The course hosted the cream of the European Tour for the end-of-season Volvo Masters from 1997-2001, underlining how good the Golden Bear's layout is. Since then it has received a shot in the arm with a €2 million investment scheme, which included extensive olive tree plantations, a new drainage system and GPS technology.
The beauty of Montecastillo is that despite the fact that it hosts prestigious professional tournaments, it remains a manageable proposition for the average golfer thanks to a variety of tees. The internationally renowned course is undoubtedly a highlight of Andalucia's rich golfing portfolio, and in conjunction with the tremendous neighbouring hotel makes for a memorable Spanish golf holiday.
Monecastillo's golf course receives more than 3,000 hours of sun every year, helping to explain why it is such a favourite with golfers.

Montecastillo's 18th is the perfect closing hole to your round. From the 66 yard elevated tee, you are greeted with spectacular panoramic views of the course, and can see Montecastillo lining the right hand side of the hole. Although the fairway is wide, the lake on the left will always leave a lingering worry in your mind as to whether your ball may find itself into the water!

Barcelo Montecastillo Golf 5* Reviews
We had a very good trip all in all. The weather the first 2 days was awesome but it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter...still great fun though!
The hotel room was very nice, and had just been renovated. I believe they are renovating all the rooms so the resort is on the up. The restaurants and bar were well decorated with a nice friendly atmosphere and the food although basic, was plentiful and tasty.
The golf course was great. Overall the greens, fairways and bunkers were all in great shape. The paths are starting to look slightly worn and battered but that happens with time I guess. It’s a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test of golf and very rewarding with some breathtaking views.
The members of staff at the resort were friendly and helpful overall and the pro shop assistant was even happy to book other courses for us during our stay.
YGT were top drawer. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time! We got a great deal too.
We would definitely go back to Montecastillo Resort and
always via YGT.
I go away with yourgolftravel.com a few times a year and it’s hard to find a venue that offers better value for money than Montecastillo. We always keep an eye out for the unlimited golf packages and if you go at the right time of year, it’s an absolute steal. And let’s face it...in Spain there really isn’t a wrong time of year as it’s always sunny!
The golf course here is good fun and in fairly good condition considering the amount of foot traffic it must get. The tee shot from the final tee is great fun, with the Wentworth-like hotel off in the distance, beckoning you to finish up and enjoy an ice cold beer!
For a no frills golf trip where all you’re really looking for is lots of golf, a comfortable hotel and peaceful surroundings, Montecastillo really takes some beating, especially when you consider the price.
Thoroughly recommended, as are
Just got back from our Golf Holiday to Spain and the Montecastillo Resort...what a place!
The course is no Valderrama but Jack Nicklaus has laid down a really enjoyable track all the same and we never tired of playing the course, even though we were taking full advantage of the Unlimited Golf that was part of our package.
There’s a good variety of holes and the conditioning, while not 100% immaculate, was more than adequate. The greens in particular (the most important thing I’m sure most would agree) were quick and true with signs or foot traffic only appearing late in the evening.
The only drawback was that play was a little slow. However we were on holiday and are aware that this is the case on the majority of resort courses...keep calm and carry on as they say! We certainly weren’t going to let the odd wait for a green to clear hamper our enjoyment that’s for sure!
The hotel is excellent and ticks all the boxes for a group of golfers. Rooms were comfortable, food was decent and having a few beers in the evening after a long day on the course was perfectly satisfying for our group!
The best thing about the trip? The value for money we got was quite unbelievable really...budget prices for fantastic quality AND quantity does it for me anyway!
As ever YGT were excellent and we’ll be in touch soon to book our next break.
All in all, we had a very good trip at Montecastillo. The weather over the first 2 days was awesome and while it was a bit chilly and windy thereafter, it was still great fun! Just wanted to write a few points about the resort golf wise and generally:
1. The hotel room was very nice and had just been renovated; perfectly adequate for a golfer’s requirements.
2. The restaurants and bar were comfortable and had a nice, friendly atmosphere. The food, although not haute cuisine, was plentiful and very tasty.
3. The golf course was fantastic. In general the greens, fairways, bunkers and tees were all in great shape. I’d say the course is a little harder for the higher handicapper but still a great test and very rewarding with some breathtaking views throughout.
4. The staff overall were friendly and helpful. The pro shop assistance even booked other courses for us during our stay because we felt like more, more and more golf!
6. YGT were top drawer throughout the booking process. I was worried that booking through a travel agent would mean we suffer on comfort a little but not this time and a great deal too. Good job YGT!
We’ll be back in touch for next
year’s golf holiday and with Montecastillo in mind, we’d certainly recommend it
to other golfers.
We enjoyed our golf holiday at the Montecastillo Resort, the hotel staff were excellent but we found the food although good quality was a bit boring and not always hot. The main thing that would prevent us visiting again was the price of buggies (42 Euros, 300 Euros for a week!) and the high cost of a taxi from Jerez airport only less than 20 minutes away (£89 for 2 with 1 set of clubs, 1 hold baggage both ways). The course, although challenging, had very wet fairways due to watering but with many of the lakes dried up and overgrown and with long strenuous walks over roads between many of the holes.
This holiday was one I chose myself and was good all inclusive value for money but next time I will ask for the recommendations of Your Golf Travel.
Our golf break in Spain was fantastic so we thought we should thank Your Golf Travel for arranging everything. We spent our time in the Montecastillo Resort where the golf course is well suited to players of varying skill levels. It was in pretty good condition considering the amount of golf that gets played on it!
The hotel and accommodation were good value for money, and drinks and food were reasonably priced as well. Overall rating for the resort was 7 out of 10. The speed and quality of response from YGT staff has been good throughout and I would certainly recommend you to my golfing friends.
Montecastillo was the destination for our recent golf holiday to Spain and I am glad Your Golf Travel recommended it to our group as it was one of the best golf resorts I have ever visited and the whole golf trip was a roaring success.
We were very impressed by the quality of the hotel complex and its facilities. The rooms were good and served their purpose well and the hotel is conveniently situated just a 10 min taxi ride from Jerez airport. Breakfast was of a good standard and the service was efficient and friendly. The beauty of the place is that you can just walk a few steps from the breakfast room onto the first tee.
The Jack Nicklaus designed golf course was in very good shape and we absolutely loved the layout...I ge the impression Mr Nicklaus knows a thing or two about golf?! They also allow buggies on the fairways which made it so much easier and quicker to play the game...there’s nothing more frustrating than leaving the buggy on a cart path, walking across the fairway and realising you actually need a different club to the one you have in your hand! Thumbs up to Montecastillo for eradicating this problem.
The resort is off the beaten track and as such the only place to venture out to in the evenings is Jerez. It is well signposted though and if you don’t mind spending a little extra there is no real need to leave the golf resort.
I have found the service from Your Golf Travel to be very efficient and professional and will continue to make bookings through you for our future golf breaks.
We had a great golf break in Montecastillo and all 4 of us enjoyed it very much.
The resort was easy to find as we had a Tom Tom with us. We were taken aback by the hotel which we thought was absolutely stunning. We actually had a bit of luck when checking in. Although our YGT paperwork clearly stated that we had booked for the 15th of May the hotel had us booked in for the 15th of June. To make up for their mistake we got a free upgrade so needless to say we really enjoyed our rooms! Although the problem took a little time to sort out their response was first class and we really felt like valued customers.
The package we bought from Your Golf Travel was great value and we felt lucky to be in such a nice hotel. The food at lunch time was very reasonable and of very good quality, as was the breakfast served every morning. We decided to sample some local restaurants on our second night and found Jerez to be very nice indeed. The Bar del Castillo at the hotel was a great place to relax after our rounds of golf. The tapas and drinks were perfect.
The Jack Nicklaus designed golf course was great and we all thought it was equally as good as the courses we played at Penina on last year’s Algarve golf holiday. I knew it was a good course because I had seen the Volvo Masters on it but I think the recent injection of cash has made it even better than before!
Overall our golf holiday scored a 9 out of 10. Your service was very good with prompt responses to our queries and the whole experience seemed very well organised. Thank you very much YGT! We have used your services before and you continue to impress so we will be back.
