El Higueral Golf
Built and maintained to the highest standards, El Higueral Golf Club boasts a full length par-36, nine hole layout that’s an absolute pleasure to play on. Always perfectly manicured and with incredible putting surfaces, designer Roderick Segar has shown a great understanding and sympathy of the gently undulating terrain on which the course sits.
Water plays an important part in the aesthetics (and hazards) of the course – with man-made lakes that are defined by their stylish black slate surrounds contrasting with the breathtakingly beautiful natural lake which comes into play on the 4th and 5th holes. Quick, true greens are up there with the best, and give the opportunity for the green keepers to put in some devilish pin positions due to the combination of slopes. But this course is perfect for golfers of any level, either for a quick 9 holes, or trying to better your score with another trip round.
Signature Hole: 4th, par-5. This hole features one of the most picturesque green settings on the Costa del Sol. It’s a downhill dogleg right hole which follows the sweeping contours of the fairway, turning to reveal a peninsula green nestled by the lakeside. An accurate drive is required if you’re to successfully reach the green in two. Good judgement of distance with a short iron could equally set up a birdie opportunity.
