Where2Golf says: 

Real (Royal) Club de Golf Las Brisas is home to the best of three excellent courses occupying neighbouring plots in Nueva Andalucia, Los Naranjos and Aloha being the other two. To enter Las Brisas is to enter a relatively spacious golf oasis, in an area where almost every other scrap of land has been put to residential use. The immense variety and volume of flora here is impressive, so to the very strong Trent Jones layout, which occupies the gently undulating terrain. This is a top-quality course that will test most aspects of your game - tight drives and water hazards on many holes, and quick greens, some elevated, with a myriad of subtle slopes. Variety, vegetation and a distinctly "classy air" is what you’ll remember here at Las Brisas - one of the true aristocrats of Costa del Sol golf. Its worth making every effort to play here - even though visitor' tee-times are very restricted.
