Attraction details
Owner description: Since 1965 Río Real Golf Course is one of most important golf courses in the Costa del Sol. It is located on a gently rolling terrain, the 18 holes and par 72 golf course was designed by Javier Arana, the most brilliant Spaniard golf course architect. Nowadays it is considerated internationally as one of the best golf courses in Andalucía. Río Real lies on a gentle incline which slopes towards the sea, so many of the holes offer magnificent views over the Mediterranean Sea. The golf course, with its exceptional natural surroundings, is not particularly hazardous, despite the fact that the river, to which the hotel owes its name, crosses the golf course four times. Technical details: Par 72 Parkland Tee 61: 6051 m / 6617 y Tee 58: 5833 m / 6379 y Tee 55: 5494 m / 6008 y Tee 51: 5075 m / 5550 y

please get some sand in your bunkers !!
They look like bunkers but many only have a few Mms of sand then clay !!!
I airmailed at least four shots as the club bounced up into the middle of the ball.

We play this course every year and the only criticism ever has been slow play. The course is great and it is kept in very good condition - some really challenging holes. We will be back again next year.

Our fourball has been playing Rio Real for 12 years now. Still an excellent course in great condition, In particular the 7th, 8th and 11th are superb holes. Bit pricey but still worth it for real treat.

I have been all over Europe and played on many courses, and this is up with one of the best. The course is in excellent condition and is obviously maintained at a very high standard which is one of the reasons I've enjoyed the course so much. The greens ran very smoothly and I have no complaints about the condition. As for the view, its perfect, very natural, quiet and very pleasurable. I highly recommend this course for anyone, whether you're a beginner or at any other standard.

Great course which you can play regardless of your ability in that higher handicappers will not score well but should keep most of their balls and enjoy the challenge. Greens were in excellent condition and the course was not too busy. They are doing a bit of maintenance on the course but that only affected one hole. Had a problem with one of the electric trolleys in that it ran out of puff which the clubhouse did not deal with very satisfactorily but that did not ruin our day. Will return and do recommend it as a course worthy of inclusion in a golfing break in the area. Expect to pay €140 for 2 with buggy or trolleys included in peak time.
