Valderrama Golf

Spain Golf Vacations Golf Courses

Valderrama Golf has been rated as the best Golf  course in continental Europe for several years. A Robert Trent Jones masterpiece, Valderrama was honored as host to the 1997 Ryder Cup matches and has been a frequent venue for the Volvo Masters tournament. Set in the spectacular Andalusian countryside, Valderrama Golf  is indeed worthy of its esteemed international reputation.

Valderrama Golf  is a 6356 metres par 71 with all holes at championship quality  but this is not to put anyone off as it can be fully enjoyed by  players of all handicaps.

The amenability of the golf course to the handicap golfer and its deliberate severity to the championship player owe much to the extensive range of tees. Each hole has a Professional tee (6356 metres), a Club Championship tee (5994), an Executive tee (5498) and a Seniors' tee (5053), as well as a ladies Professional tee (5294) and a ladies Club tee (4873).

The tees are differentiated not just by distance but by careful siting.

Valderrama Golf  has two prevailing winds: the poniente from the land, which in summer can be very hot, and the levante from the Mediterranean, which brings a cooler sea breeze. The changed conditions, depending on which one is blowing, add variety to a golf course that is already rich in shot values.

The Practice Ground is near the Clubhouse and has been described by Nick Faldo as the best in Europe. Since that comment was made the facilities have been much improved.
