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.
