Guadalhorce Golf Club
Guadalhorce golf club was built on an old country estate which dates back to the 16th century. The Colmenares Country House was converted into this stately mansion and the private golf course of Guadalhorce was created. Guadalhorce was inaugurated in 1989 and since July 2003 his Majesty
King Juan Carlos 1 assumed the role of the clubs honorary President. In 2009 the golf course was re-designed by one of the clubs famous members and the legendary Spanish golfer Miguel angel Jimenez, who uses the club and it facilities to train and practice.
Parador de Golf
Parador Golf Club boasts the fact that it is the oldest and most established golf club on the Costa Del Sol.
This grand old lady of Andalucía was first established in the early 1920’s with links to Queen Victoria who often spent time in the Malaga region and promoted the construction of the golf club. In 1925 Harry Shepard Colt (Who designed and built Wentworth), began his construction on what was then a crude nine hole course. A further nine holes were added under the watchful eye of Tom simpson (who built Muirfield and Turnberry) to create the now existing 18 holes (6173m par 72)
The golf course itself is situated at the exit of Malaga airport and is built on what is now naturally protected marsh land that runs parallel to the Malaga beach, giving this course an almost tropical links feel to it. Immaculate green carpets of fairways work their way along the beach, thick reed bushes dense with bird life surround the lakes that encircle the elevated green. The current course record on the oldest course in Andalusia is held by local golfing hero Miguel Angel Jimenez who went around in 62 strokes to win the 1999 PGA Turespana Masters.
