Andalucia Valderrama Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation

The Andalucia Valderrama Masters will be hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation at Real Club Valderrama in Sotogrande, Andalucia's largest privately owned residential development.

Real (Royal) Club de Golf Valderrama: Often ranked among the top five golf courses in continental Europe, this fabulous parkland layout is reputedly one of Robert Trent Jones Sr's favourite designs. Understandably it is a world renowned and world ranked layout. Always immaculately maintained, the course winds its way over gently undulating terrain, through a former forest of cork-oak trees. These wonderful old trees can seriously block your way to the green if tee-shots stray offline.

You'll be hard pressed to shoot your handicap on a first or subsequent visit. But for most golfers, Valderrama is more about playing from the pristine springy turf, navigating through the cork oaks, and enjoying one of golf's most revered European courses.

Not surprisingly, visitor fees at the course are steep and the maximum handicap allowed for men is 24 and 32 for women. The good news is that there are other quality golf courses in the vicinity where you can enjoy a couple of rounds.

Almenara Golf Hotel & Spa boasts three fantastic nine-hole loops, several water hazards and lovely countryside views. La Reserva Club de Golf has an out-and-back loop that takes you through a relatively open countryside, while the back nine offers views of the sea and the rock of Gibraltar. The new course at San Roque Club offering beautiful mountain and sea views, is just what you need to test your skills.

If you want to take a break from golf and try out a different outdoor adventure, consider horse-riding, sailing, paintball, kayaking and segway hires. Planning a leisurely tour of Andalucia?

Make time for Vejer de la Frontera, a quiet hilltop Moorish town just 9km from the stunning beaches of Costa de la Luz; Gaucin, a small village of whitewashed cottages and untouched rustic beauty that has inspired painters, artists and poets; and La Taha de Pitres, Alpujarras, where you can enjoy scenic walks and forage chestnuts, figs and almonds!

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
