Owner description: Marbella Golf Country Club is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just five minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Marbella. It is considered one of the best and most challenging golf courses in Spain. Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior in the late 80's and occupying one of the largest remaining green areas on the Costa del Sol, the 6.000 meter long 18-hole links course with a par of 72, has been imaginatively designed to respect the natural terrain and make the most of the spectacular Mediterranean backdrop. Each hole is uniquely challenging. There are numerous cleverly placed bunkers and lakes which will have to be successfully negotiated if you are to achieve a decent score. The course blends in perfectly with the lush natural surroundings which include rolling green hills and olive trees, and is a joy to play it for a perfect Spain golf holidays.

I can honestly say every time I have played Marbella it has been top class. The course is one of my favourites on the coast. It is not long but takes a lot of thinking and will challenge you every time you play it. I would say it is a must play course. All the staff are very friendly and... More

Similar to other reviews, the two nines are a contrast but accuracy off the tee is demanded. Have played the course a couple of times and it is up there as one of my favourite courses in the region. Played last weekend when the captains day was on and there was a great atmosphere around the course. Playing the 9th... More

What a great place. To play golf and then eat afterwards. Very well run and maintained course. Not easy and so interesting to play. Then afterwards the food in the clubhouse is fabulous and the staff are very welcoming. A great day out!

I have played this course a couple of times now and it still remains as my favorite in the Marbella region. Two very contrasting 9's that others have attested to. Front 9 in the hills, twisting and turning through the valleys, have to be accurate with your shots whilst enjoying beautiful views down over Marbella out to sea. The back... More

The front nine really tight but also a fair challenge, would keep the driver in the bag next time! Back 9 is more open but watch for the elevated greens which play about 1/2 to 1 club more Lovely clubhouse,food and staff Will definitely return Only reason for 4rating is the wild boar damage on the front nine which is...

Just returned from golf in this area (two male and two female golfers), and picked this course as I had had a few recommendations - was the most expensive of the ones we played. I would say that it was an interesting if not quirky course, with the condition of the course being not much better than my local council... More

The golf is a challenge and very much a story of 2 very different 9's!! The front nine is spectacular, laid through the hills at the back of the club house with a number of visually stunning holes - if you are no accurate off the tee your goosed. The back 9 in contracts is more parkland in nature but... More

When you first see the club house as you drive up the road leading to the course it is an awesome sight. Once you walk into the club house itself it is even more awesome that builds the excitement of actually playing the course itself. Don't think you are in for an easy day though because the course itself has... More

Visited this golf course three times during my most recent two week vacation - which ended yesterday - and I felt I had to add my review to this site. The club house is large and comfortable, the staff helpful and friendly and their service is very good, and the view from the terrace overlooking the 10th and 18th holes... More

Front nine review only as we left at turn due to poor overall condition of fairways and greens, lack of water on course, no drink buggy making the rounds, no pace of play Marshall, poor signage leading to many wrong turns, no bathroom facility on front nine. In addition, with many blind shots, unless the golfes behind your group are... More
