OLD - The Old Course at San Roque Club, designed by former Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, is considered one of Europe’s finest courses. The course hosted the 2005 Open de España and for several years has been the venue for the European Tour Qualifying School. It is a members’ course but also welcomes visiting golfers. The front nine winds its way through a profusion of cork trees; while water is a main feature of the second nine. Special care has to be taken on the 11th, 12th, 17th and 18th, due to the water hazards. San Roque Golf Club is one of the most well-equipped complexes in southern Spain, with an impressive clubhouse, first-class restaurants (including a popular Japanese establishment) and an international golf centre and equestrian centre.
NEW - Co-designed by Perry Dye and Severiano Ballesteros, the second 18-hole course at San Roque Club has all the ingredients to immediately join the elite of Europe’s golf amenities – thanks to its high technical quality, attractive design and impecable finish and landscaping. The course hosted the 2006 Open de España and is, without a doubt, the sort of golf course that stands out from most in Spain – and even in Europe. The company that owns the complex, Asahi Kanko, run by Japanese developer Shun Tezuka, has always maintained exacting standards, and taken great care with its facilities and – above all else – the natural surroundings.There are no homes in the vicinity of the New Course, which means that no buildings interfere with or spoil a round of golf.
HOW TO GET THERE
