Among the most recent Spanish Top 100 rankings from Top100GolfCourses.com, Sotogrande® has claimed the top two spots amongst a host of impressive golfing destinations within Spain.
World-renowned Real Club Valderrama has once again been rated as the best course in the country, with its constant presence within the global professional game. As the 1997 Ryder Cup venue, and soon to be host of the new innovative LIV Golf series in June, it remains one of the most revered courses in Europe.
Sotogrande’s oldest golf course, Real Club Sotogrande, moved up to second place in the national rankings. This Robert Trent Jones championship layout boasts subtleties and a classic ambience that excites and charms golfers in equal measure – key in elevating it to this fantastic position.
In addition to the top two ranked courses, the quality of golf in Sotogrande® is further exemplified by the presence of La Reserva Club at number 13 on the list, with the 27-hole Almenara Golf also featured within the rankings.
Sotogrande® has a well-documented relationship with championship level golf, and between the courses, the area has seen a Ryder Cup, World Golf Championships, European Tour (DP World Tour) events and Ladies European Tour events.
These four championship golf courses are located within just a few kilometres in Sotogrande®: Real Club Valderrama, Real Club Sotogrande, La Reserva Club, and Almenara Golf. Those visiting the area are truly spoilt for choice with the pedigree of golf in this corner of the Costa del Sol.
These exciting rankings come at a particularly notable time for the destination, as Sotogrande® celebrates its 60th anniversary this year – with a plentiful calendar of events to enjoy.
