Getting to Monte Mayor is an adventure in itself. The course is located high up in the mountains of Benahavís. Turn off the coastal highway between San Pedro and Estepona at the Cancelada exit, follow the signpost inland and upward for about seven kilometres. Your patient will be well rewarded. It is a challenging yet wonderfully scenic course. The tees at the long 4th hole are on a raised platform and your drive must land on an isolated plateau. Your second shot must be aimed at yet another plateau. Beside the green is a beautiful cascading waterfall. At the 18th the tees are set on three levels from which there are fabulous views across a shallow river to the green 140 metres away. New tees have been built on the 7th and 9th holes. With its natural setting and challenging layout, this course is well worth playing.
How to get there: Take the Benahavís road which begins at the Río Guadalmina, on the border between Marbella and Estepona, and after 3 kilometres you will come across a turnoff to the left. The course is about 5 kilometres from this crossroads, beyond the Marbella Club Golf Resort.
