Guests at the Barceló Tambor hotel can take advantage of a complimentary 18-hole round on the golf course for each night of their stay.
This spectacular, competitive golf course built from its foundations by Barceló Group is located in the midst of beautiful tropical surroundings. The golf course's refurbishment was undertaken by Ulrich Lang, a Class A Superintendent since 1998 and a member of the GCSAA (Golf Course Superintendent Association of America).
The new design is steeped in more drama and improves viewing by spectators. The objective was to improve upon quality and rise to the strategic challenges presented by the golf course, at the level of environmental concerns, with a view to reduce maintenance issues when changing the bunkers. Ulrich Lang worked on replacing the drainage system for the bunkers and changed their design to turn them into typical British/European bunkers. These bunkers are respectful of the tropical climate and are better suited to handle rainfall than the previous bunkers were. Lastly, the bunkers mixed with new white sand are now available to guests.
