It lies to the west of Marbella in the stunning countryside that makes up the municipality of Benahavís. The sandy Mediterranean coast lies just 5km due south.

Privileged Location

It goes back to the 1990s when Marbella Club Hotel developed the land as an extension of its five-star services. The Hotel management sought to complement their beachside offerings with the benefits of the stunning scenery within easy reach.

Privileged History

With Dave Thomas on board as the golf course designer and some of Andalusia’s top equestrian experts, it ranks now among the finest in Spain and has a consolidated reputation for excellence and high-end living.

The Designers


The designers incorporated the natural beauty of the valley into the Resort. As a result, the stunning views come part and parcel of every element whether you’re playing golf, hacking on a Spanish thoroughbred or enjoying a glass of cava from your private terrace.

Design Complexity

Dave Thomas put his signature to the 18-hole, par-73 golf course at Marbella Club Golf Resort, which contours perfectly to the valley and includes several water features. Its length of over 6.240m makes it one of the longer golf courses on the Costa del Sol.

Privileged Golf

It includes the highest point at the 7th where you’re treated to panoramic views of Gibraltar and Africa. Keeping your eye off the vistas is equally challenging at the 18th whose elevated position makes it one of the most spectacular finishes on any golf course in Spain.
