Santa Clara is a Par 71 measuring 5940m, and is located in Marbella, 40 minutes from Malaga Airport. It offers a beautiful setting featuring panoramic views of the Mediterranean and surrounding mountains and it has been designed to keep the fantastic landscape as natural as possible. It has wide fairways and there isn’t a great deal of rough, but the Par 3s are very long and there are several challenging tee shots across water hazards. With strategically placed bunkers and tough undulating greens this is a testing course that you will want to come back and play again.

Marbella Golf & Country Club is a Par 72 measuring 5953m, and is located in Marbella, 40 minutes from Malaga Airport. This Robert Trent Jones designed golf course provides a testing and enjoyable round as it meanders through olive groves and hills, with the Mediterranean backdrop.

El Chaparral is a Par 72 measuring 5649m. It is located between Fuengirola and Marbella and since it re-opened it has become one of the most attractive golf clubs on the Costa del Sol. It has 6 par 3s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 5s and the layout will offer a challenge to any level of golfer. Every hole is different and you will love the scenery around the course, it is tree lined and climbs its way through the hills and back down into the valleys demanding the use of almost all the clubs in the bag. The quality of the greens is largely due to the expert care of agronomist Manuel Pantoja, who has not only redesigned a number of the holes but is also responsible for their constant upkeep.
Cabopino Golf Club is a Par 71 measuring 5170m. It is perched above the delightful Costa Del Sol shoreline, and situated just off the coast road between Marbella and Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol. It boasts wonderful views of the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. Although it is a fairly short course, it is still a good challenge of golf. The driver is only needed on a few holes, but the second shot to the green is the important one here. The par 4 third hole is an interesting one, it is only 288m, but the tee is on the top of the mountain with the green way down in the distance, the big hitters can reach but choosing the right club may be difficult. Some of the fairways are a bit tight and there are a lot of blind/dogleg holes, but this is a course that everyone seems to enjoy.

The signature hole is the Par 5 6th, which has a dogleg, water to the right of the fairway and finishes with a two tiered green. Both the 9th and the 18th provide stern tests if you want to finish with a par.
