The course always provides a great test of golf with excellent facilities and club house. I love the 4th hole that ends up on the beach with the Med in touching distance. Highly... read more

A beautiful course - We played here on the 22nd May. We were a 4 ball with buggies sent out behind 2 4 balls with trolleys, so as you can image this was not a quick round. For whatever reason the trolley golfers did not continue onto the 10th so we were in a position to move a little quicker,... More

Not to.difficult. pretty flat and holes are very playable. Bunkers were not good. Greens were not the best. Depending on what price you paid, reasonable value for the Costa Del Golf.

We play and review all 40 golf courses on the Costa del Sol (between Gibraltar and Malaga). The Rio Real golf club is 45 years old, large, with attached hotel and golf tutoring. Rio Real is basically a parkland golf course, although not completely flat. Half the holes have moderate slope. A few holes only have elevation tee-to-green of more... More

Having played Rio Real on many occasions this is always the first course we go to book and look forward to playing when coming to Spain. As always we were not disappointed. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and the best club sandwich! Greens were in excellent condition, good variety of holes and always challenging. Looking forward to... More

Having played many courses over my 50 years of golfing life, this is a wonderful complex. Course well manicured and Greens are in good condition. Hotel room, exceptionally large, and of top quality. Food excellent, staff and service excellent. Nothing is to much trouble. Plenty of buggies available. Will spend more time here on my next visit and would highly... More

Layout of the course is great, some good fun holes. Condition of the greens and fairways was much better than expected having read previous reviews. Definitely recommend a visit.

Have played here several times over the past 15 yrs. Always a favourite. Disappointed with the staff attitude. They wanted to change our tee time for 8 of us back 2 hours. Sent us off the 10th as a compromise. Then came out to make us let a 2 ball through even though they couldn't keep up with us. Then... More
