurs and professionals. The course and its accompanying facilities were recognised by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation when Desert Springs hosted the Spanish Amateur Open back in 2004. There are over 100 bird species to look out for and of the 150,000 cacti, over 200 different species are cultivated in the site's nursery.

To stay near Garrucha and take advantage of the facilities take a look at the wonderful properties of Alfaix by following the link below.

I’ve recently put together a content piece for that I hope you will find interesting and relevant to your website. The piece focusses on the environmental challenges facing golf and how golf is rising to meet them.
As golf has been in the firing for its effect on the environment for some time I thought a piece covering the positive steps golf is taking to become eco-friendly would be both timely and of interest to your readers.
You can view the graphic here:
We hope you love it enough to republish it on the site and so we’ve added some easy embed codes which you can just copy and paste in to add it on a page!

All the Best,

Although you can surrender your investment back to the company after two years or more you should not expect a full return of what you have paid. What you get back will reflect initial and ongoing charges and costs as well as changes in the value of the properties and securities in the fund in which your money, after charges, is invested. A summary of initial and ongoing charges is in section E of the Product Particulars. Exceptionally surrender may be deferred up to twelve months. Minimum initial payment £5,000 and then a quarterly fee of around thirty pounds linked to RPI. No medical examination required. HPB is available exclusively through HPBM who will only charge for their services if you invest.

HPBM promotes only HPB and is not independent of HPBA. Holders of policies issued by HPBA will not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme if the company becomes unable to meet its liabilities to them but Isle of Man compensation arrangements apply to new policies.
