Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“A challenge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Lovely course with many challenges.
Course in good condition despite the recent fires.
Not cheap but well worth a visit as staff friendly and helpful. Far less snooty than the Santa Clara neighbours!!!

From the first tee to the sea bass on the plate,this is Spanish golf at its very best. An annual visit for me and this year it was the one to top them all. Excellent value for money.

“Good set up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Very enjoyable course to play with reachable par 5's and a couple of short par 4's. Very scenic and not too tight. Some parts of some greens were a bit patchy but didn't impact our enjoyment. Wonderful clubhouse with excellent service in the bar/terrace area.
Would look forward to playing there again.

“Play here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

Not overly long course, but makes up for it with elevation changes, narrow fairways and blind shots. Challenging and in good shape. Don't miss lunch at the clubhouse patio overlooking 9 and 18 green. Staff here most friendly. I was matched up with three members who made me feel like a member too. Thank you!

Good greens. Fairways in good condition. We used Elite Golf Serices to make our booking. I would add it to the list of Costa courses I would like to play again.
