Unlock the very best of Spain's golf courses in Malaga
The Old Course at Parador de Malaga Golf is a 27-hole layout and the oldest course in the region, opened by the Spanish Royal Family in 1925. The golf course boasts an intriguing layout, mixing seawater lagoons with tree-lined fairways as the golfer is guided through avenues of eucalyptus. The course is a two-time European Tour host destination with a young Vijay Singh claiming his third European victory here in 1992.
The European Tour connection in Malaga isn’t restricted to Parador de Malaga Golf in this area, with the 18-hole Guadalhorce Club de Golf redesigned by the most interesting man in golf, and Guadalhorce member, Miguel Angel Jimenez. The golf course is set in the plains of the Guadalhorce valley and regularly hosts regional championships, thanks to its excellent conditioning and fantastic practice facilities.
Elsewhere, the challenging layout at Torrequebrada Golf has more than earned its intimidating nickname – ‘The Beast’. With eight dogleg holes and water coming into play one half of the holes, accuracy and shot shaping is required in abundance. However, providing an antidote to some of the on-course challenges is the spectacular views across the sea making Torrequebrada Golf one of the most enjoyable golf courses in Spain, despite the demands asked of the golfer!
