Santa Clara Golf Club Marbella

Santa Clara

Santa Clara Golf clubhouse is a view to behold in itself, a terracotta temple with huge marble steps

that lead up the three storey building to the restaurant terrace that overlooks the old established

course.The course built to blend into its natural surroundings offers the players with a few wide

open fairways to tease out the drivers and then narrows as it winds its way into the hills. Old gnarly

oak trees stand guard to the entrance of a few greens forcing the players to be creative with their

shots and think their way around this testing course.


Marbella Club & Country Club

Marbella Golf Country Club, home of the Gecko Pro Tour. Familiar to the players who visit the Gecko

Pro Tour office and use the clubs training facilities. This magnificent course, with its club house

resembling a 5 star hotel, gives the players a taste of playing golf at a club that gives you a real

country club feeling.

The course itself was designed by the Robert Trent Jones senior who went on to become the most

influential golf course designer in history.

Situated only five minutes from the swanky Marbella Town centre the Marbella Golf Country Club is

one of the most challenging tests of golf in the Cost Del Sol. The first hole bears testament to the

thoughts of the course designer. The par 4, doglegs left to an elevated green completely surrounded

by irregular shaped bunkers. “The bunkers should never afford an opportunity to get the ball close

without a superlative effort” was a quote from Robert Trent Jones senior on his design of the hole.

The second hole par 5 wiggles its way up to the green following the contours of the hills and again

the designer was quoted “There is no straight lines in nature”
