Luxury Golf at it’s Finest
Villa La Sorpresa is luxury accommodation with Marbella golf courses at your fingertips.
Your stay will take place at El Madroñal, an exclusive residential estate tucked away in the hills near Benehavis. You could say that this is Spain’s own Hollywood Hills – with an abundance of secluded luxury villas hidden in plain sight.
El Madroñal offers the perfect blend of modern luxury and country chic, with beautiful mountain scenery. All while enjoying a close proximity to Marbella, Puerto Banús and a number of other cosmopolitan spots.
Golf in the Marbella area is always a favourite activity. Whether you’re going for 9 or 18 holes, its always great to feel a sense of accomplishment out in the sunshine. If you want some alone time, a round with friends, or if you’re holidaying with teenagers, golf is the answer.
While El Madroñal does not offer golf as an amenity, we are very proud to be naturally green and lush! The natural surroundings, we believe, add to the privacy and exclusivity of El Madroñal villas. There are, however, many first-class courses within easy reach of your luxury base at Villa La Sorpresa.
Let’s start close to home.
The nearest available course is Los Arqueros, just a five-minute drive down the Ronda road. The golf legend Seve Ballesteros designed this course. It was his first one ever! Los Arqueros offers everything you could want from a modern golf club. Also worth a visit is the Guadalmina Golf Club. It has a gorgeous park landscape which straddles both sides of the coastal A7 road.
What about the top golf courses in the Marbella area?
About 15 minutes away by car, you will find the Golf Valley. Two leading clubs dominate this area with their lush greenery. Las Brisas and Los Naranjos. A third top contender in the valley is the Aloha Golf Club. All three clubs have hosted major international tournaments.
If you are keen to explore a little further for world renowned clubs, there are two more within a 20-minute drive. Both offer fantastic golfing experiences. As one of the earliest golf clubs in Marbella, Río Real occupies a stunning location. The course flows through a verdant valley towards sandy beaches. Then, for a slightly dramatic setting, visit Los Flamingos course. It is surrounded by the palatial-style Villa Padierna resort. Here you are met with an Italian vibe, having been designed to resemble the Tuscan countryside.
For interest’s sake, here are the three Costa del Sol golf courses which feature in the world’s top 10!
3rd best in the world – Real Club de Golf Sotogrande
5th best in the world – Finca Cortesin Golf Resort
6th best in the world – Real Club de Golf Las Brisas
With so much top quality golf right at your fingertips, staying at a villa like La Sorpresa is an ideal option for those who wish to enjoy some world class golf on the Costa del Sol.
