A little history
The course's origins date back to the 1920s and are linked to the British royal family, especially Princess Beatrice of Battenberg, who spent part of the year in the area and was a driving force behind its creation. In 1925, construction began on the original 9-hole course under the technical supervision of Harry Shapland Colt (builder of Wentworth).
Under the direction and design of renowned British architect Tom Simpson (creator of such famous courses as Turnberry, Muirfield and Ballybunion), it was expanded to 18 holes (6173 m, par 72). The course record is held by Málaga native Miguel Ángel Jiménez, set during the 1999 PGA Turespaña Masters.
