You just HAVE to do it, ONCE!! After experiencing La Reaserva (very close by), I wasn't so impressed with V. Sure, it's a beautifully maintained course, but what a cost. The highlight of my visit there was Sunday lunch in the members' dining room. Absolutely top class

Got a chance to play Valderrama in August 2012 as a single while on vacation in Spain. Arrived much earlier than expected and was allowed to use the driving range and chipping area for over an hour. When asked if I wanted to play with a member, I declined and decided to play as a single. It was not busy and after the first hole, I actually was able to play a couple of balls on each hole (probably against the club rules). Everyone was extremely nice and welcoming. The caddy master was very helpful and told me about the history of the club and the touring pros who play there. The front nine was just awesome to play, especially number 4 with it's signature water fall. The back nine was slow with a foursome ahead of me who were high handicappers, but I did not mind the wait at all, just more time to soak it all in. The cart girl delivered wet towels to wipe away the sweat (very cool perk). Overall, a great course. Yes it is expensive, but if you can make it happen, give it a try because you will always remember your day at Valderrama

One of the best if not the best in continental Europe. Expensive but worth it, the dream of any golfer, you must do it once in your golfing life!
It is also the best restaurant in Sotogrande opened to none members for diner, end of the week, and a special buffet lunch on sunday; not to be missed.
All in all a must!

It's obviously a great field where you feel the "weight" of playing in a field that hosted the Ryder Cup
It is difficult, challenging, particularly due to the many oak trees, sometimes at stake.
The price is too high (just understand the high price for the title field of the Ryder Cup, the access restrictions and market rules).

Exceptional course, perfect fairways, tough to get to greens, fantastic scenery. The day we went it rained for about 5 holes, and as a result we had the course practically to ourselves. We took our time playing and enjoyed every minute of it. Tough course, but filled with history. Enjoy
