Almenara was designed by Dave Thomas and, in 2001, opened its third nine holes, a spectacular layout built around a series of vast lakes requiring some of the most breathtaking tee shots in Europe. With this third nine Almenara offers the perfect balance between its opening holes, which wind down then up through cork oaks, and the second nine, which start high up before cutting down to the central lakes then rising to the 18th green and the clubhouse - also part of the hotel. Almenara’s hotel, part of the NH chain, is a bungalow-style establishment with a central reception, bar and restaurant area. The golf restaurant is adjacent and has a terrace looking out over the first nine holes and the Sotogrande Estate towards the sea.
