Marbella Golf Country Club is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just five minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Marbella. It is considered one of the best and most challenging golf courses in Spain.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior in the late 80's and occupying one of the largest remaining green areas on the Costa del Sol, the 6.000 meter long 18-hole links course with a par of 72, has been imaginatively designed to respect the natural terrain and make the most of the spectacular Mediterranean backdrop. Each hole is uniquely challenging.

There are numerous cleverly placed bunkers and lakes which will have to be successfully negotiated if you are to achieve a decent score. The course blends in perfectly with the lush natural surroundings which include rolling green hills and olive trees, and is a joy to play it for a perfect Spain golf holidays.

This course was a challenge in every way, the fairways and greens were in good order. The only down side to all of this is that the fairways were on gradients so unless you can take a cart on them it is hard for aging legs. Very few greens had access by steps and on wet ground it became very... More

Mike M, General Manager at Marbella Golf & Country Club, responded to this review

Dear Lenmo, I must apologize for the inconvenience of buggy paths only after the heavy rains last Friday and Saturday. Our normal buggy policy is 90 degrees on the fairways which would have been much easier on everyone's legs (including mine). Please do come back and give us another try. Kind Regards, Mike More

Played this course in late March. The course was in fantastic condition and many of the holes were spectacular! We had great hospitality from the General Manager Mike, who ensured we were kept refreshed with beer, plus bringing out freshly made beef bocadillos which were amazing. Would love to play it again sometime.

Really challenging 18 hole course with some interesting holes. It's tight and punishes any stray drives. Views are excellent and course well maintained. Indeed money being spent on improvements. Sandwiches and drinks made too order as you get close to the 9th hole and delivered to you a few holes later. Nice clubhouse. Recommended.
