“Great Golf course and excellent clubhouse”

Ranked #5 of 13 things to do in Sotogrande

Reviewed October 8, 2013

Played a round of golf with my wife and son. He lives within sight of the course!
The course itself is of excellent quality and quite difficult unless you are a competent golfer. A lot of water and plenty of other places to lose your ball. Definitely as good as you could want and a good challenge.

The clubhouse and hotel are top class. We had a meal in the restaurant which is part of the clubhouse and found a good choice and reasonable prices.

Thank Philip M

I had 2 great days here.

I played 18 holes and the course was in super condition. The greens were in great shape.
We all used buggies which helped enormously.
the only downer on the golf was the midges. brutal as you got closer to the water

The hotel was great
my room was really good.
Wi-fi worked and was free - a welcome change
the aircon didnt work - which was a bit annoying

the food was excellent, despite the reviews. great lamb.

Our 8th visit to Almenara was as good as ever. The Greens, Tees and Fairways were in very good condition. The courses offer a great challenge and were fairly quiet, so progress was swift. However what was once a lovely restaurant now serves an evening buffet that was mediocre at best. It seems management have decreed that this offer is best - how wrong they are. We will golf here again, but will eat out! Shame!

Fairways were poor in February. However, it is quite a pretty course, and the speed of the greens gave a good indication of what La reserva and Valderamma would be like

The accommodation was very well presented, very clean and everything provided with friendly staff.

The resort is great, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, Ice bath was 10 Euros per visit but well worth it.
Evening meal top quality buffet 25 Euros including a beer or wine.
Beer 3.50 Euros with free bar crisps/nuts, coffee 2.50 Euros

Almemara golf consists of 3 loops of 9 holes. Alcornoques (Corks) Lagos (Lakes) & Pinos (Pines)
Greens were in good condition fast undulating and true.
Fairways were poor. I would say 50% of the fairways were bare or very little green. The Pinos being the worst.
Bunkers were very poor about 60% had very little sand or none at all.
2 practise putting greens one outside the pro shop very, and the other next to the 1st tee on the Lagos.
The distant between holes & each course is very long and hilly.
The chipping area with 3 practise holes was at the driving range which was off the complex about ¼ miles away.

Alcornoques is very hilly course with very undulating fairways and greens. Some holes guarded by water at the side. The 5th par 3 is only 127 yard but drop down 70 feet to a thin green.

Lagos like the name suggests has a lot of holes guarded by water with very undulating fairways and greens. The 7th par 3 is 180 yards, but you have to carry 150 yards over water.

Pinos is a mature pine course. With undulating fairways, tight holes with O/B’s, doglegs and undulating greens.

I found all 3 courses very testing (20HC) because of the design and undulating fairways and greens. If you get 30 stableford your playing well.

Trolley 7 Euros, Buggy 28 Euros, 18 holes should be 65 Euros around.

At £290 for 4 days bed breakfast, 3 rounds of golf, fights & transfer it’s a good deal

Thanks very much for your review.
We have been changing the kind of grass in the fairways around that period, thats why you saw the fairways with no enough density. As a golfer you are we know you understand we have to undertake this works in The course.

We hope to see you soon in our club, it is always a big pleasure to have high level clients like you.

Best regards
