Marbella Golf Country Club is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just five minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Marbella. It is considered one of the best and most challenging golf courses in Spain.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior in the late 80's and occupying one of the largest remaining green areas on the Costa del Sol, the 6.000 meter long 18-hole links course with a par of 72, has been imaginatively designed to respect the natural terrain and make the most of the spectacular Mediterranean backdrop. Each hole is uniquely challenging.

There are numerous cleverly placed bunkers and lakes which will have to be successfully negotiated if you are to achieve a decent score. The course blends in perfectly with the lush natural surroundings which include rolling green hills and olive trees, and is a joy to play it for a perfect Spain golf holidays.

We bought a monthly membership again this year which represented very good value for money. The club has invested in the course and other facilities in the past year which has enhanced the experience. A tight front nine through the mountainous part of the course and a back nine where it is possible to open the shoulders more. Generally very... More

Really challenging 18 hole course with some interesting holes. It's tight and punishes any stray drives. Views are excellent and course well maintained. Indeed money being spent on improvements. Sandwiches and drinks made too order as you get close to the 9th hole and delivered to you a few holes later. Nice clubhouse. Recommended.

Having played here last year, this was the only course we selected for a return visit. Its a good looking course with no two holes the same. Condition good with great scenery. Greens medium speed but consistent. Never attempt to play without a buggy. Distance from green to tee quite long on most holes.

A game of two halves with the front 9 being quite tough and hilly, and the back 9 being a little more friendly to the average golfer. We could not take buggies onto the course due to the recent rain & this made it tough going as there are many hills to go up and down to and from the... More

Dear Mike, Thank you very much for visiting MGCC and spending your day with us. You are very accurate in your assessment of our course and describing as a game of two halves.

I have played on this course before - years ago - without any major enthusiam. But luckily I was convinced to play it once more. And what a difference. A couple of new holes, great layout, fine conditions everywhere, fast greens etc etc, And on top of it all - a superb restaurant. Bravo!

Golf course was one of two halves. First nine very hilly with a few blind shots over rough terrain but back nine much more enjoyable. Clubhouse quite stunning inside with excellent restaurant.

4 of us just played and have come off shoes covered in mud and clothes splattered. The green keeper for some reason had decided to flood the course over night. We were taking preferred lies on several holes because of standing water and often had to hit balls covered in mud. Very disappointing for not a cheap course that could... More
