This is a beautiful and tricky golf course for every standard of golfer, from 28 handicaps to scratch.
Allis and Clark have made an admirable attempt to create a rare links course on the Costa. Stunning views across the bay to Gibraltar and hilly terrain make it a delight to play. Take plenty of balls, as the fairways are tight and unforgiving, surrounded by gorse and ravines. A buggy is needed – even for the fittest amongst us- and as you play, consider taking an extra club up on par threes because of deceptive wind.

Tight beyond belief, difficult beyond anything I have ever seen before.
The first hole is tough with a narrow fairway and rocks to the sides of the fairway, which send your ball bouncing high into the sky, never to be seen again. As you progress, the course gets tougher, and if you are not really on top of your game, you could easily become more and more disheartened as you progress around the course. I stopped counting shots after I lost my tenth golf ball! By the 18th, I had suffered several episodes of golf rage and was close to a nervous breakdown.
