We loved it here. Worried about previous reviews about state of course but we found it in good condition, with treacherous greens. The fairways were in keeping with a links style course. Beautiful views and lots of wildlife to enjoy. Lucky to have great weather...More

This is my second visit to SL in the past 3 years, the last time the course was in appalling condition but this time it was better - but not great. Tees continue to be a bit scruffy, fairways not too bad and greens patchy...More

I’d never played San Lorenzo before and was a little concerned, having read the mixed reviews, but what a place! Fabulous course, some amazing holes and a true pleasure to visit this club. 12 of us played on Sunday at 12pm and it took 5...More
