I clearly played a different golf course to that so glowingly described in the introduction. "Technically it is a masterpiece of the art" - translation - a lot of soil was shaped and a lot of money spent. This is somewhat contradicted by being "a celebration of golf in its purest form" - translation - a terrain which naturally lends itself to a golf course leaving the designer the task of levelling land for tees, shaping greens and siting bunkering. This is a decent enough course, worth playing, but certainly not top 20 in Spain. In the immediate general area La Cala, Mijas, Los Naranjos, Rio Real and Santana are superior. Another average course pushed up the rankings.
