Real Club Valderrama is one of the country’s most famous golf courses and is located in the area of Sotogrande, Spain. 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.

It was a day we will cherish07/07/2017this review is the subjective opinion of a GOLFBOO user and not of GOLFBOO S.LWe cannot express enough our gratitude for the opportunity to play the Course. The course was terrific and in beautiful condition. One of the finest courses we have ever played. The Cork trees are beautiful. The set up was great, and the tees were very fair for both myself and my wife. The people in the shop were very friendly as was the caddie master. The first caddie assigned, however, spoke no English. We asked the caddie master if he had someone who spoke a little English, as we speak a little Spanish but not necessarily enough "Golf language". He exchanged caddies, gave us a young man named Tommy, who was excellent throughout the round. Though we did not play our best, he was patient and knowledgeable on the course and the greens. After the round the staff was again most accommodating. We will be returning to this area, and hope we may again visit Valderrama. It was a day we will cherish.
