El Paraíso, Cabopino, El Chaparral and Torrequebrada – four of the Costa del Sol’s most popular and prestigious courses – have combined forces to offer a diverse and comprehensive golf package this summer
These four courses – with their distinctive features and located in different areas, between Benalmádena and Estepona – have joined together to offer golfers an added attraction when choosing where to play.
The incentive to opt for one of the four is not only related to the green fee price; it is also prompted by the opportunity of enjoying and becoming familiar with different courses in a relatively small area of the Coast.
“Our main idea,” explain the participating clubs’ managers, “is to offer a varied package so that no one has to play the same course all the time, and for a lower price than what you would pay if booking separately at each of these courses.
The package comprises a ticket book costing 179 euros, which enables golfers to play the four courses with a buggy, except for Torrequebrada, where use of a buggy is subject to an additional fee of 15 euros. The overall economic saving is more than 40 per cent which, added to the possibility of playing different courses, will certainly be appreciated by golfers.
El Paraiso is one of the Costa del Sol’s courses with a particularly venerable tradition and prestige. It was designed in 1973 by South African legend Gary Player, and everyone’s expectations are fulfilled when coming face to face with the first tee.
Located in the midst of one of the Coast’s most spectacular pine forests, El Chaparral is a true Garden of Eden. Immersed in the natural surroundings of its fairways it is often easy to forget you are on the Costa del Sol and not in the Pyrenees or central Europe.
Also surrounded by lush vegetation, Cabopino has some of the best Mediterranean views in the whole area. It is both a challenging and an extremely enjoyable course to play.
Torrequebrada is a championship course that has hosted Spain’s premier events. Inaugurated in 1976, it was designed by José Gancedo, known throughout the world as the “Picasso of Golf”.
These four courses all offer enviable, finely detailed and meticulous levels of maintenance.
