Real Club de Golf Guadalmina – South Course

Sep 04, 2015 No Comments by

If as a visitor you are seeking a challenging round along with a great social experience, then Guadalmina Golf Club is the perfect choice. This complex offers two 18 hole golf courses, a par 3 nine hole golf course, a covered driving range for 40 players and a chipping/putting green. Despite their history dating back to 1933, Guadalmina prides itself on being a youthful and friendly club.

Guadalmina South

The oldest course within Guadalmina’s portfolio, designed by Javier Arana in 1959, Guadalmina South is renowned for its level of difficulty, thus making it ideal for the more advanced player.  If straight shots are not your forte, best brush up on your driving before taking up the challenge this course has to offer as fairways are narrow and well protected by mature trees.

Guadalmina North

This exciting and adventurous course runs almost parallel to its southern “brother,” yet is shorter and more undulating offering numerous water hazards and bunkers. Once again, straight shots are a must as any errant drives are likely to find one of these hazards.

Restaurant

The casual Cafeteria was completely renovated in 2007 by interior designer Mercedes Obieta, a pleasing ambiance ensures the ideal setting for a post-round drink or a pre-competition energy snack. An ample menu complete with a selection of fish, meat and daily special is available, with the option to dine inside or outside on the terrace.

Facilities

Facilities include ample covered car parking, pro shop, swimming pool and tennis courts. For those trying to improve their short game, try your luck at the impressive par 3 nine hole golf course.

Personal Comments

Despite being a regular visitor to both North and South courses and a single figure handicapper I am yet to master the fourth hole on the South course, stroke index one! Any right hander failing to draw their tee shot will almost certainly find themselves blocked out for their approach shot. The signature hole, the par three eleventh, runs directly adjacent to the Mediterranean and is one of the prettiest holes in Southern Spain.
