Not especially welcoming. Practice ground in surprisingly poor condition. Significant work being done on paths over the first 6 or 7 holes with lots of workmen and earth movement which detracted from the conditioning of this section and the aesthetics. Fully understand these things need to go on but would have appreciated being told (in contrast playing La Reserva a few years ago when also undergoing some work, we received a very significant discount to be spent in the pro-shop. The gesture was great PR and was greatly appreciated). The rest of the course was absolutely fine and very enjoyable and challenging. Super greens. Very quiet day so quicker than average round.
Real Club De Golf Sotogrande is one of the oldest golf courses in the Costa del Sol, yet for over fifty years this special layout has contended for the title of best golf course in Spain. Set out among a variety of age-old trees, with excellent bunkering and water hazards to boot, Sotogrande requires you to think through each shot.
Do not let the challenge of a course that ranks in the top 10 in Continental Europe deter you, Sotogrande Golf Club rewards any golfer lucky enough to play it with a series of incredible golf holes. Sotogrande put designer Robert Trent Jones on the map in Europe as his first hit and is still considered one of his best today.
