Founded in 1964, Sotogrande regularly features among Europe’s top 10 golf courses. Robert Trent Jones’s first course design on the Continent. Sotogrande has matured beautifully. It is a members’ course with certain times reserved for visitors. Water makes a splash here on the 7th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 16th and 17th. There are fine houses around the course though none can be accused of encroaching. This is truly an “old school” club where golf comes first. It is a rare pleasure to stand on the 12th tee with the broad unspoilt expanse of fairways before you, the lakes, the distant green, the 13th hole and par-5 14th coming back up. Where else in Europe will you find such a sight? The recently modernised clubhouse overlooks the first tee and 18th green.
