Came hear and played last year. Really a great set up from bar, food and the course. It was in really great condition for this time of year and work on the course tends to be in September. One of the best course you will find locally and reasonably priced.

This is such a pretty course. You can see it as you drive along the main dual carriage way past Marbella. The course is tended extremely well and there is very little "rough". There are however plenty of traps to fall into and the Rio Real itself meanders through the course at various places to give any player that extra... More

Have played here now two years running, and it is my favourite course and location. Being very close to Marbella, and in some places right on the beach, it gives you the feel a feel of playing golf on the beach with the challenges of water and hills.

This is the second time I have played the course , the first time being 5 years ago. I still remains one of the best in the area , condition and layout are excellent . If you are planing a golf trip to the area put it on the list.... Very near the top. Ps .... Relatively flat.

Played here while we where staying in Marbella on holiday. Pretty golf course was easy to find as it is just off the A-7! Very pleasant staff and the course is very well maintained with marshals going around checking passively if everyone is ok. Not the most challenge course off the yellows, however the course is perfect for a holiday... More

Everything at Rio Real works. Great management, nice clubhouse and well maintained course - with some very challenging holes

please get some sand in your bunkers !! They look like bunkers but many only have a few Mms of sand then clay !!! I airmailed at least four shots as the club bounced up into the middle of the ball.

We play this course every year and the only criticism ever has been slow play. The course is great and it is kept in very good condition - some really challenging holes. We will be back again next year.

Our fourball has been playing Rio Real for 12 years now. Still an excellent course in great condition, In particular the 7th, 8th and 11th are superb holes. Bit pricey but still worth it for real treat.
