Real Club de Golf Sotogrande


Based in Sotogrande, near Gibraltar.

RCG Sotogrande is often voted to be among the top ten golf courses in Europe – and rightly so. “Sotogrande Old”, as it is called by the locals, boasts mature vegetation with pine, cork oaks, eucalyptus and giant palm trees enhancing the natural beauty of the surroundings.

An older well established course that is consistently well kept. A challenging course, with water coming into play on several holes. Holes 7 and 12 are stunning and overall RCG Sotogrande is a great course that provides an enjoyable walk. In 1994, His Majesty the King Juan Carlos I awarded the Club with the title of Royal (“Real”).

The greens are large and the tees are very long, some would say excessively so, but they allow for variations in pin placement and the length of hole. The contours of the greens are typical Trent Jones and the bunkers were the first in Europe to be filled with brilliant white crushed marble. Another “first” at Sotogrande was the use of Bermuda grass on fairways.

The Sotogrande Golf course opened in 1964 and was designed by Robert Trent Jones.
