Local Weather Information

Alcaidesa - Links

Alcaidesa - Links

Par: 72

Length: 5866m

Course designer: Peter Alliss & Clive Clark

Alcaidesa - Links

Alcaidesa Links formed on gentle slopes is formed by gentle slopes descending towards the sea, finishing on a 2km long beautiful beach – which means that most of the holes are alongside the beach.

The difficulty of the course lies mainly in the condition of the prevailing winds in the area. One of the special features of the course which most impresses visitors, is its spectacular view over the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Africa.

Alcaidesa - Heathland

Alcaidesa - Heathland

Length: 6373m

Course designer: Dave Thomas

Alcaidesa - Heathland

Alcaidesa Heathland offers a variety of natural scenery.

The plateau area (holes 1 to 5, 17 and 18) is similar to a heathland, with wide fairways and outstanding views of the Mediterranean. The remainder of the course meanders along the valley and incorporates several water hazards.

Valle Romano Golf

Valle Romano Golf

Par: 71

Length: 6231m

Course designer: Seve Ballesteros

Valle Romano Golf

Valle Romano Golf, in Estepona, is an outstanding 18-hole course, fitted out to play host to the most demanding and prestigious tournaments.

In Valle Romano we look after each detail and pamper the golfer at most. The player is warmly welcomed when arriving. When he finishes the marshall team offer to clean his clubs and shoes as a house courtesy.

With an average 5 tees per hole and spacious greens with many flag positions, as well as overlooking the sea, Valle Romano is a course to enjoy in all senses of the word.

A wooden booth with an interphone has been fitted on the green of the 8th hole for such purpose with a direct line to the restaurant. There is a menu in this booth that contains sandwiches, various sweet and savoury appetizers, soft drinks and energy drinks that players can order as they pass through this part of the course and get at hole 9.

Since Valle Romano was no more than a plan, Seve had given it his backing and did so right up to the end. On our visits to Pedreña, as he battled against his illness, he always wanted to know, "How´s the course going? How are the houses?" Eager for any news, however insignificant it may have been. He would listen to us with endless attention and give his opinion, which was always welcome.

Every player who passes through Valle Romano will take away a special memory of Seve. Hole 9, the most distinctive one on the course, bears his name.



Par: 71

Length: 6234m

Course designer: Robert Trent Jones Snr

Venue: Ryder Cup


Home to the 1997 Ryder Cup and host in November '99 to the World Golf Championships, Valderrama is rated as Europe's No 1 course, and is one of its toughest challenges. Immaculate fairways, notoriously difficult par 5s, super fast greens, everything about this course is stunning. Only a lucky few manage to feel its lush fairways underfoot, as access is very restricted and exclusive.



Par: 72

Length: 6203m

Course designer: Robert Trent Jones Sr

Venue: Spanish Open, European Tour Q School


Sotogrande was founded in 1964 and is located on prime golfing land close to the beachfront between the river Guadiaro and Sotogrande marina. It is regularly voted in the top 10 courses in Europe.

This testing layout from legendary designer Robert Trent Jones features lakes, fast greens, white crushed marble bunkers and a frequently testing wind. There are Bermuda grass fairways while the greens feature typical Trent Jones contours.

Mature vegetation with pine, cork oaks, eucalyptus and giant palm trees add to the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Many top events have been played at Sotogrande with the great Seve Ballesteros clinching the Spanish PGA here in 1987.

San Roque - Old

Designed by Dave Thomas with bunkers redesigned by Seve Ballesteros, San Roque is a long course with wide fairways and is divided clearly into two areas, one area being lined with mature cork oak trees and the other having water hazards as the main feature. The San Roque Old Course is rated amongst the finest in Europe.

La Reserva Golf Club

La Reserva Golf Club

La Reserva Club de Golf is a recent addition for golfers in this exclusive area of Costa del Sol, just a short drive from Almenara Resort, Sotogrande and Valderrama.

La Reserva is located within two adjacent valleys. The Course is long but the fairways are wide so you can afford to open your shoulders with generous fairways. The greens are on the large size but it is one thing to be on the putting surface in regulation and another to avoid three putting when a long way from the pin position! Water features at half a dozen holes, but apart from one hole, it does not present itself as a frontal hazard.

Both the inward and outward 9’s have par threes separated by long par fives. Notable holes on the front side include the 244-yard 6th with water pressurising the tee shot to the left of the green and the 205-yard 8th which is played downhill to a putting surface which also has water to the left and bunkers front right. On the back nine, the 180-yard 14th has only one bunker to the right of the green and the 159-yard 16th is played from an elevated tee to a tricky, shallow putting surface.

La Reserva Golf Club is a very picturesque course which presents a challenge to all golfers, the perfect addition to your golf holiday.
