A nice course that circles round a development of apartments. Particularly good in wet weather as it dries out very quickly.

This lovely little 9-hole course is a challenge for anyone over 15 hcp. The course we played in march was in very good condition and well maintained. Of course everything is simple, no range, no restaurant, but the prices are very very reasonable compared to other courses. I have played here many times and I always pay for a monthly membership which lowers the price even more. Early bird or twilight prices are very good.

Perfect for 9, 18 or all day golf. The scenery is wonderful, the course is both challenging while forgiving. While still a novice I have played with low handicap colleagues who also have enjoyed this course.

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
