Golf Course Information
The 18 hole, Atalaya Old course is one of two golf courses at the Atalaya Golf and Country Club which is located in the popular upmarket resort of Marbella.
Opened to the public in 1986, the course was designed by Bernard von Limburger, who is one of Germany’s leading golf course architects.
Considered to be one of the finest courses on the coast, the Old Course is defined by its wide generous fairways that undulate gently between flowering shrubs and mature trees.
Club selection is also made interesting on this course due to the frequently elevated greens and subtle contours that need careful judgement to sink those all important putts.
The course also allows you to take in the magnificent views of the Mediterranean sea, La Concha mountain and the lakes and streams that are home to many water birds.
A welcoming cafe greets you at the beginning of your round and at the 13th hole you will find the Atalaya Golf Academy that offers a range of practice facilities and a small café offering drinks and snacks for you to enjoy while you are practicing.
There is plenty to do when not on the golf course with the upmarket town of Marbella and its shops, bars, nightclubs and stunning beaches only 18 minutes away. The popular smaller bustling resort of La Cala de Mijas is 30 minutes away and Malaga International Airport is just 45 minutes away by car.
