Rio Real Golf Club

Rio Real golf is one of the top courses in Marbella on the Costa del Sol

Rio Real Golf
Rio Real Golf was designed by Javier Arana and opened in 1965, par 72 the front 9 is a gently rolling terrain and the back nine is quite flat.

An old favourite of many regular golfers on the Costa del Sol, Rio Real Golf  provides a good test for all handicappers and the open fairways means you can usually find your ball.

Rio Real GolfThe mature setting with many palm trees and plants give it a true Mediterranean feel. The courses signature hole is the long par-4 4th hole with its sea view. From the 4th tee check out the position of the 5th green to your left as it is blind shot from your approach up the 5th fairway.

The two most difficult holes on the Rio Real golf if you have not played it before is the 8th which requires two really accurate long shots to reach the green and the 10th which is a blind 90 degree dogleg.

A nice hole for the longest drive is the 14th and the 13th for nearest the pin (though all the par 3’s a short). The course is one of the more walkable tracks if you need a bit of exercise. There are several water fountains on the course and a drinks buggy.

The Hotel Rio Real is for players wishing to stay near the golf course whilst close to Marbella centre and many other top golf courses along the Costa del Sol
