At 7,108 yards, Los Naranjos is a genuine championship proposition that will certainly be enjoyed by the long hitters. Trent Jones Sr.'s trademark runway tees lead into wide fairways, and allow a variety of tee boxes to suit every visitor. The massive, undulating greens are heavily protected by expanses of white sand, and there are also a great many water hazards to be avoided.
Winding through the delightful groves of orange trees, Los Naranjos is always maintained in outstanding condition, making it a joy to play during a golf holiday in the Andalucian region.
The impressive clubhouse is equipped with a wellness centre, offering professional sports massage and fitness service. There is also a certified custom club fitting centre.

A tough closing hole. This par 5 doglegs left, and it’s water along the left side of the fairway and up across the face of the green means that any misjudged approach shots or short attempts at the green in two, could easily find their way into the hazard. Concentration needs to be maintained in order to keep your scorecard on track.
