Here are a few golf top class courses to wet your appetite
This course is unusual in that it makes no attempt to go head to head with the big boys but prefers to stay low key and offer good quality golfing for all abilities at very reasonable prices.
The course is hugely enjoyable and whereas the premium courses are something of a treat this is a very agreeable old favourite.
The club house is a decent size and the perfect place to grab a drink and something to eat after completing the 27 holes.
San Roque Golf – Old Course
The old bit was added after the new San Roque appeared in 2003 and when you compare the difficulty of the two this one is more refined and therefore a tad more challenging.
We feel this course is perfect for those with a handicap up to 25 but also has enough features to appeal those who boast one of 10 or below.
Playing this Championship par 72 course is real delight and those who have been before will be anticipating finishing their round and heading into one of the most sumptuous golf courses you will find anywhere.
Valderrama Golf Club
Considered by many to be THE course on the Costa del Sol and will always be remembered for the 2007 Ryder Cup which the legendary Seve brought to this course.
This is a course of the highest calibre and a round doesn’t come cheap here but what price do you put on walking the fairways and putting on the greens which have been graced by legends of the game?
La Reserva Golf Club
This very large and very flat course is rated by many experts as being one of the top 10 courses in Spain, so who are we to argue?
It is the simplicity of the design which makes this course such an enjoyable one to play, along with the few unexpected challenges it throws up along the way.
You wouldn’t expect anything less from one of the leading golf course designers in the world Cabell Robinson, and he certainly hasn’t let us down with La Reserva.
Marbella Golf Club
A tough challenge for players with a high handicap but still hugely enjoyable this is one of our long time favourite courses on the Costa del Sol.
What makes it so appealing is that no two holes are the same so you never get into into a routine and have to be on your toes all the time.
It isn’t officially a championship course which adds to it appeal as it isn’t pretentious in anyway it merely gives golfers a wonderful round in quite glorious surroundings.
