The Golf Course

The Rio Real golf course was designed by the legendary Javier Arana, considered to be the best Spanish designer of all time.

Located in the most prestigious area of Marbella, just 5 minutes from the city centre, this golf course opened in 1965. The golf course runs alongside the Rio Real River, from which it takes its name, and forms an integral part of the course, right up until it reaches the Mediterranean Sea.

Its design makes it a spectacular course. With 18 holes (par 72) and more than 6,000 m in length, the Royal Spanish Golf Federation (Real Federación Española de Golf) considers it to be a prestigious golf course and one of the best in Spain, both for its layout, as well as it unique beauty. The course has a wide variety of different species of trees: Pine, Palm, Casuarinas, Olive, Cypress, etc. which make it the ideal place to play golf, both on foot and in golf carts.

Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, one can play all year around, with seafront holes and spectacular views.

The course is suitable for every player, thanks to its more elevated holes, which make them even more appealing as they require the use of various clubs.
