Course Information
A picturesque 9 hole, par 36 resort course nestled on the gentle slopes of the foothills in Benahavís. Designed to maximize your enjoyment of each round, unique features and vistas will surprise at every turn. Beautifully manicured greens & elegantly styled lakes ensure an experience so memorable you’ll want to play here time and again

Hole 1 - A short downhill par 3 sets the tone for an enjoyable and relaxing round of golf. Short is better than long, as there is a sharp drop-off area to the back of the green. Take note of the pin position as the lake can come into play

Hole 2 - Whilst there are obvious benefits to be gained, the greenside ravine to the left should only come into play if the player employs an attacking strategy. The benefits of playing out to the right should ensure that the ravine does not have to be crossed with the approach to a deep green

 Hole 3 - A marvelous par 3. A unique black slate surround defines the edges of this island green with water protecting all sides. Inspired by the great American resort courses, a short or mid-iron to the centre of the large putting surface is clearly the shot to play. Well balanced tee positions ensure that players will find its challenge more fun than daunting.

Hole 4 - Perhaps the signature hole of the course and featuring one of the most picturesque green settings on the Costa del Sol. A downhill dogleg right hole, the sweeping contours of the fairway turn to reveal a peninsula green nestled by the lakeside, and an accurate drive is required if the player is to successfully reach the green in two. Played to reach in regulation, good judgement of distance with a short iron could equally set up a birdie opportunity, though water is a factor if the pin is placed back right

Hole 5 - Teeing off from within the tall trees out into the open fairway, the ideal place to place the drive is at the apex of the dog-leg, which turns to the right. From here a mid-iron should be sufficient to reach a relatively flat green, with some subtle undulations

Hole 6 - stunning ravine runs the full length of the hole on the left, though ample space is provided on the wide fairway of what should be a straight-forward par 5. The ravine does cut around the back of the hole to give the impression from the approach that the green hangs over it - but again there should be plenty of room here.

Hole 8 - A sharp dogleg to the right, the approach leaves the player with an uphill shot to a very well contoured green. Placing the approach shot in the right part of the green is the challenge of this hole.

Hole 9 - An uphill par 4, the one place not to go is left. Pick out one of the fairway bunkers to take on and bite off as much of the dogleg as you wish. Any slightly miss hit tee shot will be gathered by the waiting fairway bunkers. From the middle of the fairway this is a straight forward mid-iron to a large green
