The San Roque Club (Old course)

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

Est. 1991

The San Roque Club (Old course): usually presented in tip-top condition, this is a course to rival some of the best in Spain. And if that wasn't enough, it's kept good company by San Roque's also impressive and equally challenging New course. Togther, they create a fabulous 36-hole venue for a great golfing day out, and/or a Stay&Play opportunity.

The opening hole on the Old course, a good-length par-4 with out of bounds on both sides, signals some of the challenges that lie ahead on this testing and always absorbing layout. It also introduces you to the luxury villas that border much of the course. There's plenty of undulation and tightish fairways in this challenging layout, with further spice coming in the form of occasional water hazards, especially on the back-nine. Good quality bunkering is present throughout.

The middle part of the back-nine loops around a small apartment-clad hill. This provides a respite from the water hazards, much needed before you tackle the closing duo.

Pick of the holes: After the snaking par-5 17th, with water protecting the approach, you journey onto the signature hole, the very demanding par-4 18th. Here water again threatens your approach shot. A potentially deadly duo on which many a round has come to a high-scoring and watery end.

Stay&Play at San Roque: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

Both the Old and New courses at San Roque have hosted the Spanish Open Championship (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >San Roque). As the home of the European Tour qualifying school between 1993 and 2003, many top professionals have felt the joy or pain of San Roque's Old course. The likes of Padraig Harrington and Justin Rose both won their tour card here.

San Roque was formerly the home of the Domecq sherry family. The magnificent Domecq mansion is now the centrepiece of the club.
