Course: Marbella ClubLocation: Benahavis MarbellsCourse Designer: Dave ThomasEstablished: 1999Par: 72 – five x 3 par´s, eight x 4 par´s, five x 5 par´sSignature Hole: 18Marbella Club is located in the foothills of the Benahavis Mountains. The course winds between Pines, cork oaks, quejigos and other indigenous vegetation offering marvellous views down to the sea and across to northern Africa. The layouts variety means that players will use all the clubs in their bags as the course demands precision and not a little technique. The 3rd, with a slight dogleg uphill to the right, requires care over the second shot to avoid the large lake in front of the wide, horizontally laid green. The 9th offers a spectacular finish from high trees. There is plenty of room but two trees in the middle of the fairway will give pause for thought and further down a 150-year-old quejigo tree guards the approach to the green some seventy yards out.
