Rio Real Golf Club
This course runs alongside the Rio Real River and the water hazard comes into play on a number of holes. Beware of hole number 3, this par 3 you either hit the green or you play your next 3rd from the Tee. I am not ashamed to say I hit my 5th from the Tee.
Jose Rivero beat Seve Ballesteros at The Spanish PGA Championship in 1989 at Los Naranjos and if it’s good enough for these two Spanish Legends it’s good enough for us mere mortals. Los Naranjos is a lovely facility, excellent layout and has lost none of its charm.
The new kid on the block. It played host to The European Tour Costa Del Sol Match Play Tournament in 2019. The pros loved it and this course is earmarked for greatness. Play it before the inevitable green fee rise, currently, it represents great value for money.
It was announced only very recently that the 2023 Solheim Cup will be staged at Finca Cortesin. In my opinion it’s the best course on the Costa Del Sol. The Volvo Match Play was staged here for 5 years from 2008. Winners include Ian Poulter, Ross Fisher, Nicolas Colsaerts, all former European Ryder Cup players. It is well worth a visit for the practice facilities alone. Give yourself an hour before your tee time to complete the experience, it is not to be missed.
I have chosen these 4 courses based on my experience, all are within a short distance from the hotel and all are in superb condition. A Golf Holiday simply does not get any better.
