PARADOR de MÁLAGA GOLF (Málaga)
Years of history have made this course—the oldest in Andalusia—both challenging for experienced players and achievable for any golf enthusiast. Sand dunes, palms, mimosas, eucalyptus and pines skirt the course. Two of the holes run along the edge of the sea. Course facilities include:
-18-hole historic course (1925)
-9-hole links course (no handicap required)
-9-hole pitch & putt (no handicap required)
The course’s origins date back to the 1920s and are linked to the British royal family, especially Princess Beatrice of Battenberg, who spent part of the year in the area and was a driving force behind its creation. In 1925, construction began on the original 9 hole course under the technical supervision of Harry Shapland
Colt (builder of Wentworth). Under the direction and design of renowned British architect Tom Simpson (creator of such famous courses as Turnberry, Muirfield and Ballybunion), it was expanded to 18 holes (6173 m, par 72).
Accommodation available in the same place.

Real Club de Golf Las Brisas
For its design he chose the American, Robert Trent Jones Senior, who was already considered one of the best golf course designers in the world. He had just finished building the golf course at Sotogrande and after Las Brisas, went on to design Los Naranjos and Club de las Aves, afterwards named Valderrama. The course includes numerous water obstacles; there are ten artificial lakes fed by two streams. The greens, the majority of which are raised, are amply protected by bunkers.
The results of Robert Trent Jones’s efforts, which we continue to enjoy today, were truly notable and original, creating a difficult and attractive course. He was also original in his choice of Bermuda grass for the fairways and Pencross Bent on the greens unusual species in the Europe of the sixties.
The outcome of all this is a round which requires a precise game of golf. As an example of the opinion of great golfers we can quote Paul Azinger (USA), “There is not a single bad hole in Las Brisas. Indeed it is one of the finest courses on which I have been able to play”.The original design, the Englishman Gerald Huggan was commissioned by D. José Banús to design the landscaping and the course’s arboretum. Gerald Huggan, a great specialist in subtropical plants, had just returned from Kenya where he had designed the Nairobi gardens. Here at Las Brisas we can enjoy his work and imagination, in a place where there are trees representing all the continents of the world: species from Africa like the Cape Chestnut and the Spiny Acacias; the Indian Laurel and the Mysore Ficus from Asia; Chorisia Speciosa from America; the Green Ash from Mexico; and the Blackwood and the Whistling Pine from Australia, together with numerous species of palms and Mediterranean trees which coexist in great harmony, turning our course into a veritable botanic garden.Mail to us
Los Naranjos Golf Club
Los Naranjos belongs to a select group of golf courses on the Costa del Sol, designed by world famous golf arquitect Robert Trent Jones and was built at a time when suitable land was still available. The course quickly caught world fame thanks to its championship layout and design, during the hosting of the World Cup, Spanish Open and other important competitions.
In the mid 70s the second group of Robert Trent Jones courses were built on the Coast, Mijas, Valderrama and Los Naranjos. Mr Jones was comissioned by the Banus company, developers of Nueva Andalucía and the Las Brisas golf course, to design and build a second golf course on the estate, just north of Las Brisas. The site could not be better, 70 hectares of perfect golfing land with subtle undulations, a river running through and a orange groove from wich the course got its name. The instructions were clear, Banus wanted a true championship course of classic design, long with wide fairways and large greens, suitable for international championships but enjoyable for all levels of players, and Mr Jones delivered exactly that.
When the course opened in 1977, it was opened together with Las Brisas. The first tee was the present 3´d hole, beeing the nearest hole to Las Brisas. The 18´th was the present 2´nd hole and the Club House what is now a private villa by the 2´nd green.

Club de Golf Valderrama (Sotogrande, Cádiz)
The Real Club Valderrama (Spanish: Real Club Valderrama) is one of the best known golf clubs in Europe. It is located in the resort of Sotogrande, San Roque in the Andalusia region of southern Spain, a few miles from Gibraltar, and has a single 18-hole course, along with a 9-hole par 3 course.
Valderrama was constructed in 1974 as “Sotogrande New,” to the designs of leading American golf course architect Robert Trent Jones. Renamed “Las Aves” in 1981, it was acquired by Jaime Ortiz-Patiño in 1984. The golf course was redesigned and expanded by the original architect and became “Valderrama.”
By 1999, Valderrama was rated the top course in mainland Europe by Golf World magazine. The practice ground was called the best in Europe by Nick Faldo.
The fourth hole, La Cascada, is the course’s signature hole. It is a par 5 with a pond to the right of the two-tiered green. Before the 2016 Open de España, three national teams of four players tried to complete La Cascada in the fastest time. The French team of Raphaël Jacquelin, Alexander Lévy, Grégory Havret and Romain Wattel took four shots to complete the hole in 34.87 seconds, breaking the previous Guinness world record by half.
The club’s course was the traditional host of the now defunct Volvo Masters, hosting the event from 1988 to 2008, with a five-year break when the event was moved to the Montecastillo Golf Club.
