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.

We played here as a group (16). I found the course to be in average condition and certainly the outside patio area was fairly ordinary. However the bar staff were excellent and good fun. They looked after us all very well. The place just seemed a bit tired overall. I wouldn`t rush back.

Fantastic clubhouse lulls you into a false sense of security before you are let out on the couse. Beautiful serene building with top class facilities, run by a really friendly team. Then there is the golf course. Plays like two completely different 9 holers. The front 9 winds its way up into the campo, wild and rugged with some demanding... More

Dear Maria, Thank you very much for your excellent, and very accurate, review of our facilities and course.

Course is brilliant as you really have to plug your way round really enjoyed playing here. Only downfall was the life members in front who the course Marshall was going to tell to speed up only to be told not to as they were life members. 3hours for a front nine holes anywhere is very disappointing and they had lost...

Dear Lee, I apologize for the inconvenience of a slow playing group in front of you that day. Life members do carry a little more weight as they have been members for around 30 years but not to the level that you are writing about. The marshal should have asked them to move faster regardless of their stature. I hope... More

Our final round of our golf tour to the area was at the Marbella Golf and Country Club. The clubhouse was fantastic and got you in the mood for a spectacular game of golf. The first few holes were tight, and you would benefit from having played the course before as distances critical, particularly on the 2nd and 4th. There... More

A short but tricky course, especially the first 9. The finish is OK but not what you expect when you pay a greenfee of 90 EUR. However, the club house is impressive. I will not play here again. + the club house - the finish of the course - to expensive

I played on 17th May with a visiting Golf Society. Club staff and marshals were excellent, course in excellent condition. Unfortunately, our day out was spoilt by a four ball of members behind us, who were extremely rude and bad mannered. They were contradicting the marshall's instructions, and failing to follow basic golf etiquette. It's a shame to spoil the... More

Had to play this course a second time to really appreciate as the first attempt was hampered by poor weather. Superb facilities including, practice area, club house and well stocked golf shop. This course has a wide range of interesting holes to suit all. Highly recommended
