Spain Sports and Recreation

Estepona Golf
Estepona Golf is one of the premier golf clubs situated among the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja, in a part of the Costa del Sol still unspoiled by development. The golf course is very natural and scenic, and there is often a chance to see eagles and vultures coursing overhead against the backdrop of the mountains and the sea. The design is the greatest asset of the course - designed to challenge players of all levels, yet not to penalize the holiday golfer. The fairways are therefore wide, but the true pride of Estepona Golf is its greens. The Express, Britian,s second biggest selling tabloid newspaper, describes Estepona Golf as a masterpiece and as the fastest rising course on the Coast.

Bonmont Terres Noves Golf & Country Club
The 18-hole golf course of Golf de Bonmont Terres Noves built in 1990 is another masterpiece of Robert Trent Jones Jr. On a 72-hectare/178-acre site he created a course with a highly technical and strategic layout where players can test their skills and techniques. He modeled the rocky terrain to make it suitable for a golf course, which shows his unmistakable signature. Numerous bunkers, an even spread of hazards, very large and well-designed greens, some of which are tiered, make for a good game. The course's terrain is quite hilly and you will be well advised to take a buggy. Other amenities include swimming pool, tennis courts and conference rooms. Additional training facilities such as putting green, pitching & putting green, chipping green and Golf school are available.

Canyamel, Golf Club
Canyamel offers a very sporting course with two faces, embedded in the wide valley of Canyamel, close to the Mediterranean. The 18-hole golf course was build in 1989 and designed by Jose Gancedo, is one of the most demanding courses on this island, with great facilities and where there is always a refreshing breeze. The first nine holes are on hilly terrain with many slopes. From the 5th hole you enjoy marvelous views. The flat 6th hole can't be seen from the tee. A special challenge offers the 7th, a par 5 of 487 metres/533 yards, a dogleg left, across a stone wall and not less than 6 bunkers and several trees. Playing safe may lead to better results. Well-thought out shots are necessary to negotiate some tricky approaches to elevated, multi-tiered and well-defended greens. The fair length of the course and the enjoyment of low scores will surely want you to return to Canyamel.

Herrerνa, Club de Golf
The club is sited close to the monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, which overlooks the course. The 18-hole golf course, built in 1968, is one of Spain's few public courses in the Madrid region. Trees and bunkers are the main hazards, strategically placed on the landing zone and guarding the well-contoured greens. The difficulties of this course can be well calculated. The 2nd hole, a complicated par 5 poses the first challenge. On the second half you will enjoy magnificent views at the 12th, 13th and 14th hole. The round ends with one of the best par 4 in Spain. Other amenities include tennis courts and swimming pool.

The hotel offers luxury massage and spa treatment. State of the art facilities are used here.
