A very long course and difficult for high handicap players to reach in regulation. The course looks in poor condition with many areas needing attention. It was especially noticeable on the fringes of many of the greens which had sand around them. The design of the course is great but it looks as if it is want of some investment on the course condition. Many in the group enjoyed the course but some were very disappointed in the condition.
La Monacilla Golf Club opened for play in 2011 and has garnered quite a reputation for itself among those who have played it while on golf tours in Southern Spain. Jose Maria Olazabal has masterfully laid this course out to follow the natural lay of the land which not only makes the course a challenging and enjoyable proposition to golfers of all abilities, but makes the journey around the 18 holes a real pleasure.
