San Roque Club's Suites Hotel played host to both teams at the 1997 Ryder Cup and to competitors at both editions of the Amex World Golf Championships. Since then the club has completed a second course designed by Perry and Dye and Severiano Ballesteros and has opened the Seve Ballesteros Golf Academy. The club also has an excellent equestrian centre. The first golf course, with two distinct loops, is regarded as one of the finest in Spain and in 2005 was the venue for the Open de España on the European Tour. The first nine holes set off into the cork oaks and return to the clubhouse across a pond at the par-4 sixth, a long par-3 seventh, a demanding and endless par-4 eighth and a fine par-5 ninth.
On the second nine, there is a lot more water. The 11th, 12th, and 17th holes all have serious water hazards while the par-4 18th has a pond, a stream and another pond, all of which must be negotiated before reaching the green.
