This course, located in the Axarquía area to the east of Málaga, in the municipality of Vélez Málaga, opened a second nine in 2004. Baviera Golf, designed by former Ryder Cup star José María Cañizares, is a flat course, fairly easy except for the greens which are large, on average, 700 square metres with slopes and swales. The fairways are very forgiving 80 to 90 metres wide and without climbs or drops. There are four lakes on the first nine, affecting the 3rd, 4th, and 5th holes. The signature hole is the 4th, a par-5 of 500 metres where two lakes come into play, one with an expanse of water covering 15,000 square metres and the other protecting entry to the green.
HOW TO GET THERE
Access to Baviera Golf from the Costa del Sol is via the dual-carriageway road from Málaga to Motril at Caleta de Vélez. The exit is some 700 metres from the Marina at Vélez.
