Los Naranjos Golf Club
Los Naranjos Golf Club is a stunning course with a good mix of course challenges that will keep you on your toes. With its wide fairways this is a great one for golfers of all levels. However, this by no means makes it an easy course as one needs to be aware of the fairway bunkers and water hazards designed to catch out the unwary! As quoted from past players – “During the week I played with Norwegians, Swedes, Danes and Austrians. Great golf weather the whole week and with greens of world class. It was worth every Euro spent!”, easy to see people were impressed by the course.
Directions – Plaza Cibeles | Nueva Andalucia, 29660, Marbella
Marbella Club Golf Resort
Marbella Club Golf Resort must be one of the most beautiful in Europe, enjoying a location of unparalleled beauty with views of the Sierra, Gibraltar, the African coastline and the Mediterranean. The front 9 provides the unique experience of three consecutive par 5’s, which not only represent a severe test early in the round but also offer some of the most picturesque scenery on the golf course. If you love the scenery, enjoy the weather and can whack a ball around a field then you are certainly in for a treat when you come visit this course.
Directions – On the N340 take the turn off at km 169 signposted ‘Benahavis’ between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona. Follow the road heading inland for about 3km and you will come across a turnoff to the left marked Marbella Club Golf Resort.
Santa Maria Golf & Country Club
Santa Maria Golf & Country Club provides a great challenge for any player with its natural hazards, beautiful lakes and wild rugged rough. You can enjoy a unique and picturesque playing area with views of the Mediterranean and surrounding mountainside. The first couple of holes play quite close together, however when you reach the 6th hole the course stretches its legs and there is plenty of space to try to hit big off the tee. The back nine in particular offers some memorable holes, with a good variety of very short par 3´s and long par 5´s. This beautiful course comes in at number 5 of the best golf courses in Marbella.
