29370 Rincón de la Victoria
Designed by José María Caizares, one of the heroes of the Ryder Cup, Añoreta was the second golf course to be built on the east side of the Costa del Sol. When the club was opened in 1990 the course only had nine holes, but now it has 18.Its water hazards are its main feature as they from a part of eleven of the holes and surround the green on the 17th on three sides. The 3rd and 8th are the most spectacular and difficult holes of all. The former, a 525-metres par-five, affords marvellous views of the sea from its tee. The latter, a par-four with a dog-leg to the right, is plagued with difficulties. The par-three 17th is also worth mentioning as a lake has to crossed before reaching the green. Cañizares has designed a course which is suited to all golfers, from beginners to experienced players and pros. With a total length of 5,976 metres from the amateur tees, all the course's fairways and greens are wide. Its lush vegetation and great expanses of water enhance its natural beauty. And its long par make it necessary to use strength, precision and patience. AñoretaGolf is situated only 7,5 miles to the east of Málaga, and to get to the club it’s best to take the Rincón de la Victoria bypass or go through the village itself, which has always been a popular summer resort of the inhabitants of Málaga.
2. El Candado
Address: Urb. El Candado, c/ Golf 2
Founded in 1925, Malaga´s Real Club de Campo was designed by the famous Scottish course designer, Tom Simpson, one of the most important architects at the beginning of the century. One part of the course streches parallel to the sea while another is set between avenues of strategically placed trees. The surroundings are home to hundreds of parakeets adding a splash of colour to the country club and filling the environs and the natural saltwater lagoons with their song. The course was chosen by the PGA European Tour as the venue of the inaugural match of the Tourespaña Andalusian Master Open in 1992. Introduced in 1941, the club has hosted the Iberian Cup for the last fifty years. Situated in the beautiful countryside between Malaga and Torremilinos the club, due to its priviledge location, is an excellent starting-point for any of the attractive routes which cover the Costa del Sol and the province of Malaga´s interior.
The Guadalhorce Golf club, with its impressive Andalusian mansion built at the end of the 18th century, is a green oasis in the midst of the busy capital. it has become one of the best and most hospitable clubs on the Costa Del Sol, hosting more than 60 championships a year, the most important being the Vega del Guadalhorce grand prix. Two years after being opened, the course was the venue of the Spanish Men's Singles and Doubles championships.

Although not without their difficulties, the first nine holes stretch over gentle hillocks with trees characteristic of dry farming land. The final part of the course is reminiscent of those in California, completely grass covered with lakes compounding the hole's difficulty and more tropical vegetation. As with Californian courses, it also has a large and tricky greens. next to the practise ground, near to the greens of the 7th and 9th there is a delightful rest area. Given its tropical vegetation with abundance of palms, willows and yuccas, the land surrounding the club House has a distinct American flavour to it. Is the ideal venue for celebrating all types of championship.
4. Club De Campo
Address: Parador de Golf Aptdo correos 324
Founded in 1925, Malaga's Real Club de campo was opened by the Spanish Royal family the same year. It was designed by the famous Scottish course designer, Tom Simpson, one of the most important experts at the beginning of this century, who also worked on the Turnberry and Muirfield courses.

5. Lauro Golf
Address: Los Caracolillos
29130 Alhaurin de la Torre
Designd by Falco Nardi and the club house is beautiful, old farm built around a shady patio that is now used as an open-air restaurant.

The course is very gentle and includes nine lakes and numerous orange, lemon, fig and olive trees.
Address: Ctra. Nacional 340, Km. 220
Although the Torrequebrada golf course might seem tortuous and difficult at first sight, there is a very good reason that makes it worthwhile choice: its fantastic views of the sea. Designed by Jose Gancedo, a born nature lover, the club was opened in 1976, and since then it has hosted the Spanish Open as well as a long list of other top-class tournaments. to get to the Torrequebrada from Málaga it's essential to take the motorway and then turn off at Torrequebrada Casino. the club house, about two miles from the Casino, is very popular with regular visitors. The club has a short course with numerous trees and bushes and, as if these natural hazards weren’t sufficient, six of its holes incorporate water hazards and bunkers. An 18 hole course, Torrequebrada is a rare jewel set between the mountains and the sea. The well-kept greens are difficult and their size and inclination make them unique. Another problem to be faced is the strong wind which usually blows in this area. For the average golfer it's complicated and balls are frequently lost. the course is designed to test one's skill on every one of its 18 holes. the water hazards and the bunkers blend in with the 100 or so different varieties of trees and plants. the grass of the fairways and the greens contribute to out of all the holes the 10th and the 16th, both par 4s, are perhaps the most outstanding ones. the former is 383 metres long and the only which has a blind second drive. With the latter, if the tee-off is sufficiently long the second shot will have to be taken downhill towards the elevated green, whose flag will only be partly visible. The majority of birdies have been obtained at the 7th hole and, if the wind is favourable, it's possible to reach the green in one. Among the most important golfing events to be held at Torrequebrada was the 53rd Spanish Open. the club also has tennis and squashy courts, a sauna and a swimming pool. the course occupies a strategic position on the Costa del Sol, between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, and is only 11 miles away from the airport. the Benalmádena motorway borders the course along with the old 340 arterial road, now converted into a dual-carriageway.
Address: Ctra. Fuengirola a Coin - Km 3,5
Opened in 1976, this golf course is 6.348 metres long and, although its fairways are spacious, attention has to be paid to the water hazards and bunkers. There are eight lakes in all and its fairways are really wide. The majority of its greens are elevated and well protected by bunkers. One of the course's most difficult holes is the par-five 18th. Apart from the 18th's slight incline, the rest of the course is practically flat.
Mijas – Los Olivos
Address: Ctra. Fuengirola a Coin - Km 3,5
Los Olivos is the smaller of the two courses at the Mijas Golf International complex. also designed by Robert Trent Jones, it was opened in 1984. It's more irregular and its greens are smaller. The most spectacular hole, although not the most difficult,, is the par-three 14th whose elevated tee affords a marvellous panoramic view of the area. The 6th and 10th are the most treacherous holes of all, since their wide fairways call a lot attention when playing long shots.
Address: Cruce Ctra Mijas Km 6 con Ctra Fuengirola-Alhaurín Km 15
29120 Alhaurin el Grande
Situated behind the mountains of Mijas. It is one of the most ambitious golf courses in Spain. as well Ballesteros' 18-hole course, there is also a small nine-hole course and another 18-hole one for children, on which adults are also allowed to play . Located on then mountainside, the views and surroundings are fabulous. The main course is ideal for both pros and amateurs. Alhaurin Golf, which breaks the mould of the classic type of courses usually found on the Costa del Sol, was opened in September of 1994 by the minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Javier Gómez Navarro. When designing it, Ballesteros has totally respected the endemic vegetation, creating what it undoubtedly one of the best courses on the Costa del Sol. Its location, layout, orientation and climate all go to provide the best conditions for playing golf. After a few rounds so as to get used to the course which, covers an area of 1.500.000m2, it will seem fun and at the same time demanding. With two bunkers on the right and three trees in the middle of its fairway, the 404-metre par-four 9th is the most tricky hole of all. The 429-metre par-four 10th is also taxing, since its tee is located above the fairway and there's a lateral water hazard and a bunker on the left. Moreover, its green is protected by two bunkers also on the left.
9. La Cala Nortre
Address: La Cala de Mijas.
Dirección Postal: Avda. de los Boliches,
72 29640 Fuengirola
Was opened in 1993, this course is higher than the south one, and the 15th hole affords a breathtaking view of Mijas. the 4th and 5th holes are also worth a mention. Both courses are a challenge for any golfer. Marvellous kept, both courses are characterised by their Bermuda Tifway 419 tees and fairways and their Penncross greens. The bunkers filled with crushed marble, add the final American touch. When playing on either of the courses, precision more than strength is recommended after teeing-off and a good shot is needed to reach the elevated greens. The golf academy has a driving range and a large area for practising one's short game. The facilities include squash courts, an indoor pool, a sauna, comfortable lounges, a bar, a restaurant and a well-stocked sports shop.
10. Miraflores Golf
Address: Ctra. de Cádiz, Km. 199
Sintuited between Mijas and Marbella, the surrounding countryside is , like that of most of the courses in the area, quite spectacular with views of both the sea and the mountains. Many species of birds nest around its lakes, thus enhancing the natural beauty of the course. Designed by Falco Nardi, the course was opened to the public in 1990. It is very pleasant and full of interesting challenges for all golfers, whatever their handicap may be. There are various water hazards so concentration is very important as any mistake, however small, could lead to the loss of the ball. The 570-metre par-five 12th is the most difficult hole of all. The lake in the middle of the fairways makes for a tricky second shot. The 520-metre par-five 6th and the 480-metre par-five 14th are also worth a mention.
La Siesta Golf
Address: Urb. Sitio Calahonda
This club is situated a few minutes drive from Marbella which has a large concentration of golf courses that, together with the area´s countryside, beaches and facilities constitute a great tourist attraction. Designed by Enrique Canales, La Siesta is a nine-hole course built around a residencial area. The distance from the tees to the greens differ considerably from hole to hole and, despite being a short course, golfers get the impression that they are playing on a much longer one. The course itself doesn´t present any problems. From the tee of 7th it´s possible to reach the green using a wood. There is a wonderful view of the Mediterranean from the 9th, a must for the thousands of golfers who choose the Costa del Sol as their holiday destination.
Address: Ctra. Nacional 340, Km. 194
Artola is a nine-hole course ideal for both beginners and experience golfers who want to feel that they have played a round of golf without having to go the full 18 holes. Its fairways are short and its oval green are flat. the course was built in 1964 by Jorge Rein Mackinlay. To begin with it only had six holes, then another three were added in 1984. Other members of his family, including José Luis Valcarcel, Luis Rosilla and Juan José Gómez Raggio, also collaborated in its design. The old Artola inn, where the stagecoaches changed horses on their way to Algeciras, Gibraltar and Cádiz from Madrid, was converted into a hotel in 1954, and was later renovated and modernised in 1974 and 1987, but always in keeping with its typical Andalusian architecture.

14. Rio Real
Address: Ctra. de Cádiz, Km. 185

15. La Dama De Noche
Has a course typical of others designed by Robert Trent Jones, being 6.500 metres long, bumpy and plagued with difficulties. the course's 18 holes, which have been built rigorously respecting the area's endemic vegetation, constitute a real test for all golfers, whatever their handicap may be. The bunkers, although numerous, don't pose any great problem.
the greens are large and there are various lakes that make the course attractive and interesting, as there is some difficulty in getting round them. The views from the 12th are breathtaking.
The Golf Club Marbella
Has a course typical of others designed by Robert Trent Jones, being 6.500 metres long, bumpy and plagued with difficulties. the course's 18 holes, which have been built rigorously respecting the area's endemic vegetation, constitute a real test for all golfers, whatever their handicap may be. The bunkers, although numerous, don't pose any great problem. the greens are large and there are various lakes that make the course attractive and interesting, as there is some difficulty in getting round them. The views from the 12th are breathtaking.
The course's lush and varied vegetation includes a large number of trees, making it very beautiful indeed. One of the holes where most attention has to be paid is the par-five 1st, which has a pronounced dog-leg to the left. To approach the green, protected by bunkers, one has to play to the right. the par-five 10th, surrounded by water hazards, is also exciting. The course is narrow and , as mentioned before, full of trees. A number of its holes incorporate complicated water hazards, and three of its par-threes are too long for the average amateur golfer to reach their greens in one. Most of the fairways are up hill and two of them very awkward indeed.
Yet another example of Robert Trent Jones' genius, was opened in 1977 as a public golf course. Situated in the middle of what is known as the "Marbella Golf Valley". One of the course's most outstanding holes is the 12th, protected by a pond. The 14th's 500 metres seem interminable, but the next hole, a par-four, is comparatively short, although it's also protected by a water hazard. The elevated green of the 18th, a par-five, is situated in front of the new club house. The first nine holes are easy enough for all players but the last nine are strictly for pros.
Also designed by Robert Trent Jones, who was the first to introduce target golf in Europe, Las Brisas has hosted a large number of prestigious golf championships, including the Spanish Open and the Mediterranean Open. Long shots aren't sufficient and therefore it's important to use one’s head. The course's grass has been a revelation: Bermuda covering the fairways and Penncross the greens.
20. Guadalmina Notre
Address: Urb. Guadalmina Alta
Situated in the large Guadalmina residential complex, is set around 100 hectares of land, including three miles of coastline. Designed respecting the lush vegetation of this natural reserve. Designed by Falco Nardi Batini in 1973, the northern course wasn't finished until 1983. It follows the Arroyo del Chopo from the Medranas marsh to the sea. The course is so varied that, after a first round of golf full risks, one will certainly be impatient to repeat the experience. its greens are very quick indeed.
Address: Urb. Guadalmina Sur
Situated in the large Guadalmina residential complex, is set around 100 hectares of land, including three miles of coastline. Designed respecting the lush vegetation of this natural reserve. Designed by Javier Arana in 1959, and in 1965 the club hosted its first pro-am championship. The 10th is the most well-known hole of all, since it has a splendid green right by the beach from where it's possible to glimpse the Rock of Gibraltar.
21. La Quinta
Address: Ctra. Ronda, Km. 3,5
Has one of the best equipped club houses on the Costa del Sol. This tortuous, narrow course with its ups and downs, requires precision and stamina. Manuel Piñero and Antonio Garcia Garido designed using good judgement and with the golfers always in mind. It is, however, a course for experienced players, and its hilliness and its narrow fairways are more suited to fit, technical golfers. the club hosted the Open Larios in 1992, in which the best player in
Spain competed, including Severiano Ballesteros and José María Olazábal. It has also been the venue of the Andalusian PGA.
22. Los Arqueros

One of the most important holes is the 14th hole, 300 metre par 4, is tricky as it has elevated tees and a fairways which slopes off the right with a tree bang in the middle of it, as well as a gully. When teeing-off it's important to play to the left so as to avoid the trees. Its green is very undulating and has a bunker on either side. The 13th hole is a par 5 with an elevated tee, from where the ball has to be played on the lower ground protected by various bunkers. Long-hitters try to reach the green with their second shot, although this is very risky because of the presence of a gully.
23. La Zageleta
Address: Ctra. Ronda, Km. 38
24. Monte Mayor
Address: Ctra. N-340, Km. 163,6
The most outstanding feature of the Monte Mayor golf course is its spectacular scenery. It has a total of six bridges connecting the tees with the fairways, and these with the greens. This course is ideal for players who like to take risks. The tee of the 7th hole is elevated and, when teeing-off, it's very important to try to land the ball on an island; the same goes for the second shot. This hole's green is situated nest to a lake, which has a waterfall.
25. El Paraiso
Address: Ctra. Cádiz, Km. 167
The course adapts to the hill on which it was built, sloping down to the sea. Although the generosity of its fairways makes it seems easy, the rough, which in many cases conceals streams, constitutes a real hazard. It's worth mentioning the water hazards because, apart from the streams, El Paraiso is also dotted with lakes which enhance its natural beauty. One of the most troublesome holes is the 7th a 124 metres par 3, which requires a long shot over a water hazard to reach the green, which is also protected by two bunkers.
26. Atalaya Golf
Address: Ctra. Benahavís, Km. 0,7

Was opened in1993. Facing the mountains behind the complex, this new course has the same characteristics as the Atalaya and, apart from offering good sports facilities, also allows golfers to enjoy the beautiful scenery during their round. The Atalaya Rosner is best suited to the average player. In general, the greens are wide and the tee-offs are fairly taxing. Is a fair and pleasant test for players of all levels.
Coto La Serena
Situated between San Pedro Alcantara and Estepona, Coto La Serena is set in a residencial area, thus following the tendency to incorporate golf courses into building projects. This course, which serves as a garden for the residents of the urbanisation, also offers peace and quiet in its Japanese-style gardens; a perfect place to relax after a round of golf. A small course, Coto La Serena has nine short holes, dissected in places by various streams, adding a touch of freshness to the attractive surroundings. Precision is required when teeing-off so as to gain a good position on the fairways. The club is private but open to visitors, and the tournaments which it frequently hosts gives the place a friendly and competitive athmosphere.
28. Estepona Golf
Only a mile away from Estepona, this golf course was opened in 1991. Its designer, José Luis López Martínez, adapted the layout of the course to the undulating land. Despite being relatively short, the course id full of ups and downs making it hard for players who aren't too keen on walking. The course's rolling landscape together with the designer's interest in preserving its natural contours made it necessary to build short and narrow fairways, which require good technique thus making it suitable for long-hitters. Many palms, eucalyptus and wild olive trees have been planted and there are also water hazards and lot of extremely dangerous rough.
Address: Ctra. N- 340, Km. 150-Urb. El Hacho
The course faces the Mediterranean and North of Africa, on a clear days it's possible to see the rock of Gibraltar and glimpse the African coast. When playing here it's important to always take into account the west wind that dominates the area.

In short, it's a fairly narrow course, with a large number hills and taxing tee-offs. its greens are well-kept all year round and the last nine are exceedingly difficult.

11310 San Roque
This course has been chosen as the venue of the 1997 Ryder cup and various fixtures in Volvo Masters Series. like many others on the Costa del Sol, this magnificent course was designed with the collaboration of Robert Trent Jones, although the 17th bears the unmistakable stamp of Severiano Ballesteros, responsible for remodelling it. Valderrama's fairways have been thought out with care and, apart from the elevated greens, there are also nearly a hundred bunkers throughout the course. Its difficulty can test the nerves of the calmest of players. apart from being the best known, the 489 metre par-five 4th hole is especially beautiful with a waterfall nest to its At the 8th, a par-four, good aim is needed so as to avoid the tees near the green, which is also protected by an enormous bunker. A par-five, the 17th is a serious test for even the best players, while the 2nd is one of the most difficult holes as one must play towards the left so as to be on line with the green.
32. La Canada
Address: Ctra. de Guadiaro, Km. 1
11311 San Roque
