Parador Golf, Benalmadena
One of the oldest golf courses in Southern Spain, Parador Golf opened in 1925. Designed by the English Architect Tom Simpson who also designed Turnberry and Muirfield its location so near the Airport makes it a great spot to play either from the way from or to the airport. Its proper name is the Club de Campo de Malaga but everyone knows it as Parador Golf.
There are three loops of nine here – the original Old Course which stretches to 6800 yards and is a par 72 and the newer nine holes are called the Links. It is situated only a few minutes from the beach so has a linksy feel about it on the holes near to the coastline but is very much like a parkland course in other parts. It’s very flat and the fairways are generous though the wayward drive can land amongst the pine, palm and olive trees.
Parador Golf – The Oldest Course In Andalucia
With such an historic past it is good to know that the course has constantly been updated to take effect of the changes in modern day golf equipment. Such a good job has been done that the course regularly hosts professional golf tournaments. As recently as 2010 and 2011 it hosted the Andalucian Open one of the oldest events on the European Tour and local Malaga resident Miguel Angel Jimenez holds the course record.
The new nine holes called the links present a little easier challenge so the whole complex is suitable for golfers of all abilities.
There are very good practice facilities as you would expect from a course used to hosting professional events and for those wanting to improve there is a golf school and a nine-hole pitch and putt course.
