El Paraiso Golf Club »
Is located in Estepona, in the peaceful El Paraiso valley with the backdrop of the majestic ‘La Concha’ mountain to the north and the sparkling Mediterranean to the south, enjoying over 300 days of sunshine every year.
It was designed with great attention to detail by the South African professional golfer, Gary Player, in 1973. El Paraiso is one of the most established courses on the Costa del Sol, with the envious reputation of not only providing one of the best championship course layouts on the coast, which draws players back time and time again, but also being the friendliest international club too. New members, golf societies and visitors are welcome.
The designers laid out the course to take advantage of the slope of a hill which runs down to the sea. The course has fairways which are quite wide, but the roughs are dangerous traps. The water hazards play an important role, both for the beauty they add to the course and because of the dangerous streams lying hidden in the roughs.
The central holes of the course (the 13th and the 14th) are incredibly beautiful, with their large trees and lakes. The 6th hole is considered the best on the course. It is a dogleg left par-5 with a number of different holes to choose from. Probably the most difficult hole is the 7th, with its green guarded by two enormous bunkers. Whether you are a low handicap or just want to enjoy a round of golf on your holiday, the course offers something for all ages and abilities, as well as exciting challenges.
El Paraiso presents generous easy walking fairways set amongst palms and pines, oleanders and olives with meandering streams and two magnificent lakes. The setting is unparalleled: lush fairways are punctuated by meandering streams, flanked by palm trees and an abundance of exotic fauna, including oleander, jacaranda and mimosas, as well as lakes that provide a home for a number of water birds.
The clubhouse sits in the heart of the course, looking onto the 18th green. It was created out of a number of country “casitas”, offering a rustic and friendly environment. The restaurant area comprises of a beautiful terrace overlooking the 18th hole, the spikes bar and an inside dining room, catering for all events Everything on our menu is freshly prepared using great produce and is beautifully presented by our experienced chefs.
