La Reserva in Sotogrande is a relatively new arrival to the Costa del Sol golf scene, designed by Cabell B. Robinson and opening in 2004. It has quickly earned a reputation as a very high quality course, with excellent facilities and service for the discerning golfer and further cemented Sotogrande’s image as a golf paradise. In its relatively short history, it has hosted a number of high profile tournaments including the European Nations Cup and the Spanish Copa del Rey. This is a generous golf course at 7,400 meters long, with wide fairways, beautifully kept grass and stunning views. There are large greens, water hazards and plenty of bunkers on the fairways to add a challenge to the round. It is championship quality, but offers something for any player, although the mid-handicap player will enjoy it the most.
La Reserva prides itself on giving a 5* experience to its players and the Club House, with its pro-shop, changing rooms, steam rooms, gym, driving range, putting green, restaurant, champagne lounge and buggy bar. On site there is also tennis and padel club and a wonderful restaurant called L’Olive which is open from 8am for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Green fees reflect the quality of the course and the 5* service and attention to detail, with a 18 hole round with buggy costing 270€ per person.
