Has a fun day of golf. Check in was easy. Rental club price was higher than expected. We were given men’s clubs and assured that they were ladies.

Emeline 2019-09-23
Many divots on greens that players do not fix, pretty muddy fairways on certain areas, and planes are constantly flying overhead from Malaga airport.

Next tee signs could be clearer.

Thomas McPartland 2019-06-12
The staff are 100% excelente, would not hesitate to recommend them and the course , the only downfall was that where to many dead leaves all over the greens + there was not much attempt to remove them i.e with a blower or even try to hover them up that is why I put a 8 out of 10

John Devereux 2019-03-05
This course overpriced for what you get, I have played better municipal courses. No character to the course and staff were not the most courteous.

David Macaulay 2018-03-23
As usual very good

Philip Knowles 2018-01-21
Nice welcome and friendly service. Course was not in great condition but good value at twilight rate.

john marshall 2017-11-06
played original 18 hole layout 29th October, course in great condition, fun to play although pace of play slow, easy to walk, no buggy required, and you can entertain yourself by fixing the numerous pitch marks on every green.

Parador Malaga Golf

The Parador de Malaga golf course dates all the way back to the 1920's and is the oldest course in Costa del Sol. Having undergone some transformations since, the last one is signed by renowned architect Tom Simpson, who has also designed Muirfield and Turnberry courses.

With a length of 6259 meters, this 72 par course encompasses four par 5, ten par 4 and four par 3. With an excellent seaside location, players will benefit from the nice views across the ocean as well as enjoy the diverse fauna that is present throughout the length of the course.

The Parador Course is not a sightseeing course and although it is quite flat it does require quite a lot of planning from the tee boxes, featuring tight exits, thus allowing for a very small margin of error. Be it by the narrow fairways sheltered by bunkers strategically placed at the drive's landing area, or by the slopes of the latter, which sometimes cause the ball to roll out of the fairway, making that 2nd shot that much more difficult, these are just a couple of challenges you'll be faced with as you set off.

You are most likely to find that the most comfortable holes are the par-5, which give you the opportunity to recover and are not too lenghty, featuring generous greens to welcome a long shot. On the other hand, par-3 and par-4 are mostly quite long, especially nbr. 15 and nbr.18, so much so that if you are against the wind, your 2nd shot has to be taken with a long iron and I would even say a fairway Wood.

For me, the most interesting hole is nbr. 7 par 4 dogleg left. Here, because the green is sheltered by bunkers on the left and a lake on the right, ideally you will have to play your drive to the right of the fairway to get your angle and since the green is also slightly sloped, you will have to make this a very gentle shot in order to prevent balls from going in the water.

It is, without a doubt, a challenging course for all of us players who enjoy long holes with narrow fairways and greens with many lines, at times hidden by the shade of the trees, displaying high-quality sand bunkers, which allow us to work the ball.

I had a great time! Overall, it is undoubtedly an experience I want to repeat and one I highly recommend.
