Our golf society have played at this course a number of times over the last 11 years and always enjoy both the course and the customer service. We are not great golfers but it suits us perfectly. We will, undoubtedly, return :)

Can be tough to play with some tough holes, we played the course on a showery day, but enjoyed the course. Staff were all very friendly, nice practice area, only the condition of the greens, which were long and patchy in places spoiled a good day. We got a special deal so wasn't too expensive.

We played this course in October and out of the 4 in the area we played it was not only the best kept but exceptional service too... The staff there go that little extra, particular one of the waiters who was a character!

We have been golfing in Spain now for 10 years, and have played at Santa Clara 5 times. I have always enjoyed playing the course, it falls into the category of a good holiday golf course. Not too difficult, but not easy either. The general condition of the course is good, the greens suffer from being heavily played, and selfish... More

This golf course is between Rio Real and Marbella golf courses - two of the most iconic courses on the Costa Del Sol. I booked a tee time for two players and everything was ready when we arrived. We arrived so early that we took advantage of the restaurant serving breakfast and had a full English, orange juice and coffee... More

The course is attractive and well kept, but very hilly. In addition, buggies are diverted onto the paths around 120 metres from the greens (most of them in 'valleys'), so there are lots of enforced walks and uphill climbs that wear out all but the fittest players. Not only were my wife and I (handicaps 25 and 23) worn out... More

We played a round here whilst on golf tour. All in all a pretty good track- condition could have been better and it felt a bit fuddled. It had some good holes, but also some very average ones too. The clubhouse is good and the staff helpful. Another Spanish course that is feeling just a bit dated unfortunately.

Firstly, the booking system does not cater for odd numbers and when you check-in you get totally ripped off for the buggies. 36 each yes 36 and they demanded the full 36 for the third player, disgusting. Secondly, both the 4th and 6th holes have been curtailed and played on temporary greens. Thirdky no marshalling and groups were allowed to... More

Dear Mr. Harvey, Thank you for your comments regarding Santa Clara in Tripadvisor. I would like to clarify part of your comments which are not very precise. Firstly. The online offer between 09:00 and 15:00 refers to "Two green fees with buggy". If you are three players you can book with buggy the Early Bird online offer or the Twilight... More

I have reviewed this course before and at that time my experience was not good. However I chose to give the course a second chance. And I am really happy for my decision. This time the course was in excellent condition. Tees, fairways, greens - no complains at all. Layout is also great with some spectacular holes. Beautiful views. Great... More

This is lovely golf course with great facilities. The complex draws you in well stocked if expensive Pro shop. Great driving range on the grass replicating being on the fairways. Starter polite and officious. First and tenth tees are adjacent which causes delays in teeing off. The day we played it was very busy over five hours for a round... More
