Palomarejos Golf will be played as a 5936 meters par 72 course. It is located in a privileged estate in Talavera de la Reina spaning over 160 hectares. The course overlooks the Sierra de Gredos and Montes de Toledo. It was built in 2004 by architect Rubèn Palacios Setvalls.
Palomarejos Golf is a very technical course with obstacles placed in landing areas leading players to reflect upon their strategy as each hole poses a risk, rewarding therefore those who establish a precise strategy.
It has a careful design of the natural environment and five large lakes throughout the course which help create ideal habitats for aquatic animals that together with the flora, favor the development of an important ecosystem.
The 2023 Alps De Las Castillas is promoted and organized by JGolf.
