Corvera Golf update – August 2010

August 16th, 2010

I must start by apologising for such a delayed update. We have a few photos to go with this latest Corvera update, however we have all been so busy over the summer that it has been impossible to find time to take some photos and provide some much needed information.

Great reviews from the Golf Course

We are now starting to receive some great reviews for the golf course. Family and friends of Corvera owners are now travelling from Torrevieja, Alicante, Villamartin, and more locally, Hacienda del Alamo, to play the golf course regularly – and they are loving it.

Roda Golf owners, and golf rights owners, have their own society (of which I am a member) and Corvera is now one of our preferred courses to play. We also plan to have some of our “society away days” at Corvera, which again is great news for improving the profile of Corvera Golf and Country Club.

The golf course is starting to play well, and it looks great! The course is getting plenty of water, and when the rain eventually comes in September, there will be a new wave of growth and maturity visible in just a few weeks. There are plenty of players on the golf course, and for the most part all positive reports.

Plenty of completions

Some excellent news from the developer is that they have been very busy through June and July with owners completing the purchase of their properties at Corvera. It would appear that the banks are starting to lend again, and that has helped Corvera with over forty new completions over the summer!

The Corvera Clubhouse

Regarding the clubhouse, I have met with the senior management team at Corvera and like everybody else they are frustrated regarding the lack of progress on the clubhouse. I am assured it is the most important thing for them at the moment and it looks like May 2011 is the new completion date, but that is not official yet.

The discussion centres around the fact that until a certain number of owners have completed the purchase, the clubhouse would not be a viable commercial proposition. I believe the magic number is 500 completions – and I believe they are pretty close.

Now please don’t shoot the messenger here! I am merely passing on any information I can gather to share it with all Corvera owners, I offer no opinion regarding this.

Plenty of people around and about!

My on-site roving reporter, Chris Dean, has reported that there are lots of people milling around at present, some of the swimming pools are actually quite busy. Miguel’s bar is extremely busy, with a BBQ planned for this weekend (Friday the 13th) OMG, just realised the date, hope you superstitious people out there are all ok today!

Loads of people now enjoying the resort including my old friends John and Amanda Anderton who are almost permanent fixtures on-site now. Chris Smith and his lovely wife Corinne have now moved in to their lovely new Magnolia house and are very happy, Mr and Mrs Dave Bond, who have recently moved on to Corvera in to their new Canela villa, they have a lovely new swimming pool and are loving it! Good luck folks for your new life in Spain.

There have been a number of recent completions who I have helped, I won’t mention names, you know who you are. Good luck with your new homes and holiday homes in the sun, look forward to seeing you all at Corvera very soon.

More airport progress

The new airport is now making huge progress and it definitely looks like next year will be a big here for Spain’s newest airport at Corvera. The location for Corvera Golf and Country Club is superb anyway, but with this new international airport and trans-Atlantic airport right on the doorstep, the signs look positive.

We are still busy helping people regarding their completions at Corvera, particularly those on phase 3 and 4 who are unsure of how best to proceed, please get in touch if you think we can be of any assistance, we will be only too happy to help.

That is about it for now, many more photos and new update in September.

    Can you tell me when the golf course will be open to the public, or can a booking be made for non owners.

    Hi Stuart, i am intrigued that people are prepared to have a “society day” at the course when there is no clubhouse! is it bacon sarnies and a cuppa at miguels for the 19th?
    Country club is a tad misleading me thinks!
    is it me or does the course look a bit ragged in the pictures? seems to be quite a lot of bare patches?

    I don’t know why you are intrigued regarding a society wanting to play the Corvera golf course, it is a lovely golf course and in a superb location with fabulous views, everything a golfer would want and whilst a golf clubhouse would be preferred, I can assure you that there is no shortage of places to eat and have a beer nearby and yes maybe a bacon sarnie.

    The full and correct name for the development / resort is Corvera Golf and Country Club, why is it misleading for me to use the correct name?

    Yes the golf course has some patches because it is new, Roda Golf looked worse when opened particularly the back 9, it is the best looking course in the region now, watch this space.

    Hi Frank,
    I am led to believe that the course will be opened to the paying public very soon, but I do not think they will turn people away now, so imminent.

    Hi Stuart,
    Thanks for all the updates re Corvera.I am not a resident but am hoping to rent in Corvera Golf next summer.We have spent the last few summers renting in La Torre and are very familiar with that area and the coast but not so Corvera.My only concern is re eating/drinking facilites nearby.The clubhouse might be completed by then but could you tell me what is available at the moment on site or nearby.Also are there tennis or padel court available ?Many thanks for your help.Keep up the good work.

    Hi Tommy,
    Glad to hear you are coming to Corvera next year, please let us know how you get on.
    Tennis, paddle tennis, horse riding and jumps, loads of swimming pools, great walks and cycling trails all available, clubhouse will almost certainly be available next summer, but plenty of restuarants available in town of Corvera and nearby, also contact Chris Dean by telephone on 0034 607 831152 for further info, he is the resident expert and very helpful.

    Hi

    I have recently completed and spent 3 weeks at corvera, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good eating place nearby in Fuento Alamo and in Murcia, which are 8 and 15 minutes away.
    I must however say am not to impressed with the after sale service, once they had my money very difficult to get any info or reaction from Corvera on faults, and problems. Resort great, aftersale service terrible. Check everything before completing and get everything sorted before you sign.
