Owner description: Cabopino Golf is located on the border between Marbella and Mijas Costa, opposite the charming little Cabopino Port. The Course was designed by Mr. Juan Ligués Creus, who’s layout presents spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding pine forest.. The Course with 5.170 metres; and par 71 has three par 3’s, two par 5’s and the rest par 4’s. Amongst the many spectacular holes, the par 4, 3rd hole would be the one to mention. The tee box perched on the side of the cliff presents you with a tee shot that has a drop of nearly 80 metres to the fairway, then you face an elevated green protected by a large bunker. Holes 13 and 15 are also attractive, with streams and lakes.

“excellent golf course:-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

I played Cabopino Sven years ago and was not impressed, on this visit I noticed many improvements and new facilities, I was welcomed by Chris the caddie master, he has been at the club for nine years and told me of the new improvements and club policies, not least of which was the new fleet of buggies that had been purchased.
The course was the same lay out as seven years before, but the condition of the tees, fairways, and greens are all in superb condition, this is probably the best condition of any golf course that I have played abroad during the past three years, and is truely a credit to all of the people like Chris who have been involved.
I heartily recommend playing Cabopino, and in addition to all of my previous report, the cost from 3.30pm with a buggy included was only 55euro, definately a bargain by any standards.
Well done Cabopino golf

Just returned from 5 days in Marbella area, played Cabapino 3 times over 2 days, played twice on the Wed and once on the Fri before flying home. We booked through Golf in Spain and got a good deal for Cabopino and El Chaperral. We were staying at Las Flamingo's and the directions we were given were 1st class and sign posts take you straight to the course. On arrival we were directed to Pro shop and then to Caddy Master who supplied us with a buggy and directions to first tee, The course was in very good nick and we had 3 different kinds off weather each time we played. Wed am when we arrived it had just stopped raining so course was very wet, Wed pm we had sunny spells with strong wind and on Fri we had perfect conditions.Tees could have been better but only a small gripe. Greens were good and only slightly spoiled by the number of unrepaired pitch marks on them. Course lay out is really good with holes that suit every type/handicap golfer, Loved the 3rd 288yd hole with tee approx 150 ft above the green, I had a go at it 3 times and failed on all 3 front bunker once and rough to left of green twice.Par three's all different and Par 5s a good test, water comes into play ona few holes but it only adds to the character of the course, Buggy is a must tried walking on first round and it was pretty hard going.Good challenging course, friendly, helpful staff.

Played here 13th may all our party of eight thought it excellent, course was brilliant fairways tees perfect, the greens are tricky and fast,yes there are bigger more reknowned clubs on this coast,we played 3 off them,El Chapperal,Rio Real, and Santa Clara paid twice as much dosh,but enjoyed them less. We are single figure golfers,and yes its a bit short,but quite tight and requires good management,had a great meal after 11euros anf 30euros for the golf with buggy,this course is a gem.Will be bk next year for sure.
