Parador de Málaga Golf course is in a privileged location, in the heart of the Costa del Sol on the sea shore, just 10 minutes from Malaga city centre and the Malaga International Airport. Over the years, the Parador de Malaga course has been transformed into one that is both demanding for veterans and accessible for novices. The holes on the course at the Real Club de Campo de Malaga (which belongs to the Parador Nacional del Golf) are steeped in history. The pioneers of the sport in the province took their first shots on its fairways. With a history reaching sixty years, the club's facilities are in perfect condition thanks to years of careful maintenance.
Due to its age, the course has a pleasant natural maturity about it; the flat open fairways are forgiving for the higher handicap players and welcoming to the beginner; there are also a few considerable par 4s on the back nine to cope with, Which make the last six holes quite challenging unless you are a confident iron player. There is no short Par 3; the shortest is the 150 Meter 13th. And the hardness of the bunker sand may be a little disappointing for most players.
The greens have steadily improved over the past few years, and the course is flat so it can be walked. However, it is generally a very busy course so take care to book in advance when possible.
Its origins date back to the last century, the early 1920s. The early days of the course are linked to the British royal family, especially Princess Beatrice of Battenberg, mother of Queen Victoria Eugenie. She spent part of the year in the region and was a driving force behind the club's creation. In 1925, construction began on the original 9-hole course under the technical supervision of Harry Sephard Colt (who also built Wentworth). It was later enlarged to 18 holes (6,173 m, par 72) under the control and design of the prestigious Tom Simpson (who was also responsible for such essential courses as Turnberry, Muirfield and Ballybunion). Malaga native Miguel Ángel Jimênez holds the course record with 63 strokes, set during the 1999 PGA Turespaña Masters, which he won. Vijai Sing won this course at the 1992 Turespaña Masters. Dunes, palm trees, mimosas, eucalyptus and pines skirt the course. Two holes run along the edge of the sea.
