Jaen’s only golf course, La Garza is sited within a municipal park in Linares and is the property of the Andalucian regional government. The 9-hole layout has just been rebuilt by the well known course architect Pepe Gancedo (Torrequebrada, Monte Mayor, etc.). The fairways are defined by cork oaks, pines, cypresses and other indigenous trees and bushes. There are trees in the centre of some greens as well as eight of the course’s nine fairways. Water comes into play on holes 1, 7 , 8 and 9. The original design was traced out 40 years ago and the course was finally built in 1994 when five holes were opened for play.
HOW TO GET THERE
