The championship course has wide fairways and big, raised greens which is challenging to golfers of all levels. It is established and mature and enjoys stunning views of the impressive La Concha mountain. It is it’s an ideal oasis of tranquillity on the Costa del Sol that is generally bustling and lively. Its seemingly benign parkland facet with gradually sloping fairways makes it a great course for the regular} club golfer, but at the same time, the abundance of deep bunkers full of glistening marmolina sand, its fast greens, and well maintained fairways lined with olive, pine, cactus and eucalyptus trees provide a decent test even to low single-figure players.
