Royal Guadalhorce Golf Club hosted a resoundingly successful 12th leg of the 2020 Andalucía Golf Challenge-Destination Dominican Republic Ocean’s 4 Bahía Príncipe Circuit, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary and is being held at 16 of Spain’s finest courses.

The tournament at the popular club, located near Málaga city, was a huge success, with a total of 180 players teeing up, the highest number on this year’s Circuit. The competition was held as part of the club’s “Big Week” celebrations, and numerous members took part, enjoying a sunny day with just isolated gusts of wind during the mid-day hours.
