You will be aware that no public transport currently serves La Torre Golf Resort. A petition has been started to try and persuade the two local bus companies Lycar and Latbus to divert existing services so they serve La Torre.
The petition reads:
There are a total of over 6,700 properties on La Torre Golf Resort, El Valle Golf Resort, Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort and Las Terrazas de la Torre Golf Resort. At present, there are no bus stops outside any of these four resorts.
For each of the owners who have signed on the Padrón, Central Government allocates funding to the local council for better public services. Yet we are not seeing the benefit of this extra funding, with regard to public transport. I am calling on the management of Lycar and Latbus bus companies to provide these resorts with better public transport, for which we are already indirectly contributing.
We are not suggesting that buses run through the resorts, nor that new bus services are created, but that the existing bus services make a short diversion and stop outside the gates.
Better public transport will enhance the area and not only benefit the owners at the resorts but also local businesses. And of course, more passengers using the buses can only be good for the bus companies.
We encourage all owners, residents and visitors to La Torre to sign the petition by clicking HERE

There have been a few discussions around the idea of setting up a golf society within La Torre. Most of the interest seems to have come from owners who are non-residents but who visits regularly and would like to play. It would really need a resident to set this up and manage it but no one has stepped forward so far. Obviously, most people who have purchased a property are likely to have at least one family member who is keen on golf but infrequent visits mean it is hard to meet other golfers keen to play.
Use of the golf course by non golfers is DANGEROUS. The community has issued warnings about this previously in both 2015 and 2016. The warning can be found here.
Unfortunately, the misuse continues despite requests to owners, residents and visitors by both the Community and GNK who manage the course. GKN have today issued this press release
