Ctra. Arcos km. 6, Jerez de la Frontera 11406, Spain.
This recommended course at Montecastillo Golf Club is renowned as one of the best in Europe and Mr Nicklaus himself regards this course as one of his best designs. After hosting the Turespana Masters in 1994, the club then welcomed the Volvo Masters, the flagship event of the PGA European Tour, from 1997 to 2001. It then hosted the final of the Peugeot Tour, from 2001 to 2003. The pedigree of this challenging course is never in doubt!
Sprawling over a vast area of 160 hectares Montecastillo Golf has everything. With the early holes challenging your game with their length, water in play on many of the holes around the turn and then steep slopes and tee shots over great voids towards the end of the 18 this is a true test of your golf game.
The fairways and greens at Montecastillo are always in great shape, with putting on the huge quick greens really testing this vital skill - 3 putts are unfortunately to be expected by most golfers!
A great course, in great condition, with raised tees, wide fairways, large cloverleaf bunkers, stunning views and a hilly layout that's a tough walk, particularly because of the distances between greens and tees.
*Please note; Due to the proximity of the F1 Jerez racing circuit, the course can be a little noisy on race days or during testing trails*
The Montecastillo Golf course opened in 1993 and was designed by Jack Nicklaus.
