Santana Golf & Country Club is an 18 Hole golf course par 72 of approx. 6203 metres (just under 7000 yards) in length, set in 138 acres of picturesque parkland. The golf course, sympathetically laid out by the architect Cabell B. Robinson, is set in a former avocado plantation. The final result is a magnificent course with wide and well defined fairways on level terrain, hence easily walkable, where water features play an important albeit not excessive part in the overall design. Each hole has two championship tees and two tees for general play for both men and ladies– wide and well manicured putting greens surrounded by strategically placed bunkers, filled with sand produced from crushed marble. Buggy paths are provided throughout the golf course, beautifully integrated between the rows of fruit trees. Santana Golf course is technically speaking a demanding golf course as the unique design of each hole is intended to give a continuous challenge, even for the more experienced player. The layout of the greens, well protected by greenside bunkers, as well as the many water hazards spread throughout the golf course, will challenge every golfer and require good course management as well as the use of every golf club in the bag. It is difficult to speak of a signature hole at Santana Golf as they all have something special to offer. The long Par-4 18th is one of the most demanding finishing holes along the coast according to the designer, with the lake along the right hand side and a narrow approach to the green. The 4th hole can only be defined with one word: spectacular. The views from the tee are magnificent and the ‘Campillos’ stream provides a challenging approach to the green; or what about the 8th hole, with a length of 595 metre (650 yards) considered to be the longest hole of the Costa del Sol and favouring the longer hitter; not to forget the 12th Par 3, playing downhill, with a very large undulating green, many a golfer would be happy to walk away with a three here... One of the most outstanding features of Santana Golf is without a doubt the variety in design, as each and every hole is differentiated by its own characteristics.
The course was in exceptional condition and the tees and fairways were beautifully presented. The green were pure and rolled perfectly at a good speed. I walked round with a pull trolley and even though it was flat to mildly undulating I think it would be a nice option to provide electric trolleys too. Some Spanish courses are very hilly, but Santana was very manageable, so much so I would play it again on another visit.
Santana is a beautiful course, it was a bit dry, but hey what can they do... before us, there were some very slow flights, so the round lasted too long at the end.
Nice course, a good challenge. The round was a bit slow. I wonder if they have too short a time between groups.
Lovely course and well looked after by the staff
Im Gegensatz zu vielen Plätzen an der Costa del Sol hat Santana ein eher flaches Design mit Tour- Charakter. Die großen Grüns sind mit einer Vielzahl von Bunkern gut verteidigt und etliche Schräglagen erfordern gut überlegte Landepunkte . Ein Cart ist nicht zwingend, aber für das Spieltempo zu empfehlen.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful, and the course was beautifully maintained and a pleasure to play.
Santana was in tip top condition. Tee boxes, fairways and green all in excellent order. Great food in the courtyard also and friendly staff throughout the golf club, with a special mention to Adolf who has worked in Santana restaurant for 10 years now.
Excellent golf course, friendly and informative staff, very good

Very friendly people at reception. Course in good condition. Easy to walk. We'll come back.
a delightful course to play very walkable and the holes are visible but you need to open your shoulders and hit the ball as it's a long golf course
