Adjacent to its new neighbour Santa Clara, Marbella Golf & Country Club is a typical Robert Trent Jones design, with its sweeping fairways, abundant bunkers and large undulating greens. The first few holes require accurate and brave tee shots to get across the ravines and gulleys. Although the next holes are somewhat easier on the nerves, players should beware the fearsome 11th, a sharp dogleg right with hills, valleys and seagulls who occasionally steal your golf balls! From the raised tees at the 12th you can get a magnificent view of the sea.
HOW TO GET THERE
Turn off the highway by the Hospital Costa del Sol about 5 kilometres east of Marbella. If you are going towards Málaga you will have to turn back about 200 metres beyond the golf course at the end of a long straightaway.
