Characteristics

Valderrama private club its first time European continent 1997 “Ryder cup” scenarios. Its flat ground beautiful and well care fairways surround by semi rough grass makes the bool deep in cotton. Thousands of cork trees with the mission of difficulty players over play, are a challenge. All handicap levels will take they own risk.

Here are two reviews:

It is a really great place! Whether the green fee is prohibited or not it is always a great experience in a golf experience. Those who still have some money left should look to hire a caddy for 60 €. Not because he carries the bag, but because the guys really have a clue and can give good tips. Otherwise I would have totally gone down with my HCP of 23.

Valderrama Golf Club

We played on New Year’s Day in Valderrama – an absolute dream of golf course. With its old trees the place is beautifully integrated into the landscape. Nothing is superfluous or artificial without flashy spectacular installations facilities but tastefully designs. An engagement radiating inertia, the space can easily be underestimated. As long as players stay in the fairways everything is fine and the greens can be attacked. But woe to the man who kills his ball between the many cork, oaks and others tree variety trying to find the green. These are also defended by several bunkers, which can be however play very fair and having fun on a risk. The greens are undulating fast and interesting. All in all rather prefer tactical play. And anyway the place is (starting with the Range) maintained outstanding.

For me, it is a character place, contrasting to other park-like squares and a meditative way the player abfordert respect.

Characteristics

This place was inaugurated in 1925 as the first on the Costa del Sol – and personally by the royal family. Plenty of variety provides this directly located by the sea Golf Course despite the consistently flat landscape. The Park and partially lagoon also exerts a special charm aye vision.

It is a 27-hole course, the Length for men 6065 meters and 5295 meters for women.

A driving range is also available.

Here are two reviews:

Very nice but simply place without any major claims. It is Very suitable for beginners with high handicap. Little water or bunker obstacles. There is an 18 hole Old Course and a 9-hole links course. We enjoyed the Old Course liked (Hcp Hcp 16.8 and 37). Prices wore good 118 euros for two people in December. We would play it again, taking off and landing planes did not bother us directly over the place.

I have played the 2 combine course in January 2010. I flew to Malaga on Saturday morning, stayed overnight at the hotel and after a game on Sunday flown back to Germany. Since the Golf complex is located directly at the airport, such a short trip offers. The hotel is very o.k. The disadvantage of the airport is of course the direct aircraft noise through the day constantly taking off or landing aircraft. The place is not very spectacular, and is mainly played by local members and guests of the Parador hotel. The space is very open, but has some water hazards, which one should better avoid it. The green fee was 28, – € for hotel guests very cheap and perfectly adequate. The place was very crowded on weekends from sunrise, it has become more of a game in the afternoon hours. Secretarial staff and the members were all very friendly. The place was from the maintenance state does not necessarily first choice, but it was still OK. The “normal” tee off mark for men were all locked and reseeded, therefore, only by the ladies tee off area was possible. The complex consists of 27 holes. 18 holes include the main golf tour and then there is a 9 hole Par 35 course (links course). This rather small space offers itself as an alternative when the main course is full. Some tracks of the 9-hole course run paralleled along the sea. The lanes are only separated by a fence from the beach. There is a two-storey driving range, which is, however, very small and right next to a road lies (with drift fences). In the course it has been settled a large parrot’s colony that accompany some tracks often loudly. I thought that was quite nice as Central Europeans.

The private and exclusive golf club was designed by Cabell B. Robinson. It is located in two valleys that converge in Y-shape. The place is spacious and with over 6,700 m also very long, but he looks very harmonious and perfectly into the surrounding landscape it integrated. Bunkers are further out, water hazards, there are at 6 holes.

Was at least among the top 100 of Europe’s best golf courses. Not without reason!

  Here is a review:

Very good service, nice clubhouse terrace, good practice facilities. The place itself is comfortable to play, just to recommend the first holes sometimes narrow and thus not suitable for high handicappers. Questionable whether the requested price the thing like good places is value offered much cheaper especially in the area. But no hassle and long intervals between tee times. We have seen on the round before or behind someone.
