La Quinta Golf Course
Designed by three time world champion and Ryder Cup winner, Manuel Piñero it is one of the most attractive courses in the area, accessible to all levels of play. It satisfies the amateur golfer in the same way as the professional. The speed of its greens is noteworthy, as is the quality of the service offered in the golf club.
La Quinta has 27 holes, split among 3 nine hole courses, which are completely integrated into a splendid natural landscape of exceptional beauty, from which one can contemplate the Mediterranean Sea which bathes Marbella and the mountains which surround the Benahavís Golf Valley. The combination of these three courses give the golfer a wide choice of possible golf games. The course has been remodeled, both in its design and its technical installations. It also has become one of the courses that hosts a European Tour event.

The course A San Pedro has open fairways and short yardage, therefore, woods and long irons are mainly used in this course. The course B Ronda. A fabulous course with narrow fairways and more difficult greens. Surrounded by amazing house and villas from the Spanish high society, this uphill course leads to the Ronda Mountains.
The course C Guadaiza. Although this course can be considered easier than course B, there are many slopes and dog legs to make it as challenging as the others.
Amongst experts this interesting and beautiful golf club hasn't been an insider's tip for a long time. The courses run along two valleys, lined by grand flower beds, pine woods and lots of water. Manuel Pinero indeed mostly considered practiced players, but less experienced ones get their money's worth. The first part is flat, the second undulating and the third part is a combination of both.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Automobiles: From the highway A-7. on the stretch between Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara, take the exit to Nueva Andalucía to the height of Puerto Banús and follow signs.
