This relatively new parkland was designed by legendary Spaniard Jose Maria Olazabal – who hails from the other end of the country in the Basque country – in 1991.
It is a 7,181-yard course built to host elite golfers, and it did just that in 2004 when the World Cup came to the capital of Andalusia. Paul Casey and Luke Donald were the winners, and the Open de Espana followed to Sevilla four years later.
It covers of 61 hectares populated by 10,000 trees but featuring wide fairways. In addition to its length the course is also protected by 90 bunkers and nine lakes comprising three hectares.
The relatively small, undulating greens – which were renovated in 2012 and 2013 – add a final challenge on every hole.
Renowned for its conditioning, this gently undulating parkland course is a classy modern venue.
