What the club says: El Chaparral is an 18 hole golf course which sweeps along the undulating coastline of Mijas Costa, approximately 20 minutes drive from Malaga. Spanish architect Pepe Gancedo who also created two other courses in the area designed this course to perfection.

The course and Clubhouse are unique on the Costa del Sol. Practically every hole overlooks the sea, and the nature of the terrain and hundreds of pine forests means that no two holes are alike. There are six par 3s, six par 4s and six par 5s and is a superb and challenging course to play.

Everything about this gem of a course is worth visiting. It never gives in and will hide your ball if you blink. One of the best I’ve played returning year after year.

We played last week, It was a great surprise for me to see the very positive improvement of the course and we really enjoyed the course. Nice bar terrace with a nice sea views.

Overrated

Dreadful tees and greens, way overpriced mickey mouse golf course.
I've never been so disappointed on a golf holiday.

Disappointing for the price

Whilst I can appreciate that we played the course during high season I was very disappointed with the condition of the Greens and tees, the former being very scuffed up and the latter looking like a cheap municipal course. An interesting layout, but no particularly memorable holes when compared against other nearby courses.

Stunning, stunning course

What a course. Wet at the start of the day (like all Spanish courses) but so many holes where you stand on the teen at think "wow". You need a buggy.

Spectacular!

Not for the faint hearted, or those who want straight forward wyswyg courses. Spectacular views, wonderful setting and some amazing holes. Though also with some blind shots that might frustrate some. Speaking as a high handicapper, glad to have played it, but perhaps best suited to max hcaps of 22 or so ? After the round, sitting on terrace for food and drink is a lovely spot.

Good for the time of the year

The course was quite soft and muddy in some places due to the soggy winter we have had but perfectly playable. Compared to some of the other mud-holes around it is a good winter course due to the good drainage. The greens had just been heavily cored so putting was difficult but this should pay dividents come spring and summer. Overall although it is a short and forgiving course it makes you think about your shots and the hazards can ruin your scorecard if you're unlucky or not careful. Beer and welcome at the clubhouse are always great.
