Golf Dunas de Doñana

This modern golf course is located on the beach, combining the wonderful sights and sounds of the coast with the tranquillity afforded by the adjacent nature reserve. The course has wide multi-tees, Bermuda fairways, large greens and numerous large lakes to negotiate at several holes. The course is a varied combination of links and American styles, suitable for all abilities.

Golf Valle del Este

Europe’s second desert course, opened in 2002, was designed by José Canales. The small, circular tees are raised, giving a good view of wide open fairways that have to be reached over the arid land in between, and the greens are ample with multiple pin positions. There are three par-5 holes. Plan well on the 3rd, a par-4, as the fairway bordered by water offers various strategic points.

Playa Serena Golf Club

A mature and excellently maintained course, opened in 1979, it is one of the flattest in the country. It has wide fairways and the small, sloping greens are well protected by bunkers. The prevailing winds can present difficulties and no fewer than 12 of the holes have some tricky areas of rough and many water hazards.

Desert Springs Golf Club

Europe’s first desert course was designed by Peter McEvoy in true Arizona style with about half the grass areas normally found on other courses. There is an abundance of cactus, springs, rocks, water hazards and dry river beds and while the terrain is fairly flat there are many sandstone outcrops.

Almerimar Golf

Golfers visiting Almerimar can look forward to a course of wide fairways, with a profusion of trees and plants which afford plenty of shade and, at the same time, serve as natural hazards, protecting the fast greens. The course was designed during the period that Gary Player had just embarked on a second career in golf course architecture and was working in association with the experienced Ron Kirby.

Islantilla Golf Club

A 27-hole course, providing three different 18-hole options, it is suitable for all levels of expertise. It borders the Atlantic Ocean and is the first in Spain to be certified according to international standards for quality and environmental systems.

Club de Golf Corta Atalaya

In 1990 the new Atalaya golf course was built next to the village of Minas de Rio Tinto; the original was founded in the 19th century within the Rio Tinto copper mine. The course is 2,300 metres long, with grassed greens but the fairways are bare earth, reminiscent of the original course used by miners and engineers.

La Cañada Golf Course

La Cañada is a fitting tribute to the people of Guadiaro who became golf addicts overnight with the emergence of Sotogrande. The full length Trent Jones course is located in the hills adjacent to Valderrama and is open to some wind. The long first hole sets the tone for a tough round of golf and the 4th is a trek into the unknown with no view of the green until the third shot.

Almenara Golf Club

Almenara, which opened in 1998, has three nine-hole loops, each of which is the brainchild of local architect Dave Thomas, and also provides very extensive practice and teaching facilities. A top class hotel, professionals shop and restaurant complete the amenities at one of the Coast's up-and-coming golfing venues.

Alborán Golf course

Lying close to the Cabo de Gata nature reserve, this championship course designed by Ramón Espinosa is within easy reach of the city of Almería. There is a good balance of varying length and direction in the holes and the technique for each needs some considered advance strategy. More than 60 well positioned bunkers come into play throughout the course and it has a lake to the right of the 5th hole which runs for almost all its length – when doubling back for the 6th it is there again on the right.

Playa Macenas Golf Resort

Natural hazards as well as artificial ones are brought into play in the unique layout of this course. Suitable for all handicaps, it is stimulating and challenging, requiring concentration but very rewarding for good shots. The ample greens have a selection of pin positions.

Marina Golf Mojácar

Opened in 2000 and designed by Ramón Espinosa, this course is located in a stunning position beside the Mediterranean. It is not overly long, but the garden-like setting with its multitude of trees and shrubs is incomparable, making it a joy to play at any time of the year. Sea views are a dominating feature all the way round the course and are especially remarkable from the 4th tee. Additionally there are four pitch-and-putt holes and an ample practice area with 25 tees, of which nine are under cover.

Country Club La Envía Golf

La Envia is set in a gently undulating valley and surrounded by mountains which protect it from the prevailing winds. An abundance of palms and cactus and other indigenous shrubs has been planted along the periphery of each hole, making this course a true oasis in the desert-like area.

Cortijo Grande Golf Course

Cortijo Grande Golf Course is a 9-hole inland course in Almería. This is one course that will satisfy those looking to golf in a truly majestic setting, among rolling hills and not too far from the sea. Almería is known for being one of the lesser developed corners of Andalucia and this golf development represents the best of that reputation.

Aguilón Golf Course

The verdant colour of the fairways and greens contrasts spectacularly with the backdrop of the hillsides of the Sierra Aguilón at this well designed course that integrates perfectly into its natural environment. With more than 100 bunkers, six large lakes and numerous natural gullies to negotiate, playing a round here is an unforgettable experience. It is a very attractive course with wonderful views over the Mediterranean, and although the general layout is a comfortable one, players of all levels will find their game challenged in different ways.

Club Zaudín Golf

A parkland course, designed by Gary Player, which blends in perfectly with its natural surroundings. There are marvelous views down the valley and over the city. The fairways are wide and bordered by 10 metres of semi rough, allowing experienced players to hone their game and others to enjoy it.

Club de Golf Hato Verde

The abundance of vegetation in the form of oaks and poplars, date and palm trees provides a lush setting for this par-71 course only 15 minutes from the centre of Sevilla. Designed by Manolo Piñero and opened in 2008, it undulates over uneven terrain and is very different to others.
