Santa María Golf Club, a treat for golfers and non-golfers alike
Published on: 22-06-2018

Nestled between green valleys of pine and cork-oak, even avowed non-golfers couldn’t fail to appreciate the beauty of this privileged spot in the hills of Andalucía. With considered landscaping that ensures trees and flowers seem to bloom all year round, it is surely one of the most attractive of the courses that are located on the ‘Costa del Golf’.

The hillside position surveys the Mediterranean coast, yet it is situated just 200 metres from some of the best beaches in Marbella.

Recently celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Santa María Golf Club was originally conceived by a group of like-minded golfers who discovered a site that, while larger than initially intended, provided space for an 18-hole course that could be further expanded to 36-holes.

At the time, the main motorway links to Málaga had yet to be constructed, however the group forged ahead and Santa María Golf Club was born.

While a well-designed course, with landscaped surroundings and wonderful views are in themselves appealing, equally as important for many is the ‘19th Hole’ – the Club House. Generally thought of as the heart of the course, the club house is where a community is forged over drinks, food and war stories after a hard day on the fairways!

Restaurant H19 has been a fixture of the club since 2006 and offers an impressive array of facilities. From a quick coffee before a round to lunch or dinner, the restaurant is open all day and into the evening, offering wonderful views and a convivial atmosphere in which to meet friends. Also available are a number of attractive private rooms that can be used for birthdays and anniversaries – indeed any special celebration can be catered for.

There is even more to the golf club than just golf, though – members also have the opportunity to take advantage of other superb facilities such as tennis courts and a bowling club – indeed, it could be said that Santa María Golf Club has something for everyone!

On Sunday 24th of June a charity golf competition will take place in aid to Alzheimers Marbella. Residencia Estates is one of the sponsors of the event.
