Played two rounds in November. Impeccable golf course. First round was memorable because I really wanted to play that golf track at least once in my life. As a big bonus I played it twice and found it a little easier than the first day.

It was a dream of mine to play this course and I was hoping that I would not be disappointed. It was a truly fantastic experience and it definitely lived up to its reputation. Service is superb and the golf amazing. The starters make sure no one goes off too quick so there is generally no waiting on the course.... More

Never crowded. Just golf, no fuss. Beautiful scenery and holes that are non of them alike. Perfect upkeep and perfect clubhouse. Wonderful personnel.

Played as a guest so fee affordable this time . There had been strong winds 3 or 4 days prior and it was continuing so leaves and twigs and nuts had all fallen off the many cork oaks that line the course. Made it very tricky. Despite this still loved the experience of playing this course. Best time to play... More

If you are a golfing nut then you will play this course regardless of price and so you should. However it is vastly overpriced , living off past reputation and has lost its status as a course on the European Tour. When we played it was in so so condition , it had been windy and the cork trees had... More

Returned after playing first nearly 10 years ago and it was as good as I remembered. Very friendly staff, clubs cleaned after the round and carried back to the car. The drinks cart appeared virtually every other hole with free water and bananas, little touches such as that make the difference. If you play golf, a must do for your... More

Played Valderrama for business in September 2013. It was expensive, but for a course of this caliber and having hosted many pro tourneys along with a Ryder Cup, it was worth it. Fantastic conditioning, very friendly people, great caddies - an awesome day all around.

Best golf course in Europe continental. A great experience which any golfer must do at least once, but even better the second time or third time. It is expensive but worth every Euro! Lunch on sunday is also a must, or diner in the member dining room.

You just HAVE to do it, ONCE!! After experiencing La Reaserva (very close by), I wasn't so impressed with V. Sure, it's a beautifully maintained course, but what a cost. The highlight of my visit there was Sunday lunch in the members' dining room. Absolutely top class
