La Zagaleta - Old Course

This exclusive Golf Club with its Old Course, the New Course and the beautiful historic clubhouse is number 33 in Europe and number 6 in Spain.

Unique is the word.
With 36 holes in Parkland, the old and new course in La Zagaleta settle in an astonishing backdrop of Mediterranean forests with breathtaking views of the Sea of ​​Alborán, Africa and Gibraltar.

Both courses offer a dynamic design of doglegs, left or right, where hitting the fairways from the tee becomes essential for attacking small but undulating greens from medium to close range. They are not long courses but they are very technical with a risk/reward strategy in place in many of the holes.

The peace, quiet and quiet is only occasionally broken by the sighting of a pheasant, a deer, roebuck or mouflon, permanent residents of La Zagaleta.

One of the main attractions of La Zagaleta is undoubtedly its private golf course, designed and designed by Californian architect Bradford Benz. When designing a unique 18-hole golf course, absolute priority has been given to preserving the natural environment and wild beauty. This was the main goal of this prestigious American designer in tackling the La Zagaleta challenge.

When you start your round, you have a view of the terrain, without interference, as there are no parallel holes in La Zagaleta and the opportunity to see anything other than the beautiful wooded areas and natural life only takes place on the spectacular finish at the imposing Club House, after the 9th and 18th holes.

The course has four clearly marked tees per hole, making it easier for the player to choose the desired level of difficulty. This means that one can choose between a fun day of golf or taking on a difficult challenge for more experienced players.
