Description

  • holes:18
  • year:1985
  • architect:Robert Trent Jones Snr.

Real Club Valderrama is one of the country’s most famous golf courses and is located in the area of  SotograndeSpain. Regarded as one of the best courses in  Andalusia, the golf resort has previously hosted prestigious events such as the Ryder Cup, Volvo Masters and the World Golf Championship. The region also basks in the perfect conditions to play golf all year round, so playing at this resort is a must for all golfing enthusiasts.

Since its opening in 1974 the club has been on the forefront of the best courses in the world with backing from billionaire Jaime Ortiz Patiño. Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr., the course is a real challenge, featuring layouts never seen before. The immaculate greens are often tiny but lightning fast and inexperienced golfers will be surprised by the difficulty of the putts. Furthermore, the fairways are predominantly narrow and require players to place their golf shots well to ensure a good score. Needless to say, the various tricky bunkers and water hazards must be avoided to ensure a good score - they will test your golf style to the max.

Undoubtedly one of the world’s top golf courses, Real Club Valderrama is:

  • A flawless resort which has been tweaked to fulfil the needs of the modern golfer;
  • Situated in a prime position close to other famous golf courses such as Finca Cortesin Golf Club;
  • Only 22 kilometres from Gibraltar International Airport, and is therefore easily accessible for those visiting from abroad;
  • A member’s only club, but visitors are allocated tee times during a 2 hour period in the afternoon;
  • Close to the stunning beaches of the Costa del Sol, so golfers can relax and soak in the sun after their round of golf.

Real Club Valderrama is not only famous for its spectacular course, but also for its impressive practice facilities which have received praise from countless numbers of professionals who have visited the course. Golfers can use the practice area to refine their golf swings, or receive golf chipping tips from the resort’s PGA golf pro.

Of course, the history of golf is not complete without this golf club, the place where Tiger Woods made his Ryder Cup debut and where Sergio Garcia won the Andalucian Masters. In fact, many will recognise the resort from its TV coverage of these memorable events.

    Magnífica experiencia de golf

    Buenos días Alba, primero agradecer a todo el personal del Club, las atenciones que tuvieron con nosotros, no se puede mejorar ese aspecto pues es único. Gracias a Fernando Padrón, Diego, Rafa, el marshall del campo... El campo es magnifico y tanto las calles como los greenes están en condiciones óptimas. Gracias por hacernos pasar una experiencia única, lo único mejorable es el fuerte viento que nos hizo, pero eso no depende de ustedes. Ahora toca ahorrar a ver si podemos en un futuro repetir esta magnifica experiencia de golf. Un fuerte abrazo.

    Just to let you know that my husband and I had a wonderful experience at Valderrama. The staff could not have been more helpful. They were all extremely polite and courteous. Every detail had been thought about and to have our clubs cleaned afterwards was much appreciated. The course was in fantastic condition and certainly a challenge ! I would certainly come back.

    To Whom it may concern, May I sincerely thank you for one of the best golfing days that I ever had while playing Valderama on Wednesday. Your course was in magnificent condition and your staff were a pleasure to deal with. I had played Valderama twice before and like all fine wines it gets better with age. Already I cannot wait for my next opportunity to visit. If any of you are visiting Ireland at any stage please call to see our beautiful courses in Killarney. Warmest regards

    Thank you for your email. We had one of the most memorable golfing days out yesterday. Valderrama is a special place and we enjoyed the game very much. Everything was of an exceptional standard, the warm welcome at arrival, the range and practice facilities, the amazing course condition (especially after all the rain on Tuesday!), the café afterward and the proshop post round. Thank you all for looking after us so well and providing one of the best days golf of my life so far. I certainly hope to be lucky enough to re-visit again sometime soon :)
