Measuring just less than 5,600 yards, Cabopino is a short, tight course laid out on hilly terrain between Marbella and Fuengirola. The little-known Spanish architect Juan Ligues Creus designed the course and it’s a relative newcomer to the Costa del Sol golf circuit, opening for play in 2001.

Course management is all important at Cabopino and thinking golfers will keep the driver in the bag and brush up beforehand on their iron play as it pays to plot your way around here – fairways are relatively narrow but greens are receptive to properly struck approach shots.

The best hole on the course is played early in the round at the downhill 307-yard, short par four, 3rd which tempts big hitters to go for the green in one, avoiding the large bunker in front of the raised putting surface.

The only two par fives on the course are played at the acutely doglegged 12th and the uphill 14th - banish any thoughts of potential birdies though as the arduous routing of these holes is such that a five on the scorecard at each of these will feel like a pair of fours!

We played this as a warm up at the start of a golf tour. Despite pretty grim weather, we enjoyed it far more than expected. It is not long but it is a good test.

A proper layout, almost no 'up and down' neighbouring holes, plenty of variation and slopes. You have to think your way round, and a couple of holes are seriously tight. A very good set of par 3s.

Tees were a bit scruffy, but the fairways were in decent condition, and the

greens were very good.

We were made very welcome in the pro shop and clubhouse, and although the latter is pretty basic, the food was good.

It is by no means the best course in the Marbella area, but we would definitely go back, and I would be perfectly happy to play Cabopino regularly.

I am not certain I would rush back to play here but I must admit it did have some spectacular holes. The 3rd has a tee about 100 yards above the fairway and the shot is quite intimidating. In general though the course is quite short and it is fairly infrequently that a driver or even a wood is required of the tee. Nevertheless it remains a good test of golf and apart from the shortness the holes are varied in character. I was not particularly impressed with the club house - the bar and eating area had all the charm of a British transport café and the outside area was just chairs and tables on grass, no formal patio's as such.
