The South Course at Guadalmina is the second oldest in the Marbella area, and has established an enviable reputation, attracting visitors back year after year. The South is a challenging layout, but the good selection of tees makes it playable for golfers of all abilities. Accuracy from the tee is crucial as the fairways wind through the array of private houses and gardens that border the property. The signature hole is the demanding 14th, which is banked by mature pine trees and protected by strategically positioned bunkers.

Guadalmina's North Course is not as challenging as the South, and is a great resort course for the average player. The fairways are relatively forgiving, allowing golfers to hit the driver from most tees. The most notable feature is the Guadalmina River, which winds its way through the course.

One of the prettiest holes in Southern Spain, the South’ signature hole hugs the Mediterranean coastline on the beachfront. There is a large bunker covering the face of the green, but if you are able to overcome this you are greeted with more stunning views
The nine-hole Campo Corto course is the ideal place for beginners and youngsters to pick up the game, and is also useful for sharpening your short game skills.
The 178 rooms and suites that make up the accommodation at Guadalmina are spread across three separate buildings within the outstanding resort. All units have a spacious private terrace, where guests can sit back and unwind whilst enjoying the views over the Mediterranean, the golf course or the estate's manicured gardens.

The Taray Restaurant can cater for large private events, while the Cocoa is an exquisite restaurant overlooking Guadalmina's South Course.
At the Acqua Bar guests can relax with a freshly-mixed cocktail on the outdoor terrace.
The newly renovated Beach Club serves classic Mediterranean dishes for lunch and dinner, and is just the spot for a beer at the seaside.
Great location right on the beach, hotel was clean, staff friendly, wide variety of food on offer for breakfast. Andres the golf coordinator was very helpful and the pool areas were great although drinks a bit expensive.
It was a very good hotel staff were exelent
It was interesting. We had the Chinese National Under 25 football team staying at the hotel and a football team from Karlruhe. One morning we were not allowed in the restaurant because all the seats were booked or occupied, so we had to take our breakfast outside. Fortunately it was just warm enough. The hotel is of course some distance away from San Pedro so we spent a lot of evening (ie drinking time) on taxis. Our room was nice but I can't remember when I last had a room without a shaving plug - perhaps a tent in Thailand ? The Wifi was awful, often unavailable but more often started and then left you holding on.
Nice Hotel good food and friendly staff only criticism is it’s a bit far out if you want to walk to any amineties need a taxi.

Preferred this course to the south course, fairways were more forgiving and more scenic, greens were in better condition, as with the south course it had a well stocked halfway house.
A very good coarse greens were good down size we had to tee of on the eleventh tee.
On our first day on the course, we got round in 3 hours 20 minutes having been left through by some lovely Irishmen on the 4th (even running me back 100 yards in one of their buggies as we were on push trolleys). On our last day the Spanish mixed four ball took nearly 5 hours to go round and made no effort to let us through. You can imagine how frustrated we were having spent an hour and 40 minutes waiting. The Club does not have marshals so we could not ask to be let through.
Guadalimina are greedy. They send four balls out at 8 minute intervals. If a four ball takes 10 minutes to play a par 3, the second team loses 2 minutes, the third 4 etc. I thing we were out about 37th, so this would cost us 72 minutes and yes we probably had to wait 72 minutes. Your Golf Travel should point out to the Club and YGT's customers this way of cheating your customers.
Not as nice As south. Feel like packed it in around all the buildings and roads.
Best course between the two available in our opinion good clubhouse nice meals and good service.
