We played the course recently along with a number of others in the area. As ever, we thoroughly enjoyed the course but we had to leave some feedback as to what made the difference.

We really hope the Management/owners appreciate what an asset they have in Miguel.

He arrived early and was helpful, friendly and caring even at 07.00am in the pitch black.

He was engaging, fun and caring.

He bumped into on the course and took time to ensure we where enjoying our round.

Having booked to play both morning and afternoon we encountered a problem with not enough buggies available in the afternoon due to it being busy.

Miguel, couldn’t do enough for us and instead of hiding, like most would do, he kept us updated and kept apologising for the delay.

You could see he was passionate about his course and wanted everyone to have a wonderful experience.

Thank you Miguel

No problems at arrival, except the feeling that we were in the way of the Caddiemaster and proshop, as they were about to start a competition day at the course.
Of we go....with the slowest buggy on the planet !
Course is good, lot of uphill and downhill holes.
At 17th the buggy ran out of battery, and we had to walk 17 and 18 with all our gear ..2 uphill holes.

When facing the young guy in the proshop/caddiemaster, and telling him that we had a buggyproblem....he just didnt care.
Actually he ment that we were the fools not calling in for help.
No apologises for lack of charge, no apologises for slow buggy...total lack of customer service.

Good course, but bad service !

The golf course was nice and greens ok. Playing in this region every year or so would be in my top ten.
The area of improvement is in customer service from the staff. The first incident was the golf cart ran out of power on the 18th. My golf partner used his to push me up to the caddie shop. We told the chap all we got was a shrug of shoulders. No apology or anything.
Second one was after a drink we asked for the bill as we needed to get back. After 20 minutes of reminders and waiters walking by we got up to leave as it appeared the waiters were deliberately not bringing it out. Then magically the bill arrived. Sorry just not good enough.

Great clubhouse, new gym. However, I came to learn how to play golf. The driving range is too narrow.I was not allowed to use any woods to practice my swing.the course layout makes it impossible to pin down a landing spot for a golf ball that flies beyond 400 feet.I don't recommend this place.

we played the golf course a few days ago and very much enjoyed the experience, we were greated at the golf desk by two gentlemen who were both helpful, as it was our first time they gave us some quick tips and off we went. the course was in great condition and even though we found it extremely hot we had a great day. it is not the easiest course but would say it is well worth a try.

Look forward to coming back soon!

This is a shotmakers course. The course is in excellent condition and I recommend you take a buggy. Some fairways are tight but fair. The par 5 eight hole is a treat. Would love to play it a second time now that I understand the hole layout. The tee times are well spaced and you do not feel rushed. The starter was excellent and gave valuable information.
We will definately come back for a repeat play.

Good staff, but the golf course pulls only "satisfactorily."
Negative was the impression of the Driving Range.
Perhaps this is the worst part of the golf club: a narrow rounded corridor, covered with high nets on both sides.
Balls during training can fly over the net to the first hole. Golf course.
When hit in the bunker, the ball buries in the sand and is difficult to knock out.
The condition of the launching sites leaves much to be desired.
Some fairways are in very poor condition.
Golfers should be aware of this.

Having paid high prices (€151 for 2 players )for a course that was one of the worst kept courses I ve played in Spain I was bitterly dissapointed. The fairways were more like a farmers field and the front 9 holes greens were just shocking. Every drive we hit it nearly plugged in fairways and had to be moved, the bunkers need some TLC to say the least. The slow play is easily the worst I've experienced with it more being suited to a works day outing/ coffee morning rather than people wanting to play golf. The Marshall made no difference as he just cruised past in his buggy waving at people he obviously knew.
We actually got to the 10th tee and seen 6 buggies sitting waiting to tee off and we decided we'd had enough and came in.
Great design on the course and looks great from a far but not on nearer inspection.
Poor from start to finish and not even getting the full round in and paying more than we'd payed for any other course in the area left us with a bad taste in our mouth. We won't return and will advise our golf friends To do the same.

The people who work here are absolutely lovely, the food is good but sadly the course is awful. Four of us played ( 8,13 and 18 handicappers) and we lost so many balls it was ludicrous. Good shots are punished by the runs off of the fairways which are very tight to say the least, a bad bounce and your ball is gone. The tee's look like a patch of farm land and the greens are pitch marked a lot. To be fair it opens up on the back nine but this is not an enjoyable course to play.

Firstly, the course is tough (designed for low handicap golfers). The majority of the fairways are very tight (especially in the front 9) and the penalty for missing the fairway with your tee shot is generally a lost ball.
Secondly, the course should be in better condition. The greens are good but the tee boxes are a mess. On the day we played they looked unkempt and untidy with grass too long (maybe we played it on a bad day when it hadn't been worked on by the green staff?) and unfortunately a number of the tees are not flat (they need to be dug out an relaid).
Green fees at 230 euros for a four ball (or 57.50 each player) is not cheap so expected much better standard for our money. We have played many courses in the Marbella area (Rio Real, Santa Maria, Santa Clara, Atalaya, etc) and the are all much better than this course.
The clubhouse is nice and the staff are friendly and helpful but if you are looking for a really nice golf course to play on your Marbella holiday then there are much better value options than this I'm afraid.
