Guadalmina Golf Guide
Guadalmina Golf Club is one of the most established golf resorts on the Costa del Sol and a perfect destination to enjoy golf holidays. Just a 10-minute drive from central Marbella and Puerto Banus, the club offers of two different courses : Guadalmina Sur (south course) and Guadalmina Norte (north course)
The Guadalmina Sur ( South Course ) is generally regarded as the better of the two courses and can be quite tough in places, so the higher handicappers, in particular, will enjoy the challenge. However, the Guadalmina South course is undeniably one of the best courses you can play on the Costa del Sol and if you can find the extra Euros for around here you will not leave disappointed. It oozes class from the first to the last hole and is a real joy to play.
The parkland design is quite special with quality fairways and greens that will make you work for your par. This course has some stunning holes as it flows around the upmarket Guadalmina urbanisation. One of the signature holes is the stunning Par 3 Hole 11.
It is in a breathtaking location on the edge of the sea with the Rock of Gibraltar as a stunning backdrop, anything goes from a six-iron to a hybrid straight !, depending on wind direction on the day !!
The fairways are well protected by old well-established trees so straight shots are required to bypass them and line yourself up for the all-important second shot.
The North course is shorter and more hillier than the south and has more water obstacles. It is comparatively easier than the South although it is characterised by a slightly more hilly terrain in places. The course meanders around quite a lot of properties which are quite close to the course in places and can be off-putting, so if you are looking for a more natural quiet country course this is not for you.
Having said that take away the properties and the course layout is interesting and well maintained. The north course requires straight drives down the middle of the fairways to miss the numerous water hazards hidden in the rough.
