Los Arqueros San Pedro de Alcántara 18 Holes

Los Arqueros Golf Course

An exciting course winding through two valleys that offer impressive views down to the coast.

Designed by Ballesteros in 1991, the course appeals to attacking players prepared to make bold shots. Not very long, but sometimes tight with hazards constantly in play, which may lead to overcaution. Since its purchase by the Taylor Woodrow construction group, heavy investment has been made to improve course conditioning and remove the unfair punishment of slightly mishit shots.Visible from the Ronda road.

Atalaya Golf San Pedro de Alcántara 18 Holes

Atalaya Old Course

Pleasant, flat parkland course with many bunkers, wide fairways and elevated greens.

While the experts might find the challenge a little limited, the average club golfer will certainly find it quite enough to handle as the greens are sharply contoured and quick. Without attaining the standard of some of the other courses in the region, Atalaya has enough going for it to warrant a visit - as its enduring popularity since 1968 will testify.

Atalaya represents good value for money.

Atalaya Rosner San Pedro de Alcántara 18 Holes

Atalaya Rosner Golf Course

A pleasure for the most demanding golfer, Atalaya Rosner Golf Course requires accuracy off the tee and a steady putter on the green.

Although deceptive at the beginning among the wide flat fairways, Atalya Rosner soon shows its teeth by rising into the foothills and winding inland towards Ronda. The return leg offers golfers a gentle wander down the fairways of the older course to the chalet style clubhouse.

This Robert Trent Jones design opened in 1969 and is recognised as one of Europe's finest courses. It hosted the World Cup twice, the Spanish Open three times and as well as the Mediterranean Open. Water is a major feature and must be crossed or avoided on twelve holes.

Cabopino Golf

Inaugurated in April 2001. 18 holes with a par of 71 laid out by little-known Spanish architect Juan Ligues is short but very tight in places.

La Cala Campo Norte Mijas Costa 18 Holes

La Cala North Golf Course

la cala north courseIn the words of architect Cabell B.Robinson, La Cala North is situated 'on the limits of where it is possible to successfully build a course.' But, what a job he has done with this hilly terrain!

The North course begins with what must be the highest raised tee in existence and finishes with a 'ski slope', dogleg par 5 to a narrow green. In between there are some classic holes that will punish the unwary but are never unfair. The optical illusions created by the general relief of the course call for careful club selection before every shot presenting a challenge any good golfer will relish.

La Cala Campo Sur Mijas Costa 18 Holes

La Cala South Golf Course

Service is professional at the American style country club philosophy at La Cala.

The South Course opened in 1990 and happily avoids the massive developments; its undulating, spectacular terrain provides various degrees of difficulty. The 10th is considered La Cala's toughest par 5 at the par 3 11th hole the tee shot must cross a ravine and the second shot must clear water.

La Cañada Guadiaro 9 Holes

La Cañada Golf Course

La Cañada is a fitting tribute to the people of Guadiaro who became golf addicts overnight with the emergence of Sotogrande.

The full length Trent Jones course is located in the hills adjacent to Valderrama and is open to the smae winds. The long first hole sets the tone for a tough round of golf and the 4th is a trek into the unknown with no view of the green until the third shot.

La Duquesa Estepona 10km 18 Holes

La Duquesa Golf Course

La Duquesa Golf ClubLa Duquesa Golf Course is a typical Trent Jones layout demanding concentration and straight driving.

Winding around El Hacho beacon hill overlooking the Mediterranean to Africa, La Duquesa in terms of facilities, is probably the most complete club on the coast, with tennis, squash, gym, sauna, jacuzzi, bowls, yacht harbour and of course, golf.

At the spectacular 17th, just 129 metres tee to green but 30 metres straight down, you should beware of the wind especially if the poniente is blowing from the west. The views may play havoc with your scoring.

Estepona Golf Estepona 18 Holes

Estepona Golf Course

A popular, family-run course with a challenging layout, particularly when windy.

In contrast with larger, more manicured courses, the natural appearance is maintained with wild flora and fauna still much in evidence just off the fairways. The signature hole is the third, a very long par 5 known as "The Ski Slope", though the difficulties lie more in club selection when assessing ground relief. Greens are of good quality, well-designed and interesting to play.

Since it opened in 1989, Estepona has invested to improve course drainage as the high clay content of the terrain is noticeable on rainy days.

Guadalmina Norte San Pedro de Alcántara 18 Holes

Guadalmina North Golf Course

Lakes, streams, fountains and the river Rio Guadalmina combine to make golf at Guadalmina Norte a very refreshing experience.

Guadalmina now has a total of 45 golf holes, two 18 hole courses and a new nine hole pitch and putt. Considered less difficult than the South Course, it was designed by Folco Nardi and opened in 1975. At the 11th you drive over a small lake and a fountain placed just before the green whilst at the par 4 17th the river comes into play. Most competitions are played on the North Course.

Guadalmina Sur San Pedro de Alcántara 18 Holes

Guadalmina South Golf Course

Wide fairways winding between stands of pine and jacaranda trees temp you at Guadalmina Sur Golf Course, one of the coast's oldest residents.

Considered the more difficult of Guadalmina's 45 holes, it is the Costa del Sol's second oldest golf course. The raised greens are an encouragement to attack the pin. Henry Cotton named the long seventh hole Tipperary as it's a long way to go! At the fifteenth there is a bunker waiting to catch anything that falls short and from the tee, tunnel vision is an advantage in order to successfully drive between two stands of tall pine.

Mijas Golf - Los Lagos Fuengirola 18 Holes

Los Lagos Golf Course

Mijas Golf boasts two terrific designs laid out by Robert Trent Jones.

Los Lagos, the original course built in the mid-1970s, is a flat, long championship course with waterhazards and large greens. Enjoyable for long hitters but also accommodating to those with a slice. Wide fairways with little rough means Mijas has become the most successful commercial course on the Costa del Golf.

Mijas Golf - Los Olivos Fuengirola 18 Holes

Los Olivos Golf Course

Los Olivos is currently undergoing extensive renovation work to bring the course back to its prime after 18 years of heavy usage. New irrigation systems, replacing tees and a redefinition of greens to USGA standards means that the homeward loop of Los Olivos will be closed until November 2001.

Greens are smaller and many are elevated. The par 3 14th is the most spectacular hole with magnificent panoramic views from the raised tees. Mijas Golf is a hospitable club with a pay-as-you-play policy. There are regular competitions to keep everyone interested.

Miraflores Mijas Costa 18 Holes

Miraflores Golf Course

Miraflores is both beautiful and challenging, especially for those who enjoy their golf with elevated greens and water.

Miraflores is one of the Costa del Sol's top leisure and resort developments. Located in the hills above Mijas Costa it offers breathtaking views of the countryside down to the sea. The course has a number of elevated greens which require some tough walking so a buggy is often a good idea. The 18th green is tricky with severe slopes. Watch out for the 15th hole, where water forms a moat around the green.

Montemayor Benahavis 18 Holes

Montemayor Golf Course

The most extravagant course in the whole region and possibly in the whole of Spain.

Visitors either love or hate this baroque masterpiece laid out through rocks, gorges and amidst wild vegetation in 1989 by the genial Pepe Gancedo. Target golf with fairly lenient local rules that favour the brave; any lost ball is considered to be in a side water hazard.

During the first decade of its existence, Monte Mayor gained a certain notoriety for the difficult access along a mountain track. The club can now be reached via a new asphalted road and is signposted from the Benahavis road.
