Atalaya Golf and Country Club is one of the more established golf facilities on the Costa del Sol and it is used as the headquarters for the European PGA.

Situated between Marbella and Estepona, its two 18-hole courses are surrounded on all sides by other top-notch golf courses – Monte Mayor to the north, El Paraiso to the west and Guadalmina to the south east.

The respected German architect Bernhard von Limburger designed the Old course at Atalaya in the late 1960s, just at the start of the great golf rush along Spain’s southern coast.

Forty years later, this Costa classic has stood the test of time and its wide, tree-lined fairways, raised green sites and challenging bunker complexes are appreciated even more nowadays when compared to other modern courses in the area.

Yes, it is. A beautiful and comfortable to play. Landscape in harmony with the course, setting and nature. Nice experience.
I think Atalaya is one of the older courses on the Costa, in fact its greatest asset is its maturity but to be honest its not aging well. When we played the condition was very poor, the greens were shaggy and uneven and generally the course looked scruffy. There are some OK holes but nothing you haven’t seen before at a dozen other local courses. My playing partner had played it before and it wasn’t as bad so maybe we caught it on an off day but based on what I have seen I won’t be rushing back, there are much better courses about for the same price.

Played the Atalaya Old Course and was in a wonderful shape. One of the nicest parkland courses in the Costa del Sol. Our group enjoyed it.
