In the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja lies the San Roque Club, whose two outstanding championship golf courses are the reason behind its continued position within the elite of Andalucian golfing resorts.
San Roque's Old Course was officially unveiled in 1990, and was designed by the legendary Dave Thomas, the man responsible for so many terrific projects at home and abroad. Following revision work on the bunkering by Seve Ballesteros, the Old Course hosted the European Tour's finest professionals for the 2005 Spanish Open.
The course is an exacting proposition, whose tight, sloping fairways wind through the cork trees that make the estate so famous, affording incredible views of the surrounding mountains. The inward half is the more spectacular, traversing the rolling hills and demanding brave carries over the cavernous gullies. The closing holes take in the shimmering lakes at the centre of the resort, presenting a finish as beautiful as it is challenging.
With an internationally renowned golf academy and two of the region's finest championship course, visiting the San Roque Club is an essential component of any good golfing holiday in Southern Spain.
fine course still have Valderama ahead of it
The best course we played all week. Teeing areas well maintained and course well manicured. Easy walking course. Good views , well defined penalty areas and smooth greens. Should hurry to play this course as it will be members only soon. I would return to play this course. The difference in condition between this course and the New course is bizarre unless you consider that members do not play it and therefore it gets less attention. Lots of members only areas within the bar, restaurant and patio facilities. Good practice facilities.
It was a privilege to play the Old Course, wonderful.
Very interesting course. Excellent Clubhouse. I would definitely return to this course.
We got the impression that it was very much a members course, with visitors tolerated rather encouraged and welcomed. We played later in the day and the greens were a little ‘scratchy’
