Top hint for this course

Let's give you a tip. On the 2nd, a lengthy par-3, we recommend using a three-wood. The other option, perhaps safer, is to lay up short of the green to avoid the bunkers and chip the approach.

Full Course Lowdown

An exciting course with top-of-the-range practice facilities. Get ready to warm up and prepare the group for a thrashing. The lengthy par-4s and 5s are perfect for big drivers, so prepare to open up and hit some real distance on this coastal gem.

Beware of the cleverly placed bunkers and water hazards trapping those tempted to drive for distance without accuracy-people slip up here.


A difficult start. The wind often affects play, and the out-of-bounds on the right of the fairway are the biggest threat to start with. On the approach, favour accuracy, as two bunkers cover either side of the dancefloor.

On the 8th, a dogleg left, avoiding the water and bunker is key. Favour the right from the tee box to navigate around this, and the approach should be simple.

The 14th, a par-3, demands a long club to reach the green. This dancefloor causes many challenges, even for the seasoned golfer, so don't underestimate this one. Anything too far right will either hit the out-of-bounds or the bunker, so favour the left if necessary.

And now the 16th. An exciting par-3 that requires complete accuracy. Club selection is key. Carry the water and aim straight for the green but be sure to avoid the two bunkers surrounding either side. Aiming toward the back is safest.


A 19th hole based on the design of local Spanish cottages placed overlooking the course. It's no average clubhouse either, with a sauna and gym featuring alongside the restaurant.

The restaurant serves fresh, local Mediterranean food with top-tier service. Grab yourself a table on the decking, soak up the sun and wash some tapas back with Estrella.

The Location

Located on the coast, you're a stone's throw away from the beach, stunning restaurants, and topping up your tan with a well-earned beverage. Seville Airport is 123km away, so you're not too far away from getting the first round in once you land either.

The local area is crawling with beach bars, meaning the swing oil doesn't need to stop when the clubhouse shuts.

Jerez is 31km away and provides an authentic and culturally rich experience of Spain, from wine tasting to historic sights, there's something for everybody.
