The Marbella Club Golf Resort is a rural course, around a 30 minute drive into the countryside from Marbella, close to Benahávis village. This off-the-beaten-track location gives you stunning scenery and a wonderful peaceful setting for a game of golf, and is worth the drive.
The course was designed by Dave Thomas and offers 6,247m of amazing tee shots, breath taking views and excellent fairways and greens. It is a very well maintained 18 hole par 72 course which limits play and has a policy of an average of 30 minutes between tee times. Add to that the forested areas between holes and peace and privacy are almost guaranteed.
This is a challenging, tight course, which is one of the best mountain courses on the Costa del Sol and offers plenty to delight mid to low handicap golfers, but is not suitable for beginners! The feedback on the course online is almost perfect, with 46 excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and 17 very good, the only complaints being average service in the restaurant. The Costa del Sol Golf website describes it as in their “top 5 courses to play on the Costa del Sol” due to the great design, challenges for everyone, with a serene atmosphere and lovely setting.

The Marbella Club Golf Resort has a stunning Club House overlooking the greens. This includes a restaurant with well-priced food and a great terrace, a bar and coffee shop, pro shop, changing rooms and lockers and club rental. Also on site is a driving range and ample parking, plus there are golf lessons available if you wish to improve your game.
Green fees are reasonably high at 109€, but reflect the quality of the course and the 30 minutes between tee times.

Where to stay?
As we mentioned the Marbella Club Golf Resort is off the beaten track, in the countryside near the pretty white village of Benahávis. Rather than base yourself right by this rural course, we would recommend being down on the coast, around San Pedro, Cancelada, Nueva Andalucia or Marbella to be able to access this course and others in the area, without being isolated, or away from the action down on the coast.
We have an excellent selection of vacation rental properties, focusing particularly on the golfers’ paradise of Marbella and Nueva Andalucia, and we have the option to book both tee times and accommodation on our website. With our Live Golf Package and easy to use booking system, you will get the best price green fees, live tee times and the perfect properties for a great golf holiday on the Costa del Sol. Take a look and come and see us very soon!
