What the club says: This world famous championship course was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Snr. and played host to the Ryder Cup in 1997. It was listed as the number one in Spain by Golf Digest Magazine (USA) in 2005 and is filled with prestige. Each hole has six tees and was made with all handicappers in mind but the crosswinds make it tough to conquer from any of the tees. It is kept in immaculate condition and provides a challenging round every time. The par five 17th is the signature hole as it features strategically placed bunkers behind a green that slopes forwards to an emerald lake. It has been the scene of many a title won and lost.

This is without doubt one of the best courses I have ever played on. Absolutely fantastic course and facilities. The condition was superb and it was the perfect challenge for me. Obviously the price is high but it is more than worth the money and everything was outstanding. Staff were excellent and the facilities were second to none. More than lives up to its name!

Absolutely the best golf course i've played in my life, since you see the complex entrance you knows that something special is going to happen and it is, the course is the most beautifull and well maintained course i've seen, greens are impecable, the club house restaurant is a must to visit when you are there and the staffis very polite and nice. Definitely is a golf course that every golfer should play.

A tough course due to the narrow fairways lined by cork trees. It's in the top 100 golf courses in the world and worthy of its reputation.

Whilst serving with the RAF in Gibraltar, I was lucky enough to get the chance to play this course for free. This came about after working at the Volvo Masters tournament as a scorer in 2001.
I have obviously rated value for money as excellent because I never had to fork out the 275 Euros, but the area of Sotogrande has it's fair share of wealthy club swishers. Hence the green fee deters the ordinary chap who fancies a few rounds of San Miguel in the 19th.
Overall the course was a delight to play, the seventeenth destroyed me and I can confirm the water level in the lake was higher after I dumped most of my balls in it! Had the camera tower been behind the 11th hole as it was on the day of the Masters, I may have got away with my shot through the green, and the spectators would have helped by treading down some of the rough I found on the edge of the fairways. These pro's have it easy you know!
Something else I noticed as well, nobody was following me round filling in any left divot holes with green sand .....Needless to say, I repaired all mine myself.

I played this course in the mid seventies when it was known as Sototgrande New and I can remember syaing at the time that if I was only allowed to play one course for the rest of my life, then this would be it.

No course is worth 275 euros and it is because of the new money which has allowed the game to prosper , has had this detrimental effect on green fees.

Sotogrande old is also an excellent course and was already well established.

Valderrama is absolute golfing Nirvana. After a friendly welcome and a light lunch, practice balls are prepered for you on the range while the caddymaster fits your clubs on to the cart/trolley. When you get to the pratice putting green you will be astounded by the texture and speed of the grass, you really have to see it to believe it.
Wih tight fairways overhung by plentiful cork oaks and well guarded greens that are undulating and very,very fast, valderrama is a very stern test. From the yellow tees the course is not at all long but accuracy and distance control are vital to avoid large numbers. Hit to the wrong part of the green and 3 putts could ba a good result.
Every hole is a joy to behold, scenic beauty, tremendous design and the best course manicuring outside of North America, this course is not cheap at 275 euros, but i for one feel it is worth every penny. I dont expect to ever play a better golf course.
