Owner description: El Higueral Golf is a picturesque golf course. Although only 9 holes are open at this stage, the course is nestled on the gentle slopes of the foothills in Benahavis, right next to Marbella.Designed to maximize your enjoyment of each round, unique features and vistas, El Higueral Golf will surprise at every turn. Beautifully manicured greens & elegantly styled lakes ensure an experience so memorable you’ll want to play here time and again.This is without a doubt one of the most recomendable courses in Costa del Sol.

My son and I always play this course, it is his favourite on the Costa del Sol and we have played nearly everyone. The price was 43€ each for as many holes as you want to play. We played the first 9 off the yellows and the second time round of the whites......there is a big difference so it feels like 18 separate holes. The course was in excellent condition , the greens are better than some of the more famous courses in the area and I include Valderama , very over rated. The par 5 fourth is a great visual hole with a tricky green that slopes from front to back, where there is a lake waiting for your ball.
To score well you need your A game , there is a lot of water and if the wind is up playing to your handicap is tough. We walked , but there are buggies and trolleys and our last visit we did 54 holes......now that is value for money, talking of money junior has yet to pay up, he lost 3 and 2 pretty close for all those holes played.
One last thing , there is a pros shop but no club house, coffee , drinks and bar snacks were available.

Generous fairways and good bit of water. Exposed course on hot days. You dont have to be a low handicap for this course. No real club house and very limited facilities

Hidden behind Guadalmina in the foothills of Benahavis lies this pretty golf course pleasing to the golfers eye and in wonderful condition all year round. It gives novice golfers a fair chance and a there is a test for the lower handicap golfer.. It has 9 holes at present which may we be extended to 18. Starting with a short but pretty challenging par m it has 2 beautiful par 5 's and has some super par 4's. Always a joy to play and at such a value for money rate... It is a walking course but buggies are available. A must play!!

Great course, 9 holes, which you go around twice. This course is a challenge and you get a chance to correct your errors on the second 9. The cost is the same all year around making it a great bargain, it drains well so it is available when other courses are closed. Men if you go off the yellows first 9 and then whites second nine it is a very different course!!
