Since its purchase by the Taylor Woodrow construction group, heavy investment has been made to improve course conditioning and remove the unfair punishment of slightly miss hit shots.

Golf here is a very pleasant experience, offering wonderful views, well established trees and much appreciated shade while the river intersects the course at various points. The dogleg 10th hole is a pretty par 4 leading to a spectacular 11th tee overlooking a green whose access lies across a ravine.

San Roque New Course

Holes: 18
Par: 72
Length: 6626 m
Design: Perry Dye
2002 saw work begin on the construction of The New Course – a second championship golf course at the Club. The new world class course – 6626 metres from the championship tees – aims to complement The Old Course, while presenting a very different challenge. The designs, by the renowned American course designer Perry Dye, incorporate the contours of the San Roque hills, giving golfers wonderful views to the Guadalquiton River and the Mediterranean Sea beyond. The idea was to create a new course that is a challenge for scratch and low handicap golfers but that is also possible for higher handicap players to enjoy. To that end each hole has five different tee positions and fairways that are wider than those on The Old Course. Nevertheless, these fairways are designed to reward canny tactics and skilful drive placement. Water hazards guard four of the greens, also defended by more than a hundred strategic bunkers, which lie in wait for wayward or ambitious drivers. The plentiful growth of mature cork oaks, San Roque’s excellent weather, soil drainage and irrigation plus the expertise of our experienced team of green-keepers means that the club’s new course – opened in 2003 – is expected to bed in quickly. It will then provide a thrilling alternative to the rigours of The Old Course. 6626 metres par 72

Santa Clara

Holes: 18
Par: 71
Length: 5878 m
Design: Enrique Canales
Opened in July 2001. The course is located only a couple of kilometres east of Marbella. This commercial course with little rough has been well-designed by Enrique Canales in true ‘parkland style’ so that wide fairways alternate with long par 3s and challenging drives over water hazards. A design concept that has large greens, few hills ample trees and with 75% of the course free from any rough. Probably the most difficult hole is the long 8th (par 5 – 506 metres). With the tee-box positioned at the highest level of the course, the narrow fairway of this hole curves all the way downwards. Santa Clara is designed accordance the latest USGA specifications of a parkland course. Besides the huge river which is swirling across the whole course there are plenty of lakes, particularly the lake around the 18th green which is stunning, and an abundance of spectacular elevated greens. With its plush clubhouse frequented by the only entirely female team of caddy masters on the coast it is destined to become one of the best-known of all the Costa del Sol Golf Courses

Santa Maria

Holes: 18
Par: 70
Length: 5613 m
Design: Antonio Garcia Garrido
Located opposite Marbella’s Hotel Don Carlos, Santa Maria’s 18 holes layout of a projected 27 follows the contours of two valleys in which the natural vegetation, streams and four lakes form natural hazards. The first nine holes are shorter but trickier than the back nine, which are flatter and have wide fairways. Players will find several holes particularly memorable: at the 7th the green is surrounded by bunkers and at the 11th there is a lake and a waterfall by the green. Other features of Santa Maria are its magnificent clubhouse, its tennis courts and swimming pool, lawn bowls and, for those wishing extras tuition, the Diego Morito Golf School which has one of the best reputations on the coast.

Length: 6308 m
Design: Cabell B. Robinson
Opened in 2004, set in 138 acres of picturesque parkland on a former avocado plantation between two rivers, Santana is sympathetically laid out by Cabell B. Robinson. The final result is a magnificent course with wide, well-defined fairways on gently sloping terrain, hence it is easily walk able. Water features play an important, albeit not excessive, part in the overall design. Each hole has a variety of tees, wide fairways plus very large and undulating greens protected by bunkers full of crushed marble in order to combat the double-edged sword presented by amateur golfers armed with the latest club technology.
