2012 was a great year for Condado De Alhama, so many changes and improvements. Hundreds of new owners are now a part of our community and despite worries we now have enough facilities on site to never have to leave. Take a look back at our year and know that in 2013 the plans for Condado will make it even better.
In January 2012, we were talking about the Club House, wondering and worrying if we were ever going to have one. News came that IRM planned to move the old Polaris World office onto the golf course. It looked like this….

Now just one year later, it looks like this and sits proudly on the Jack Nicklaus golf course. Condado De Alhama now has a club house.
In February 2012. The much loved Clover Bar was opened under new management, thus giving birth to the privately owned Al Kasar commercial units and opportunities. IRM, the new owners of Condado De Alhama had purchased Al Kasar and intended to lease the units privately. Lynn and Neil peeled themselves away from the already operating Condado Club Sports and Social centre and began serving you in The Clover. Can you believe that was a year ago in February. Our resident real estate agent Rupert at Quality homes also opened his office to serve your real estate needs in Al Kasar, responsible for helping and representing many of the new businesses that opened during the year.

In March 2012, The Condado Club released their new look and new menu. After extending the kitchen and adding some colour, the old look of The Surgery..was gone. The Condado Club organized kids entertainment throughout all the school holidays, started their bike hire program and became the base for the kids and family entertainment throughout the year. The club run by Paul and Rachel is today, a friendly family cafe/bar and entertainment venue. After opening their new function room it is hard to beat their versatility.
