7 km E of Marbella

Coming from Marbella (heading east), leave the AP-7 (E15) at exit 186 (A7 Fuengirola) and follow the A7 (N340) for approx 5 km, direction Fuengirola. From the A7-N340 take exit El Rosario, cross bridge and rejoin the A7-N340 heading back towards Marbella. After just 100 metres turn right off the A7-N340 (look for small Marbella Golf sign and prepare for a sharp turn). Follow signs to Marbella Golf for approx o.8 km.

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1994

Marbella Golf Country Club: It required all Trent Jones' inventiveness and archtectural wizardry to create a playable and ultimately enjoyable golf course from this seriously hilly terrain. Few if any holes (numbered with roman numerals) are played "on the flat"; most either plunge spectacularly downhill, or have you playing uphill to elevated greens.

The immaculate fairways can rarely be described as generously wide, and with deep ravines and bushy rough awaiting wayward tee-shots on several holes, sparing use of the driver (or a good supply of balls) may serve you well. Water hazards and plenty of bunkering is also incorporated to further add to the challenge.

You may start thinking that Herculean efforts are needed to negotiate the course (perhaps this is the case on your first outing) but you'll also be rewarded with spectacular views onto the Mediterranean, rugged and hilly countryside and the high Sierras behind the Costa del Sol.

The technical challenges here may not be to everyone's taste (especially at holes like the overly complicated par-5 6th). But as you drink in the splendid vistas from the clubhouse terrace (a certain 30-year old unfinished apartment block excepted), you can reflect on how you "conquered" one of the Costa's toughest courses.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
