Lauro 27 Golf

Nov 26, 2011 No Comments by

Lauro 27 Golf is located on Ctra. Coin A – 77 366 km from Alhaurin de la Torre and Alhaurin el Grande, a 35 minute drive from Marbella. The course has 27 holes, the first 18 holes were inaugurated in 1993 and the last nine holes in 2003.

The course was designed by the late Folco Nardi, his vision to create a technically challenging course. With strong concentration and the correct selection of the clubs, you could end up with a score to be proud of, however do not be fooled, this course may look rather easy, but in my experience from a 9 hcp, I very rarely hit that mark when returning to the clubhouse.

The extension of the course with holes 19-27, designed by Mariano Benitez, follow the same line and equally requires concentration and skill. The course is moderately flat and can easily be played on foot, with only two holes located on the side of the mountain, from which you can enjoy spectacular views over the valley of Guadalhorce and the Mediterranean.

One of the things that is always impresses at Lauro is the kindness you meet. Traffic warden, caddy master and her attendants, starters and waiters, one is never hunted when playing golf, you can enjoy the superb nature and a game in peace.  Changing rooms and personal facilities however need to be modernised somewhat.

The club house is located in an old Andalucian building, Cortijo el paredón, where you can find the restaurant, changing and locker rooms, pro shop and the caddy master office. You will also find a swimming pool, a padel tennis club, lawn bowls club and an equestrian centre on the premises. In the centre of the “cortijo” you will find a fabulous patio, with enormous rubber plants offering shade to the players enjoying their food and drinks after a game of golf.

The restaurant continually serve tasty tapas and very often have special deals; this summer they were offering three tapas portions for €3. The prices in general are very low, making this experience a great value for money.

All in all – I strive to visit as often as I can with my five year old daughter as it is well worth the time and money.
