Atalaya Golf & Country Club
Atalaya Golf & Country Club has two splendid 18-hole courses, the Old Course and the New Course. The club lies in Andalusia, between Estepona and Marbella and apart from the two 18-hole courses it also offers one of the biggest practice courses in Spain where golf classes are taught in many languages.
First opened in 1986 and designed by Bernard von Limburger, Atalaya´s Old Course is one of the finest courses on the Costa del Sol. The wide generous fairways undulate gently between mature trees and flowering shrubs providing shade and all year colour. The frequently elevated greens can make club selection interesting and their subtle contours need careful judgement to sink those all-important putts.
Opened in 1990, the New Course designed by Paul Krings presents an intriguing test of golf. Set in the hills above the Atalaya Old Course, the New Course rewards accuracy off the tee, rather than out and out length. A number of the fairways and greens feature slopes and elevation changes, requiring careful shot selection.
