Santana golf Course Guide
The Santana Golf & Country Club is an 18 hole golf course par 72 of approx. 6208 meters off the white tees and 5654 meters off the yellow tees. It is set in 138 acres of tranquil and picturesque parkland. It was designed quite brilliantly by well know course architect Cabell B. Robinson, and is set in a former avocado plantation and provided the perfect natural solution for this able designer. The result is a magnificent course with wide and well-defined fairways on level terrain, and where water features play an important although not excessive part in the finished design.
Each hole has two championship tees and two tees for general play for both men and ladies, with wide and excellently manicured putting greens which are surrounded by strategically placed bunkers, filled with sand made from crushed marble.
The whole course layout and surroundings are simply quite stunning and set in a beautiful natural environment, the course is scattered by avocado trees left over from the original plantation, and many other trees and plants indigenous to Spain and the local area including although eucalyptus, orange and lemon trees, cactus, pines, fig-trees, olive and mango trees, this along with a varied population of indigenous birds, such as the Calzada Eagle make this a unique enclave. There is an old cork tree by the 5th hole which is over 500 years old, very impressive.
The Santana golf course is technically speaking a demanding course as the unique design of each hole is intended to give a continuous challenge, even for the more experienced player. The big hitters can let off steam on holes 4 and 8, the two long par 5s and everyone will enjoy the large sprawling undulating greens, which will test even the best of players.
Although the club does have a good fleet of new electric buggies I would recommend walking Santana to fully enjoy its natural beauty. To sum up, Santana is quite simply spectacular and should be on the itinerary of any golf holiday to the Costa del Sol.
