Golf Course Information
Atalaya New Course – Costa del Sol
Atalaya New Course is one of two 18 hole golf courses at the Atalaya Golf and Country Club which is located in the popular upmarket resort of Marbella.
The New Course opened to the public in 1990 and was designed by Paul Krings, who has designed a number of top European courses.
Set in the hills above the Atalaya Old Course, the New Course (along with the old) is considered to be one of the finest courses on the coast.
The New Course presents an intriguing test of golf and rewards accuracy off the tee, rather than out and out length. Careful shot selection is also needed as a number of the fairways and greens feature slopes and elevation changes.
The location of the course makes way for a tranquil setting with beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the blue Mediterranean sea and Gibraltar.
A buggy isn’t needed but as there are a few climbs one is recommended if playing in the warmer months.
When not playing golf the local areas offer plenty of entertainment and stunning beaches. The upmarket town of Marbella with its shops, bars, restaurants, beaches and nightclubs is only an 18-minute drive away. While the smaller but bustling resort of La Cala de Mijas is 30 minutes away and Malaga International Airport is just 45 minutes away by car.

Atalaya Golf Academy
The aptly named “Enjoy Golf” Golf Academy is located just a short distance from the first tee.
It has a full-length driving range that has both natural grass bays and covered synthetic grass bays and a practice green with a chipping area that provides different lies and two practice bunkers.
Practice balls can be purchased from the coin-operated dispenser and for the more regular visitors, a prepaid key is available to buy at a discount and gives convenience.
Coaching is available for both individuals and groups and you can also choose to include video lessons in the well-equipped golf studio.
Ample free parking is also available.
The Clubhouse with its large terrace offers panoramic views of the golf course and is home to the Ventanas de Atalaya Restaurant and Bar, which offers an extensive menu and wine list, as well as bar snacks.
Once you have finished your round of golf take advantage of the sun on the terrace and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat or cool down in the light and airy bar and restaurant. In the cooler months, the open fireplace is the perfect place to warm up and enjoy a post-round refreshment.
