The feel of the course is intimate, with every hole offering up a succession of imposing vistas as it reveals lakes, expansive views across the long, dipping fairway, adjacent forest scenery where deer graze, mountainous tee shots down into the valley, and obstacles both manmade and natural that are designed to offer a rewarding game of golf.
Old Golf Course
A golf experience surrounded by nature
A championship standard course
The prestigious Zagaleta Country Club, known to residents simply as the Old Course, is a members-only (effectively residents-only) club with an 18-hole course designed by renowned golf architect Brad Benz in 1991 and redesigned by Marc Westenborg in 2016. The brief, to create a championship-standard course on a verdant carpet that follows the undulating contours of a former hunting estate, finds perfect expression in one of the most beautiful courses in Europe.

A parkland paradise
Play is characterised by immaculate fairways and greens dotted with bunkers, water features and changes in gradient, producing a golfing experience that challenges advanced players while nurturing those new to the game. You will play in a lush valley within an amphitheatre of wooded hills and rising peaks, with mesmerising views to the sea and Marbella that come into view as the game progresses.
It is a parkland paradise within a large country estate that overlooks Marbella on the Mediterranean shoreline.
