El Paraiso Golf Course is situated at the Km167 turn off on the N340 motorway, between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona, less than one hours drive from Malaga Airport and within close driving proximity of Marbella and Puerto Banus.
El Paraiso was designed by Gary Player and opened in 1973. It was bought by its members in 1993 and has undergone many improvements and refinements over the years. It is an extremely beautiful course, both in its location and its layout, with mature groves of exotic plants and trees.

Set in a spectacular valley which rolls from the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja mountains towards the sea…there are several streams meandering throughout the course as well as 2 large lakes, which require a good drive to make safe landings on the greens.
Golf Buggies Please note El Paraiso Golf allows for 90° for golf buggies weather permitting.
The 6th is a dogleg left Par 5, with bunkers either side and one of the lakes to the right. The tiered green requires an accurate approach. Play is suitable for all abilities; with a good mix of long and short par 5’s, par 5’s that can be achieved in 2 and Par 3’s of varying distances.
