Costa del Sol, Spain

The two courses on offer are both exceptional, the Alcaidesa Links is the only true links in the whole of Southern Europe, offering golfers’ spectacular views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Africa. The Alcaidesa Heathland was designed by renowned Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas and offers golfers more of the inland natural scenery.
Golf courses at Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort
The Alcaidesa Heathland Course offers exceptional golf in a stunning part of Spain and plays 6671 yards. The newer of the two courses is designed by Dave Thomas and offers a variety of natural landscapes, with wide fairways and outstanding views of the Mediterranean Sea. As well as the local mountain ranges (including the Sierra Nevada), the river valley comes into play where the holes meander along the valley and incorporate various water features/hazards.
This course is truly reminiscent of a classic Scottish seaside layout, complete with heather and gorse bushes. There have been some recent improvements made to make it suitable for all handicappers; the fairways have been improved and widened while the greens have been levelled off. You are also treated to some magnificent views over the Mediterranean to Gibraltar and on a clear day you can see the Atlas Mountains in North Africa.
