Course Description:

Guadalhorce Golf Club is an ancient country estate which dates back to the 16th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Larios family converted the Colmenares country house into a stately mansion with English influences. The U-shaped building has a beautiful courtyard in the middle. In 1987, a group of golfers from Malaga created a Society to set up a private golf course. Once the project was under way, this group was joined by a number of Finnish people and together they took the project forward and the private Spanish-Finnish golf course was born. Guadalhorce Golf Club was inaugurated in 1989.

The course with its 6,194 meters, designed by Kosti Kuronen that was redesigned by Miguel Ángel Jiménez, who uses the Club and facilities to practice and train.

It has two well differentiated parts: The first, from hole 1 to 9, is a “parkland” “Typical English with vegetation and without lakes, that extend by soft hills and valleys, easy to overcome on foot even in the hot days of summer. The fairways have adapted to the terrain with only 2 steep slopes, the hole 1 and the hole 5. Its difficulty is its fast and large greens.


In the second nine holes, ground was moved to raise greens and diversify the fairways. This route is difficult with water areas that influence the holes 10, 11, 14, 16 and 17 as well as the reading of its greens, due to rapidity and difficult slopes. The entire back 9 has varied trees, both native and new plantation and several lakes. One of the most characteristic holes is hole 6 (354 m.) Where it is very easy to reach 2, but it has a raised green big slopes. 

Our course lies in the centre of the fertile plains of Guadalhorce valley and you will not find yourself in the middle of a built up area which may spoil your game.
