Corvera Golf – Full report April/May 2009!

May 15th, 2009

Entrance roads nearly completed
Entrance roads nearly completed

Many apologies for being late with this the April / May update and photos! We have been very busy helping people prepare for their new property at Corvera as well as continuing to look after our Roda Golf clients. On the subject of Roda Golf (www.rodagolfinfo.com), phase 4 is well under way and the new sports facilities have finally started, as I keep saying, things might be happening a little too slow for us, but they do get done and to the highest standard, please consider this when wondering, and worrying, about Corvera.

Anyway… on to Corvera Golf and Country Club! We are being asked a lot about phase 3. People are concerned about the building licenses, and when the building will start. Well the good news is that the phase 3 building licence’s are expected to be issued within the next few weeks and building will commence on that phase straight away – yes you have heard it before, but I do think phase 3 is about to start before the Summer, the developer is getting ready to press on with it and they are as anxious as you to get it all under way, watch this space!!

Now then, on to all you lucky people who are due to complete, it just gets better and better, the new road to the airport outside the resort really is well under construction, the entrance to Corvera is almost ready and will be in use within three or four weeks, the mail box area is all ready and the communal gardens to the left as you go through the main entrance are now looking wonderful, the children’s play areas with the communal gardens and all the new plants and shrubs looks fantastic. Our car was covered in dust from the massive construction vehicles at work on the access road, and workers were in evidence busily working on the entrance and finishing off at the post box areas.

We counted about 450 ornamental benches that are currently being installed throughout the resort in the communal areas. We were also amazed at the sheer amount of plants and shrubs now bedding in! All of the plants at Corvera are from the local area, so there will be no question of them not being able to survive and they will require very little maintenance.

The PGA driving range and academy are almost complete and the driving range is already very green and lush, you will hopefully see this on the photos that accompany this report, the news is that the PGA golf academy will be open in June and again it looks fantastic. There was so much work going on at the driving range that we were not allowed any closer, but seeing the green grass in the centre of the development was a heart-warming sight!

Speaking of “green” – the golf course is currently being seeded and by the end of May the whole golf course should have been seeded and will be green by the end of July, then we will be getting really excited! There are vast bags of seeds in evidence around the site. The golf course should be available to play by the end of 2009, but I for one will not want it to open before it is good and ready, the back 9 at Roda was opened early due to pressure, and they are still repairing it, so please be just a little more patient – not long now!

The lakes on the golf course are now completely full and really do look daunting from a golfers perspective, the views across the lakes from the majority of phase 1 and 2 properties are fantastic.

A lot of the apartments have now had the name and number plates fitted to the outside of the properties, which means they really are ready for occupation. I was lucky enough to visit a few of the properties, and walk through them, and check them out first hand. Every single one of the rooms I walked through was light and airy with great views. Some will obviously be better than others, but with the patio doors opening right up, it really does bring the outside in – or is it the inside out!? I was very pleased with everything I saw. The ground floor Tilo style properties had amazing terraces and private gardens and a couple of the “frontline” properties had breathtaking views of the golf course and the mountains – I have one of these, so I was very pleased – very pleased indeed!!

Not too much more I can say, just a huge amount of progress from my last visit, much the same as my last report. I hope the pictures will speak for themselves! I would like to add that things are moving on at a great pace, and with a lot of abandoned developments around the world, it really is encouraging that Calidona have men (and women) working around the clock to deliver this fantastic resort that keeps getting better and better!

I am aware that this is a tough time for a lot of people and I do not say that lightly. If you can just hang in there I have no doubt that this will be the golf resort that everybody wants to own property on just a couple of years from now. As we drove around the resort we remarked again and again that this is truly set to be the premier golf resort in Spain, and surely one of the finest golf resorts in Europe. Yet again its big thumbs up for Corvera Golf and Country Club, I hope you enjoy the photos and you find this latest update interesting, I hope it was worth waiting for, and the next report will show A GOLF COURSE!!

If you need any help with your completion of your property at Corvera please just get in touch.

Please leave your comments below as all feedback is greatly appreciated.

PS We also have some big “panoramic” shots that our photographer is assembling now, they should be with you this week!

    Thank you Stuart for taking the time to update us. I know you have been very busy. Fantastic photos and write up, as always. It’s amazing how many times you end up looking at these photos, each time noticing something different. Let’s hope you’re right about Phase 3, the Licence does seem a long time coming. Anyway, keep up the fantastic work!

    Kind regards, Anita.

    Great update and photos. Thanks for your time and effort doing this each month – this is great for us in the UK to be kept updated – something that we have not had from Calidona.

  3. Steve & Janeon 16 May 2009 at 8:54 pm

    Another great report to get us all excited and they haven’t even got permission to build my apartment yet (shouldn’t be long though). Poor Anita’s about to explode with anticipation but we’ll all be there to help put her back together. These monthly photo albums are a huge comfort to those of us who can only get over to see the development once or twice a year. Looks like we’ve got a lovely little park right in front of us on the entrance roundabout then.Photos certainly show the quality of detail put in by Calidona. My next visit will be in August, until which I will just have to rely on Stuart for updates. Keep up the good work Stuart your photo reports are absolutely brilliant.
    Best Regards…Steve

    Stuart, thank you very much for once again providing an informative and encouraging update. I access the website every day to make sure I’m not missing anything and it’s wonderful to hear the good news and see the progress being made. I’ll look forward to your next article, hoping you can fit everything in with your busy workload.

    Thanks so much for yet another fantastic update and once again the photos really show how much progress has been made. I can’t wait to get back over, it’s all coming together beautifully.

    your photosd and reprots are a great comfort to mke as i have purchased on phase 3 and as mentioned previously have become nervous and anxious about the lack of informamtion forthcoming from Calidona.

    Your reports keep re assuring me that my purchase was a positive move.

    Hopefully the completion date of June/July next year will be realised and that the economy is in a better shape by then.

    I am planning to go over for a visit in Aug/Sept this year. To gai n aceess to the site do i need to pre book with Calidona for an escorted site visit or can we just tunr up?

    Also i would like to open a bank account and process my NIE number.

    I would appreciate some advice on these 2 items. Can i simply walk into a bank and open an account and visit the National police station with my completed forms.

    Advice from anyone already completed these activities would be welcomed

    Stuart, I can’t add anymore than those comments above. Once again many thanks for your time and photo’s they really are tops.


  8. Steve & Janeon 18 May 2009 at 9:14 am

    Hi Peter.
    Yes you can walk into a bank and open an account, as we did with Caja Murcia.
    Your Spanish lawyer should be able to provide you with NIE application forms to fill out and then he can deal with obtaining them without you having to attend the police station, as we did with Pedro @ Martinez Echevarria.
    We too will be on phase-3 overlooking the roundabout (now a brand new unexpected communal park).
    If you want any more details then try the corvera forum on eyeonspain.com where you can also pm me.

    I have said it before, a big thank you as these pictures bring the site alive for those of us who are still waiting for the building to start( I am Phase 3 near the security gate). Looking forward to my change of lifestyle in 2010/2011.

    Best wishes Melanie and Phil

  18. Garryon 27 May 2009 at 4:48 pm

    I like the updates but, due to system issues, I am unable to see pictures. Is there any other way of seeing the pictures? I am on phase 2 and am interested in seeing the progress as I suspect our completion will be in the next two months.

  19. adminon 27 May 2009 at 4:55 pm

    Hi Garry, I’m Tom, the website developer here at corveragolfinfo, with your permission I can email you with regards to the pictures. There are multiple ways to see them, so I am sure we can rectify the situation.

  20. Gary and Janet Wilsonon 22 Oct 2009 at 9:37 pm

    Well Stuart! what can i say, only we have just come back from Corvera last week in fact it is looks fantastic.
    i would clearly like to thank your wonderful management company due to a couple of snagging problems we where unable to stay in our property when we arrived we were met by Chris Dean who i can say was wonderful he could not do enough for us , he arranged for us to stay at roda were Gillian
    was there to meet us and looked after us she also couldnt do enough for us.
    i can honestly say if that is the standard of cleaning (very high standard) and management we were more than happy, we did actually move into our property three days later with most of the snagging done,again thanks to Chris for his help and back up he looked after us so well we could not wish for better so friendly and helpful we now have to great friends in Chris and Gillian good luck to you all we choose the best.

    With kind Regards Gary and Janet
