The Costa Del Sol is a fantastic destination for a holiday. This city and municipality in the south of Spain can be found in the province of Malaga and is part of the Costa del Sol.
Boasting mountains, sandy beaches, and five-star accommodation, golf in Marbella have become a paradise for those looking for the ideal sun-drenched break. When you list the top attractions of Marbella, high on that list are many of its world-class golf courses, and Las Brisas Golf Course Marbella is no exception.
Make no mistake, it's a first-class members and guests golf club, which prides itself on being one of the best golf courses in Spain. When visiting Marbella, you must pack your golf clubs and book yourself a tee time on this golf course.
There is plenty of history surrounding the golf course and it was originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. back in 1968. Fast forward to 2015 and the course was given a facelift and reconstructed by Kyle Phillips and between them, Real Club de Golf Las Brisas has become the stunning, highly-rated course we see today.
Although the course is quite long off the back tees, a sound strategy will pay more dividends than attempting to hit the ball as far as possible, however tempting it may be.
This is a course that rewards good shot placement and the second hole is a testament to that fact. The dogleg right moves quickly uphill on approach to the green which is perched at the top and if you make it to this green in regulation, you have done a great job.
Although the course is quite compact, this does not detract from what is a tremendous golfing experience and challenge. Featuring many changes in elevation, with uphill par-four holes and downhill par fives, providing the perfect balance of defensive-minded and attacking holes.
The superb bunkering really comes into play on the back nine holes. The short 13th hole, which is a par four, has such good, thoughtful bunkering that despite the short length of the hole, it requires a great deal of strategy.
Las Brisas Golf Course is home to a brilliant golf course and the layout is something to behold which explains why more and more golfers are choosing Costa del Sol golf holidays in Spain.
As mainly a member’s club, which does allow guests, the facilities and service areas you would expect of a top members club.
Excellent service, combined with well-maintained facilities, superb dining options, and a vast array of social events throughout the year, makes a tremendous all-round golfing experience.
Once you have enjoyed the privilege of playing a round of golf at Real Club de Golf Las Brisas and sampling everything it has to offer, you are sure to come back for more.
