Marbella Golf & Country Club

Marbella Golf & Country Club is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just five minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Marbella. It is considered one of the best and most challenging golf courses in Europe.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior in the late 80’s and occupying one of the largest remaining green areas on the Costa del Sol, the 6.000 metre long 18-hole links course with a par of 72, has been imaginatively designed to respect the natural terrain and make the most of the spectacular Mediterranean backdrop.

Each hole is uniquely challenging, although the 9th hole in particular, featuring several lakes and bunkers, is guaranteed to put even the most skilful golfer to the test.

 

Marbella Golf Resort

Marbella Club Golf Resort is situated right in the heart of the Costa del Sol or the Costa del Golf at the foot of the Benhavis mountains.

If you confuse this course with Marbella Golf which is quite some distance away you will probably miss your tee off time so please take note of the directions before setting out to play.
This course was designed by Dave Thomas who has created some well known and memorable courses around Spain and Portugal. It is a very technical course requiring accurate shots will need all the clubs of your bag. Also the roughs are unrelenting therefore one needs to keep in the fairways. The most challenging are the 3rd which is an uphill dog leg right and the 9th , beware of the trees in the middle of the fairway and the one guarding the approach to the green.

 

Magna Marbella Golf Club

The Magna Marbella Golf course was designed by Jose Maria Elguezabel and has 9 holes between 125 and 275 metres , Par 29. Jose Maria has used the contours of the land well creating a course that has both easy and difficult holes which allows players of all levels to enjoy this picturesque par 3 course. The course lays to the west of the famous golf valley of Nueva Andlaucia in Marbella and enjoys fantastic views over the mountains and surrounding countryside of this famous part of Andalucia.

Mijas Golf

This is by far two of the most popular golf courses on the costa el Sol.

The courses, Los Lagos and Los Olivos, are situated in the valley of Mijas, north of Fuengirola, only twenty minutes from the Málaga international airport and Marbella, and 3.5 kms. from the sea.

Los Lagos is the oldest and dates back to 1976 and is one of the largest on the coast It is characterised by wide open fairways, large raised greens and more than a sprinkling of bunkers, it has a very open feeling and always though of as one the easiest courses on the coast hence its overwhelming popularity. By contrast the second, newer course Los Olivos is shorter and narrower with little water but is more ondulating with lots of trees to navigate.

La Canada

Club de golf La Canada is the first municipal course on the Costa del Sol. Originally built for the workers and green keepers of Valderrama, which has the largest number of golfers in Spain, the La Canada golf course has turned out to be a pretty good course for itself and offers a nice round of golf for everyone.

The locals have the Glen for a favourite on the 9th hole. The course is designed with well groomed fairways and greens.
