Parador Golf Course Malaga: a veteran of golf in the Costa del Sol

 Tags: Golf

Sitting on the beautiful shores of the Mediterranean, Parador de Málaga Golf was designed by Harry Sephard (who also worked on the Wentworth course) and opened in 1925. Its beginnings are linked to the British royal family, specifically Princess Beatrice, the mother of Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, who used to holiday in the area and was instrumental in the creation of the club. 

Ever since its inauguration, the establishment has been known as an icon in the world of golf as the course, previously known as “Real Club de Campo”, was the very first to be built in Andalusia. And although it originally had just 9 holes, later, under the direction and design of the renowned Tom Simpson, it was extended to become an 18 hole course (6,173m, par-72).

On the upper floor, the guestrooms have spacious terraces that afford unparalleled vistas over the beach, the pool nestled in pretty grounds and, of course, the golf course. In one of its most recent renovations, the building was done up in a modern wood-based décor that is defined by understated furniture and clean, beautiful lines. The result is a generous and light-filled space that will make you feel right at home.
