San Roque New


Golf Course Information

The New Course was designed by Perry Dye and Seve Ballesteros. It is undulating, precise, and often dramatic with a grand-scale parkland layout. Generally large greens (treacherous when slick) are often protected by spectacular mounds, and some sharply focused nests of bunkers. San Roque´s two courses are almost identical in length, but don’t be lulled by the more open, parkland feel greeting you on first tee. This course is a serious challenge, even before your short game is tested (which it will be). After a demanding start, you may wish to eschew Seve´s own tee for a spectacular downhill par 3 fourth hole, across a chasm. Severe penalty awaits anything short or left. Routed over and around a promontory, with several deep grassy expanses, the course is exposed to the wind, but its position also yields good views over the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Sotogrande.
