Majestically overlooking Marbell's Golf Valley the pioneering La Quinta development and course, designed by Antonio García Garrido and Manuel Piñero, is unforgivingly up and down and demands accuracy and stamina.
Most tees are elevated affording excellent visibility and fairways widen to receive good tee shots, but beware of trees, water and large yet shallow fairway bunkers. More fearsome deeper bunkers lie in wait for stray approach shots. The long 15th, a dogleg left, is rated the most difficult hole. Look out for the Piñero brothers who may offer a little local knowledge and advice. The succes story of the 199's La Quinta has already built a further 9 holes, and replaced the 2nd, 3rd and 5th with holes providing a fairer, less taxing test of golf.
You can also visit the La Quinta Golf Academy headed by Manuel Piñero with WiFi zone, the perfect place to improve your swing and in the lovely cafeteria, you will be able enjoy a refreshment or snack.
