Marbella Golf Country Club is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol, just five minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Marbella. It is considered one of the best and most challenging golf courses in Spain.

Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior in the late 80's and occupying one of the largest remaining green areas on the Costa del Sol, the 6.000 meter long 18-hole links course with a par of 72, has been imaginatively designed to respect the natural terrain and make the most of the spectacular Mediterranean backdrop. Each hole is uniquely challenging.

There are numerous cleverly placed bunkers and lakes which will have to be successfully negotiated if you are to achieve a decent score. The course blends in perfectly with the lush natural surroundings which include rolling green hills and olive trees, and is a joy to play it for a perfect Spain golf holidays.

Having played here last year, this was the only course we selected for a return visit. Its a good looking course with no two holes the same. Condition good with great scenery. Greens medium speed but consistent. Never attempt to play without a buggy. Distance from green to tee quite long on most holes.

A game of two halves with the front 9 being quite tough and hilly, and the back 9 being a little more friendly to the average golfer. We could not take buggies onto the course due to the recent rain & this made it tough going as there are many hills to go up and down to and from the... More

Dear Mike, Thank you very much for visiting MGCC and spending your day with us. You are very accurate in your assessment of our course and describing as a game of two halves. The front nine can be very trying for the first time player and needs to be learned. I think you'll have a much better appreciation of it... More

I have played on this course before - years ago - without any major enthusiam. But luckily I was convinced to play it once more. And what a difference. A couple of new holes, great layout, fine conditions everywhere, fast greens etc etc, And on top of it all - a superb restaurant. Bravo!

Golf course was one of two halves. First nine very hilly with a few blind shots over rough terrain but back nine much more enjoyable. Clubhouse quite stunning inside with excellent restaurant.

4 of us just played and have come off shoes covered in mud and clothes splattered. The green keeper for some reason had decided to flood the course over night. We were taking preferred lies on several holes because of standing water and often had to hit balls covered in mud. Very disappointing for not a cheap course that could... More

Dear Mark, I apologize for what seems to be an accidental over irrigation of the course the night before you played. I have been on the course everyday, working with our green keepers, and talking to our clients as they play. This is the first mention of a problem as severe as you have described in this review. We do... More

Challenging course and more so if its windy. You get punished if your drive is wide of the fairway. Great views throughout. Fairways and greens good condition.

Beautiful outdoor dining area. Stunning views of the coast. Went for food not golf. Food was good. Had the tempura prawns. Very nice. Everyone else happy. Servers were very nice. Hampered a bit by the golf group who had just finished playing but sure it is a golf club😉😉 Would definitely go back. Really nice space.

I wanted to play the Marbella Club for nostalgic reasons, having played here 20 years ago when it was not doing well for business. At that time the staff were very friendly and accommodating and I have fond memories although I remember the course layout as being forced into the landscape. This time, I already felt a bit funny when... More
