Real Club de Golf Sotogrande

Sotogrande, Spain

The first golf course Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed in Europe, Real Club de Golf Sotogrande opened in 1964, becoming the foundation of this hub of great Spanish courses.

Located on the Sotogrande estate, neighboring Valderrama and La Reserva, Real Club de Golf Sotogrande is an exclusive private club, which generously opens its doors to non-member guests, to experience one of the finest layouts in Southern Europe.

Unlike its Sotogrande counterparts, Real Club de Golf Sotogrande isn’t built into the hills but sits near the shorelines offering a fantastic contrast on a golf tour. 

The low-lying, open landscape certainly makes for a more enjoyable walk, if you choose to do so. The open fairways are lined by mature trees, a layout for the golfing connoisseur, with each hole strategically designed for the thinking golfer with some favorable quirks.

Royal Sotogrande History

The quality of the course is evidenced by its past winners, which include two-time Masters Champion, Jose Maria Olazaba (1983), and European golfing legend Severiano Ballesteros (1987).

The idyllic coastal location includes access to Bunker Beach Club on Playa Sotogrande, an ideal spot for a lazy late lunch after your round.

Elegantly set alongside the Polo fields and villas of Sotogrande, we highly recommend dinner and wine at El Gaucho de Sotogrande, an exceptional Argentinan Steakhouse, the perfect place to relax during a sultry Spanish evening.
