This is a pretty course but it just escaped the ravages of the Marbella fires in August 2012, all around the periphery the blackened country side shows testament to that. Nevertheless the course has escaped any damage. It is short (5 par 3's of which 4 are on the back 9), and if you get a drive of 180-200 yards away then a par is possible on pretty much all of the par 4's without much trouble. The greens look slowish but they aren't, the bunker sand is lovely and its not over bunkered. Only really a couple of show-piece holes on the course. Suits the shorter hitters - but I would advise a buggy as there are some long hilly walks between tees.
