A relative newcomer on the Costa del Sol golfing scene, Santa Clara Golf Club first opened its doors to golfers in 1998. Enrique Canales Busquets was the architect here and his remit was to create a course that would suit golfers of all abilities.

The result is a very pleasant 18 holes laid out on relatively level ground with little rough, wide fairways and large, receptive greens, though there are several water carries and one steep climb at the short par four 7th.

Part of an estate that is being developed with luxurious apartments and villas, Santa Clara measures just under 6,500 yards with a par of 71. Such is the quality of the layout, it was chosen to host the 58th Spanish PGA Championships in 2003 – quite an honour for a new course.

the course was looking a little tired when I played it, tees and course generally pretty scruffy, I played it a few years ago and it was in excellent nick but standards have dropped.They do appear to be on a big promotion of new expensive houses around about the course , so they will need to get the course back to top notch to attract buyers

Santa Clara Golf Course - Photo by reviewerThis is a delightful little course which tests the good golfers but is fair to the average. It's not over bunkered, there is some variety to it. Some of the holes are very unique and there is some resemblance in places to the West Course at La Manga, but not quite as tough. Not too long, nice club house with some friendly staff and good food - I can recommend the breakfast. Some of the tees were a little scabby but it is pretty well looked after other than that.

Course in great condition and with really friendly staff which makes you feel appreciated at these financial times when the euros are importantthere are some great holes and a few quirky ones(the par 5) 8th is good example, and it one you need to play at least twice to get the best out of itit held a major tournament some time ago but it would be too short for the pros even from the pro tees-- well worth a visit if in the area
