Top hint for this course

On the 2nd, a long drive is needed to cover the distance. For the second shot, take an extra club to hit the dancefloor, the distance is deceiving.

Full Course Lowdown

This course is a classic. If you're visiting Costa del Sol, you can't miss out on its clean fairways and rich history. Gary Player designed one hell of a championship course, and it tests all aspects of the game.

From the strategically placed bunkers to large water hazards, the squad will need to navigate the fairways carefully. Hit the greens and show off your accuracy.

Course

The opening hole is an easygoing start. Clear the water but favour the right to avoid the first bunker. For the approach, aim towards the left of the green, as the right-side bunker is deep, and that wouldn't be a good start, would it?

On the 7th, this par-3 features a green with a harsh slope. Aim for the right side of the dancefloor, as anything that misses the left will demand a difficult chip shot.

At the end of the front nine, it's time to take on a hefty par-4. Drive left of the first bunker and prepare your tactics for the river. Will you try to clear the water from a distance or hit a lay-up shot?

For the 15th, it may be tempting to aim right to clear the slight dogleg but don't fall for this. Even the 250+ yard drivers will struggle to cover the distance, so favour an accurate drive down the middle to reveal the dancefloor.

What a finish to the round. At the end of the back nine hit a scorcher off the tee to clear the left bunker and land before the river. From here, let your short game do the talking-but beware of the three bunkers surrounding the green.

Clubhouse

A 19th hole that will live long in your memory. If you appreciate fresh Mediterranean cuisine and ice-cold cervezas, then look no further.

Head out to the terrace with a drink in hand, top up your tan, and kick back as you discuss the action from the round. You deserve it after that performance.

The Location

El Paraiso Golf Club is found between Marbella and Sotogrande, two of Costa del Sol's golf hotspots.

There are plenty of hotels and resorts surrounding the course, so finding somewhere to stay nearby is a breeze.

If you're staying near the course, you're between the culture of Sotogrande and the massive nightlife of Marbella. Sotogrande is 46.1km away, and Marbella is 16.7km away. Ideal.

Malaga Airport is 66.4km from the course, and Gibraltar International Airport is 63.7km away. Whichever one you choose, you'll be at the course and teeing off ASAP, as both airports have taxis waiting outside.
