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

Got a chance to play Valderrama in August 2012 as a single while on vacation in Spain. Arrived much earlier than expected and was allowed to use the driving range and chipping area for over an hour. When asked if I wanted to play with a member, I declined and decided to play as a single. It was not busy... More

One of the best if not the best in continental Europe. Expensive but worth it, the dream of any golfer, you must do it once in your golfing life! It is also the best restaurant in Sotogrande opened to none members for diner, end of the week, and a special buffet lunch on sunday; not to be missed. All in... More

It's obviously a great field where you feel the "weight" of playing in a field that hosted the Ryder Cup It is difficult, challenging, particularly due to the many oak trees, sometimes at stake. The price is too high (just understand the high price for the title field of the Ryder Cup, the access restrictions and market rules).
