I just played 9 for reasons of time.
Enjoyable and challenging.
Good landscape.
You can consider this field as a mountain course.

Six fellas on a five night trip had a fabulous holiday. The accomodation was first class, the golf courses were very challenging but a real pleasure to play, unforgiving at times but very enjoyable. The accomodation was very well presented, very clean and everything provided. The SPA, free to guests, was also great to use. The grounds around the hotel are exceptionally clean and tidy.
The breakfast could not be faulted for choice and the evening buffet, negociated at 25 euros per head, was also very good value for money. Staff did not hurry or rush us and for the money, you could eat all night. There is nothing we could really fault with either the venue, service or area.

Have used this course off and on over quite a few years and love it. It is situated quite high up in Sotogrande Alta and you reach it by following signs for Valderamma (Ryder Cup course) and go past that (very expensive to play on! So unless you are a top golfer you will probasbly give it a miss!) and carry on working your way up the hills to the Almenara hotel where you will find a car park for the golf and the caddymaster and a nice bar and restaurant called venteocho. There are three nine hole courses that they use in pairs generally so you can effectively potentially try out three different 18 hole combinations!However one might be closed at any one time depending on season, repairwork etc. All are situated around the Almenara Hotel and many holes have splendid views over the local mountains and the sea. High handicap golfers (like me) beware though many of the fairways slope sharply from right to left or left to right and positioning your ball on the centre of the fairways can prove challenging to say the least and if the local Levante or Sirocco winds are blowing this just adds to challenge as the courses are very exposed. The three course wander either through very natural pine and cork forests or past lakes and reservoirs so there is plenty of wonderful landscape and plenty of water features to attract your ball! The courses are generally very hilly so a buggy is pretty well essential.

nicely maintained course. very overpriced however considering the deals out there at the minute. Restaurant has poor service and very overpriced which is a shame as the view is superb.

Choice of three nine hole courses, bargains prices after 2pm, great practice area. Superb views of the surrounding areas, challenging in some areas, but forgiving and good fun with space to give it large on ocassions!
