Great golf course, friendly staff will definitely play again.

John Devereux2019-03-05
This course overpriced for what you get, I have played better municipal courses. No character to the course and staff were not the most courteous.

played original 18 hole layout 29th October, course in great condition, fun to play although pace of play slow, easy to walk, no buggy required, and you can entertain yourself by fixing the numerous pitch marks on every green.

Parador Malaga Golf

The Parador de Malaga golf course dates all the way back to the 1920's and is the oldest course in Costa del Sol. Having undergone some transformations since, the last one is signed by renowned architect Tom Simpson, who has also designed Muirfield and Turnberry courses.

With a length of 6259 meters, this 72 par course encompasses four par 5, ten par 4 and four par 3. With an excellent seaside location, players will benefit from the nice views across the ocean as well as enjoy the diverse fauna that is present throughout the length of the course.

The Parador Course is not a sightseeing course and although it is quite flat it does require quite a lot of planning from the tee boxes, featuring tight exits, thus allowing for a very small margin of error. Be it by the narrow fairways sheltered by bunkers strategically placed at the drive's landing area, or by the slopes of the latter, which sometimes cause the ball to roll out of the fairway, making that 2nd shot that much more difficult, these are just a couple of challenges you'll be faced with as you set off.

You are most likely to find that the most comfortable holes are the par-5, which give you the opportunity to recover and are not too lenghty, featuring generous greens to welcome a long shot. On the other hand, par-3 and par-4 are mostly quite long, especially nbr. 15 and nbr.18, so much so that if you are against the wind, your 2nd shot has to be taken with a long iron and I would even say a fairway Wood.

For me, the most interesting hole is nbr. 7 par 4 dogleg left. Here, because the green is sheltered by bunkers on the left and a lake on the right, ideally you will have to play your drive to the right of the fairway to get your angle and since the green is also slightly sloped, you will have to make this a very gentle shot in order to prevent balls from going in the water.

It is, without a doubt, a challenging course for all of us players who enjoy long holes with narrow fairways and greens with many lines, at times hidden by the shade of the trees, displaying high-quality sand bunkers, which allow us to work the ball.

I had a great time! Overall, it is undoubtedly an experience I want to repeat and one I highly recommend.
