As one of Europe’s prime spots for golf, the Costa del Sol is no stranger to hosting golf tournaments.

About Javier Arana

Something of a legend in Spanish golf, Javier Arana is widely considered to be the best golf course designer of all time. He was a key player in the development of courses in Spain during the 1960s and 1970s, and the mastermind behind three excellent golf courses on the Costa del Sol. His designs feature on the lists of the best courses in Europe and the Arana Cup pays homage to his creativity and forward-thinking designs. Arana designed Rio Real Golf in 1965 and the course, preserved perfectly today, embodies the essence of his design thinking. The 18 holes adapt seamlessly to the terrain, taking full advantage of the natural features such as the river (Rio Real) and proximity to the beach. Rio Real Golf offers something for every golfer and ensures a great round every time.
