El Paraiso Golf Club

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Designed in 1973 by Gary Player, El Paraiso is one of the most established courses on the Costa del Sol. Set out in the peaceful El Paraiso valley with the backdrop of the majestic 'La Concha' mountain to the north and the sparkling Mediterranean to the south, El Paraiso has the envious reputation of not only providing one of the best championship course layouts on the coast, which draws players back time and time again, but also being the friendliest international club too. New members, golf societies and visitors are welcome.

I have been playing at the El Paraiso fo over 35 years,and what a great club it is.My dear brother in law who was a founder member and past away some years ago was given the great honour to be laid to rest on his beloved course on the 5th fairway a few yards from the green.So if you are going up the 5th say a hi to Laure.He was a big man with a big heart.

A good course in great condition and very manageable to get around either on foot or with buggy.
Lovely sun terrace for a drink afterwards

Played this course on Sunday 6th October with five pals, having played the appalling Estepona Golf course some days earlier. Course in great condition, would suit any golf handicap, as course is relatively new, so trees are small and you don't get punished unduly. Staff very friendly, would definitely return. Highly recommended.

We played El Paraiso twice and enjoyed it far more than the other courses we tried on the Costa. This Gary Player designed course is one of the few in the region where a buggy is not required, and the charge for a trolley is very modest. There are no shortage of challenges - sand, water and some very tricky greens - and I think it offers something to golfers of all levels. The staff were very welcoming and in my experience seemed happy to offer a tempting deal if you took the trouble to ask them. Good English is spoken in the clubhouse and shop, so things are very easy and leaves you with only your golf to worry about! Recommended.
