Santa María winds through a valley, before climbing up the mountain. The 7th, a par 3, 200 yard monster, is reached from raised tees and is followed by a dogleg right par-5 with water on the right. The 11th starts from yet another raised tee, skirts a lake and ends a green with a waterfall on the right.
The variable terrain means that the first nine holes are shorter and more complicated, and the second, longer and more relaxing. Careful attention to the golf course and its features is a characteristic of Santa María Golf. Located close to Marbella, this course is one of the most popular in the area.
How to get there: Turn off about 10 kilometres east of Marbella. If you are going towards Málaga you will have to take the overpass by the Hotel Don Carlos.
