Tucked away in the remarkably quiet and scenic Andalucian countryside between San Pedro and Estepona, within very close proximity of the beach, is the exclusive golfing complex Atalaya Park Golf and Country Club… an absolute haven for nature and sport lovers and of course the avid golfer searching out an unforgettable experience.
The 18 hole par 72 Old Course was originally designed by Bernard Von Limburger and opened in 1968. It underwent considerable renovations and attained sufficiently high standards to be made the general headquarters of the P.G.A. and many annual P.G.A. Meetings and conferences are now regularly held there
Atalaya Park Old Golf Course (Spain)
At 6142m in length, this tree- lined parkland type course sports wide fairways, fast elevated greens and several water hazards. There is no major undulation in the first part of the course but the second half winds slightly higher up into the foothills of the surrounding hills.
The Pro Shop won’t disappoint the most avid golfer and the restaurant, snack bar and Ryder Cup bar all offer superb comfort for after game relaxation and socializing with breathtaking views of the Rock of Gibraltar, the African coastline and the sparkling Mediterranean.
The 18 hole New Course was designed by Paul Krings and opened in 1992 and according to the experts is a genuine test even for established players, considerably more challenging than it’s sister the Old Course. It begins deceptively straightforward around the flat fairways of the Old Course and then winds up into more difficult hilly terrain before wandering down again to the lower levels of the Old Course.
The narrow sloping fairways and several lakes of the New Course will test all player’s drive and ball placement skills. The Bermuda fairways are lined with fragrant wildflowers and gorse bushes and much of the New Course looks back onto the dramatic outline of the La Concha mountains.
The chalet style clubhouse is a welcome site on the home run of the 18th hole and offers luxurious changing and showering facilities as well as a wonderful terraced bar and restaurant where top local and international cuisine can be sampled.
