Atalaya Golf & Country Club is located on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain and holds some of the top golf courses in the area. The club has two 18-hole courses called “Old Course” and “New course” – the names speak for themselves as the Old Course was opened in 1968 and the New Course was built more recently in 1990.

One is not necessarily better than the other; rather they are both very different and fit different kinds of golfers.

Part of the beauty with the Old Course is the fact that it was designed in a completely different golf era, before the urbanization boom that occurred in Costa del Sol and when every inch of area outside a golf fairway is filled with apartments. Naturally, this history makes it one of the famous golf courses in the south of Spain.

It is definitely one of the most unique golf courses out there with an almost completely flat land area and requires no buggy since it is much easier to walk.

The golf course was originally designed by Bernhard Von Limburger and opened in 1968. Since then it has been through several renovations to meet the ever rising standards that golf courses need. New drainage, improvements to the irrigation system, majorly improved club house, offices and even a gymnasium have all been added over time.

Bernhard was one of Germany’s finest architects and as a player he won Germany’s Golf Championship in 1925; he was a true golfing legend of his time.

Atalaya Golf & Country Club Old Course is an 18-hole par 72 that measures up to 5,860 metres.

Today the new courses are often built with “championship standard” in mind and it is nice to see a change for once in a while with a course that is friendly to the high handicapper. Golf is supposed to be fun and not always an impossible challenge to overcome.

With that said; it does not mean that this course is easy.

Early in your round at the 3rd hole, there is a long par 4 that is almost 400 metres long. The par 5, 5th, is a daunting 530 metres and the 12th is a long par 3 with water almost all the way to the green. It measures up to a whopping 173 metres!

The whole area is welcoming with excellent kiosks located at the 1st and 13th tee. You can even preorder snacks or food from a telephone located at the 9th hole.

The golf course provides many opportunities to practice with six areas for short game and three putting greens in front of the club house. To get to the driving range you need a buggy however. In addition, you will find some fantastic amenities such as:

  • Locker rooms
  • Bar
  • Golf tuition
  • Restaurant
  • Pro shop
  • Rental services
