Each loop offers lovely views of the coast and provides a bit of variety to your round.

El Rompido North & South Golf Courses

Roughly an hour from both Seville and Faro airports is El Rompido Resort, which boasts two excellent courses designed by Alvaro Arana. The North Course plays at 6,650 yards and requires accurate ball-striking, from both the tee and the fairway. Having been opened in 2006, the North Golf Course is a modern set-up and will challenge your technique. The South Course opened in 2003, is also one for those who want to test their ball striking accuracy, rather than power. With pine trees, orange groves, protected marshland, and tremendous views, El Rompido Resort make a great destination for a golfing break.

Montecastillo Golf Course

If you like to play your golf on the same courses as the professionals, then Barcelo Montecastillo Resort is the place for you. The 18 hole course on this resort, designed by Jack Nicklaus, has played host to the Volvo Masters five times, from 1997 through to 2001.

Don’t expect to have things easy, however, as Barcelo Montecastillo will provide a challenge to the most competent of players.
