Located near the popular seaside resort town of Marbella, Santa Clara is a pleasant parkland course that is ideal for the average golfer. The course is easily accessible, and is reputed to be one of the best maintained layouts in the area.
The greens are large and the fairways are relatively forgiving, but it is essential to avoid the strategically positioned bunkers that are a constant threat. Santa Clara is a relatively gentle walk, being quite flat, while the highlight undoubtedly comes around the ‘Santa Clara Corner' starting from the 12th; this picturesque sequence of par 3, 4 and 5 holes will challenge every golfer to come up with some gutsy shots, and can result in triumph or disaster.
The combination of fascinating holes and stunning scenery will ensure that every visitor to Santa Clara as part of a golf holiday will leave satisfied.
Course is a mess! Wild Pigs have done more work than green staff ! Would never play again
Great transfers and great golf
Again, they had hollowtined the greens which made them bumpy and covered with sand. This was really disappointing as it was June and the course was fully booked. Poor greens spoilt an otherwise lovely course.
Another excellent course.bit of room if you weren't quite straight
A very good course the coarse overall was the best out of the four
Absolutely fantastic course , would definitely play here again
The groups favourite as it was more forgiving.Staff great and a must to return to.
The course is a little cramped with a number of holes up and down which led to players constantly playing on one another’s fairway. The initial impact is disappointing too, just getting the golf buggy was bit of a chore.
Great course, made to feel very welcome by the staff. Would definitely visit again.
Golf club was excellent and condition of course was superb, however the layout is very poor with too many holes on top of each other. Felt very cramped.
Course and facilities were great and so were the staff
A great course but very busy
Excellent staff great very welcoming would and will go back
Wide fairways so you can open your shoulders, every green can be reached in regulation so it's down to the putting.
This was our third experience of golfing in Spain. Again very glad to have the buggy! Getting spoilt now with beautiful views and vistas of the area. We were warned prior to teeing off about the threat of thieves on some of the holes, good to see the marshals presence in those areas.
Quite close to Marbella G&CC but less in the hills and hence more forgiving. Again good clubhouse facilities. We were given a magnum of wine to use as a prize. That did not last very long! Great welcome and good facilities.
Played this course twice, everyone very helpful, food at this golf club is excellent and reasonable.
Played here many times and going to start looking to play another one on our next visit. A few holes are spoilt by trees in the middle of the fairways and blind holes and some big run offs even after a good drive.
Beautiful course a pleasure to play on. Just sorry didn’t play both days on this course.
Initial arrival and meet & greet poor as no one to identify where to go. Course warning about theft on holes 11 to 14 a worry, but at least it was transparent. Course wet after recent heavy rainfall. Overall good course and facilities. Good restaurant manager post golf.
Difficult conditions due to the rain which leads to lower overall mark but it is a good course with plenty of challenges and opportunities. I'm sure the course would be in much better condition during spring and summer.
Thought there were a number of "Mickey Mouse " holes particularly the 10th. Doubt whether we will return. Not pleasant staff and the toilets particularly the one experienced by the female members of the group nothing short of disgusting.
Very, very slow. Back 9 is better than the front 9. Some good holes. Over 5 hours with everyone in buggies is not good.
Courses get better as the goes on.
Probably the easiest of the 4 courses, but again was not in great condition
Greens not great and many of the holes far too close together. Very picturesque.
Nice course, bit tatty in places but very forgiving. Starter/marshall is a great character, mad bus feel very welcome and is a real credit to the club.
A nice course with some tricky holes with sloping fairways and tight par 3's. What let this course down was the condition of a lot of the tees, with bare patches and large areas of sand & seed. Greens were soft with some bare areas and a lot of worm casts all over the green making putting difficult.
Great condition and well maintained
Cracking course in great condition some super holes, wonderful par 3's, interesting par 4's and excellent par 5 holes. A course that provides a challenge to all. The food here is also superb as are were all the staff.
Nice course greens and fairways in good condition plenty of variation in elevation with nice water features and some interesting par 3s Would definitely return.
Some tough pin locations. Some of the golfers ahead were really slow and needed marshals to jolly them along.
super coarse and played here 4 times and would play again, cracking greens and not easy.
Another stunning course
