Real (Royal) Sociedad de Golf de Neguri

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1911

Real (Royal) Sociedad de Golf de Neguri: If ever there was a course of two halves then perhaps this is it, but throughout you will delight at Neguri's immaculate presentation and condition, which includes carpet-like fairways and usually lightning fast greens that are a marvel to putt on. Sea and harbour views, and generally wide fairways are encountered on the "clifftop" front-nine. This openness is replaced by a more tree-lined environment on the back-nine, where impressive tall pines narrow down the fairways, but not so much that the driver has to be kept under lock-and-key. Of the many excellent holes here, two deserve a special mention. The long par-3 14th is a real gem, requiring a precise shot to an elevated and well protected green. The par-5 18th is a good par-5 with a green that is perfectly framed by the very inviting and luxurious clubhouse. This may be a tough course to find, and perhaps get onto, but its well worth the effort - and the nearby seaside town of Algorta is also a delightful surprise for those not familiar with the Bilbao area.
