Los Arqueros Golf is an exciting course winding through two valleys that offer impressive views down to the coast.
The challenging par 71 golf course was designed by Seve Ballesteros and opened in 1991. The golf the course appeals to attacking players prepared to make bold shots. It is not a particularly long course, but sometimes tight with hazards constantly in play, which may lead to the unaccustomed player being overcautious.
The par 5, hole 8 is tricky, with a tight dog-leg to the right which slopes sharply downhill to the green, with an out-of-bounds water feature in front of the green. The 13th hole, with its elevated tee requires an accurate and long drive to a downhill area guarded by bunkers. The 3rd hole features a lake to the left of the fairway and bunkers to the right.
The surrounding land was taste-fully developed by the Taylor Woodrow construction group in the 2000s, and further investment was made to improve course conditioning and remove the unfair punishment of slightly miss-hit shots.
The club house restaurant terrace overlooks the first tee with views down the valley to the Mediterranean sea.
Facilities include restaurant, golf academy, meeting rooms, tennis and paddle courts, and a well equipped gymnasium.
The whole course and valley is best viewed from the San Pedro to Ronda road. Los Arqueros is locally known as a district of Marbella although it actually lies in the municipality of Benahavis.
