Take on three of Spain's finest golf courses with this stay-and-play package designed to create lifelong memories

At the southern tip of Europe, Sotogrande has been one of Europe’s most desirable and distinctive year-round destination for decades. 

Fusing Andalusian culture and history with a world-class lifestyle, Sotogrande stretches from the Mediterranean Sea into the foothills of the Sierra Almenara.  

The magic of Sotogrande lies in its unique mix of tranquillity, elegance, action, style and serenity, set in a spectacular sea-front location to forge treasured memories. 

Scattered among its beaches, marinas, cork forests, rivers, and mountains are world-class golf facilities at Valderrama, Sotogrande, La Reserva – and now you can enjoy all three in the perfect sunshine getaway.  

The golf courses

Valderrama

Valderrama needs little introduction. The host of the first ever Ryder Cup on continental Europe in 1997, Valderrama has also held European Tour events regularly since the 1980s, as well as two World Golf Championships. Valderrama has an aura, a status and a mystique that only a few courses around the world possess.

Sotogrande Golf

Sotogrande put Andalusia on the map as a golf destination when the revered Robert Trent Jones opened it in 1964. It has hosted the Spanish Open, with Roberto de Vicenzo winning a year before he became the oldest player to win The Open, while Jose Maria Olazabal won the 1983 Spanish Amateur here four years before Seve Ballesteros – then World No 2 and at his peak – won the Spanish Professional Championship.

La Reserva is one of Spain’s strongest modern courses and can hold its own among the prestigious elite. La Reserva is always in immaculate condition and especially renowned for its expansive views and notable for offering a playable challenge.

Where you’ll stay

The five-star SO/ Sotogrande is the newest addition to the hotel options in the area and is the place to be seen, offering guests a stylish and luxurious setting for their stay and with the very best service, gastronomy and wellness, the SO/ Sotogrande is breaking the mould for high-end accommodation.

SO Sotogrande hotel

There are 152 rooms and suites, featuring artistic touches and the very best interior design, as well as stunning landscaped gardens and wonderful views to provide a haven for relaxation thanks to the state-of-the-art SO/ Spa and Wellness area.

It is also a foodies’ paradise with seven restaurants and bars offering innovative culinary delights in a very cool atmosphere. 

What else is there to do?

Sotogrande is one of Europe’s premier sporting destinations. Whether it is yachting, golf, watersports, horse riding, cycling, tennis or polo that light your fire, all are available and celebrated here. For polo lovers, Sotogrande boasts more than 25 annual tournaments as well as multiple equestrian centres and stables alive with activity all year round. 

For sailors, a fully developed yacht harbour with 1,400 berths and a 70-metre docking capacity make Sotogrande’s marina a hive of sailing activity.

There are many beaches in and nearby this magnificent destination. Closest are the Playa Sotogrande with the Trocadero Beach Club and the Playa Paseo del Mar with the El Octogono Beach Club and watersports centre. However, if you are looking for something more isolated, the quiet long Playa Guadalquiton is just west of the Sotogrande community. 

How to get to Sotogrande

Sotogrande is easily accessible from most European cities and is only an hour and 15 minutes’ drive from Malaga airport. Alternatively, Gibraltar airport is just 25 minutes away, while Jerez and Seville are an hour and 15 minutes and two hours respectively.

The east of the resort lies at the gateway to the Costa del Sol, with Marbella a 30-minute drive, and the Costa de la Luz to the west, with its vast, wild beaches near Tarifa such as Bolonia and Zahara de los Atunes. Morocco is also just 35 minutes away by ferry from Tarifa to Tangier.
