Golf at H10 Andalucia Plaza
Located a short 20-minute drive away from the hotel, is the spectacular Marbella Golf and Country Club . The course is a traditional championship layout designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones Senior, and provides both a testing but enjoyable round of golf. The 6th hole is considered to be the course’s signature hole with the long par five providing players with both a tempting but daunting approach shot as the water hazard in front of the green does more than just add to the aesthetics of the hole. After your round, if you feel like you have done enough “driving” for the day the clubhouse restaurant provides a magnificent sea view which is able to be admired from a choice of two shaded terraces. The Club House’s menu is the perfect complement to the most beautiful Spanish sunset.
Only 20 minutes from H10 Andalucia Plaza is the glorious Cabopino Golf Club. This incredible par 71 golf course caters to all golfing abilities and with the beautiful backdrop of the Costa del Sol coastline , even your worst round of golf is made enjoyable.
Golf at H10 Estepona Palace
El Paraiso Golf Resort is only 16 minutes from H10 Estepona Palace and is designed by nine-time major champion Gary Player, it is unsurprising that it is arguably one of the most established courses in the Costa del Sol region. The dog-legged, par 5, 6th hole is labelled as El Paraiso’s signature hole and in typical Gary Player fashion risk is often met with reward, as if you choose to play on the side of caution a bogey is almost inevitable. The layout of the course with its two lakes and meandering streams tests even the best golfers ability to keep the ball straight and in play.
