Corvera Golf and Country Club – Report March 2010

March 16th, 2010

Welcome to the March update for the Number one information web site for Corvera Golf and Country Club.

Playing the course

Firstly – at long last I have played the golf course! The greens are fantastic and the tee boxes are nearly ready, in good condition, and they just need about three months of sun with some rain and I think they will be complete. The fairways are some way from being perfect, I would say about 6-9 months will get them there. However, they are still very playable and certainly better than most “snowed off fairways” back in the UK! The good news is that there are greens staff working everywhere on the course.

I played off the white tee boxes as I heard the yellow tees were not much of a challenge – well I will be playing off the yellow tees next time! I found the challenge to be pretty tricky and very long, a really great day out. I played with new owners Gareth and Jackie Summerton and it was Gareth playing off a handicap of 6 that won the day.

Construction continuing

I bumped in to several owners walking around the development. Quite a few people having moved in now, so it was good to see a few people about. The only thing missing for now is some life breathed in to the place. Please also remember it has been winter, the weather has been pretty poor really, and only now people are starting to furnish their properties and actually stay on site. So it was great to see owners about. It could well be a busy summer at Corvera!

The café bar on site is now busy every time I go there, and it’s good to see a good mix of nationalities present and a few different languages being spoken. You always get a good welcome here and a wide range of snacks and refreshments awaits you.

The equestrian centre is now well under construction. There are horses on site and it should be ready by the start of Summer. This is quite a big area currently under active development and good to see this much advertised facility being worked on. Some of the photos below will hopefully give you some idea of progress.


The airport at Corvera is still continuing to grow with some of the infrastructure for the terminal buildings now well under construction, please follow this link for further information, Corvera Airport

Meeting some happy owners!

Happy Corvera owners!
Happy Corvera owners!

I have been very busy of late helping Phase 3 owners swap their deposits to properties that have been completed on Phases 1 and 2. I have been liaising with the developer to identify suitable properties for these lucky people, and trying to get them the right price! We have quite a few very happy clients now I am very pleased to say. Corvera clients who were upset and worried about their proposed properties who are now very happy indeed.

One such couple is Stephen and Jacquie Wragg from Tamworth, who kindly posed for some photos on the 18th fairway with their property in the background. They had this to say:

“Thank you Stuart for all your help, we have been having many a sleepless night and wondered if we would ever see our new property! With your help and expert advice, we are very happy to proceed to the completion of our property at last. You have found us a fantastic property and at a great price, we would also like to thank Pablo Buitrago at Corvera for his patience and understanding of our situation, We are now every happy indeed and can not wait to complete our purchase”

Another couple who have returned to the UK very happy indeed are Phil and Wendy Webber from Cardiff who had this to say:

“We would just like to give our thanks to Stuart Thomas of Calida International Properties. Firstly, if we had not stumbled upon his web site www.corveragolfinfo.com with its great information about Corvera with all the photos and updates, we would have still been in the dark about any progress at Corvera. Through this web site we made contact with Stuart and went over to see him last weekend in Spain. As a phase 3 buyer at Corvera we were becoming increasingly concerned about our purchase. We discussed the options with Stuart and on taking his advice decided to swap into phase 2. We are now the proud owners of a fantastic front line property and very much relieved. Stuart’s advice and ongoing support has been invaluable. We are looking forward to completing and spending our first week there. Thanks again Stuart. We strongly recommend anybody with concerns getting in touch with Stuart”

Here to help

Swapping deposits from phase 3 properties (not built yet) to properties that are available now is obviously not right for everybody, I can only offer advice and offer my opinion on each individuals own circumstances. However if this option is something you might be interested in discussing, please feel free to make contact, many clients are taking up this option which is great news for the resort as there will be fewer properties available. I am always available directly on 00 34 680 842 895 or via email on info@calidainternationalproperties.com

I know there are many people, from various phases, exploring all options available and considering legal action for various reasons and I do wish you all well. I do recognise these are very worrying times, but it is great news that people are still enthusiastic about Corvera Golf and Country Club and that they are excited about owning their new home in the sun.

The Clubhouse

There has been no construction work on the clubhouse since the last update I am sorry to say,
however I am assured that construction will commence very soon and will be finished this year,
please see this link for our previous report on the Covera Clubhouse to give you some idea of how it will look when it’s finished.

Like everything the clubhouse is now well overdue, but hopefully it will be worth the wait. Rest assured that as soon as construction begins we will report it here with plenty of photos! We remember when the Roda Clubhouse opened nearly two years ago, of course we were there first with a full report and gallery. That day will come here on Corvera – something to
look forward to!

A word of caution

A word of caution. There are a few companies out there who have managed to get hold of a Corvera owners database. This database has most likely come from former employees of MRI or MacAnthony Realty International, please beware of these company’s trying to sell you Furniture Packs, offering Mortgage products, Property Management services and especially Rental services. They often ask for an “up front” fee and very rarely if ever deliver the service promised and that you have paid for. If you are in any doubt, please don’t work with these people and please never part with any money up front.

The same goes for Real Estate companies charging a fee to market your property for sale, we should all only be paid if we achieve the results for our clients, not one penny should be paid before that!

The sun is back!

Finally, the warmer weather seems to be upon us after a real cold snap this last few weeks. Spring is definitely here and I can not wait to have my next game of golf at Corvera! If anybody fancies a game, please just drop me an email and I would love to join up, maybe play for a beer? Now that definitely sounds like a plan.

    Nice to hear good news on St Patrick’s day for all us Paddies.

    Look forward to meeting you for a game of Golf.
    I can also vouch that the white tees are very challenging.

    Thanks for the up date.

    Dear Stuart, Many thanks for all the information, it has kept us very positive as we think Corvera will be a brilliant place eventually. We will be coming over to Corvera on 20th March for a month and maybe we could have a round of golf and a beer.
    Kind regards, Pelly and Lorraine.

    Hi Stuart

    Thanks for all the swing advice during our knock. Warm weather training did the trick, back down to 5.2. Nice to see a picture of the tree on the back of 9 where you duffed your chip. I won’t tell anyone honest. We have our first guests at Corvera now and they are delighted to have Miguel back at the mini-mart. Even more delighted that his keg sherry has returned with him. Restaurants in town have also been given a thumbs up. Totally agree with golf course reviews. A few more bunkers to tighten up the course and it will be a cracker whilst stay enjoyable for the higher handicapper. Take it easy

    I have played the course and loved it. Greens were fantastic (that was is Jan) – Hope that we get some growth weather and course can be played in it’s full glory. Love to have a game with you and after winning – I’ll still buy you a beer….

    Glad to hear you are enjoying our regular updates and photos, good luck with loan approval and ultimately completing your purchase at last!
    I have no further news regarding the hotel and commercial centre, however we are still being told that work on the clubhouse at Corvera is due to be started and indeed completed this year.
