The One and Only
known to be one of the best golf courses all over the world and especially in spain. I think one of the first golf courses to be built in the Sotogrande area and it has been building up its reputation for the last 40 years. The golf course itself is a work of art and you must play really well to be able to score well on this track. The course is surrounded by trees and houses and there are some stunning and quite difficult holes like number 7, where your first is already difficult, but you cannot really miss the green as there are bunkers on the left and water on the right side. The practice facility is amazing and its not a surprise its been used by the European tour as facility for Tour School for many years.
RTJ's first ever European course and it's still one of his finest. The fairways are wide and the rough has a tough of the Augusta about it. Stray from the short stuff though and you will find plenty of cork, pine, Palm and oak trees in your way. Immaculately presented, remarkable greens and nicely manicured bunkering. A must play.
Great course. One of my favorites in Spain. Big greens, high trees and deep bunkers. Can be challenging, but in a good way. Very classy golf club.
First RTJ Course in Europe
Sonogram de was the first European course designed by Robert Trent. Jones Snr and ever since it opened it has consistently been voted one of the best on the continent. Always in immaculate condition, it weaves between pine, oaks, eucalyptus, palms and cork trees to provide a fitting venue for a very important international amateur team event called the Sherry Cup.

Florida type course
A very nice course designed by Robert Trent Jones. The greens and parts of the course where a little scrubby today. A lot of padges and bruces. The area is very Florida like with nice open holes with plenty of water on some parkfeeling on others. Well worth a visit. A little bit cheep on the goodiebag. One 50cl bottle of water was included. A tip, look to your next door neighbours Valderrama and La Reserva for example. A bit more generus.
Gerne mal wieder trotz hoher Greenfee
Platz in top Zustand. Der Anfang ist noch relativ eintönig. Später folgen aber spektakuläre und nicht einfache Löcher. Charakteristisch sind die vielen tiefen Bunker sowie eine stattliche Anzahl Doglegs. Aufgrund des vielen Wassers auf den zweiten Neun gefällt er mir optisch besser als La Reserva. Schwer gerated, aber effektiv fair zu spielen aufgrund breiter Fairways.
Sotogrande ist eine Reise wert. Top Platz und hammer Umgebung. Immer in top Zustand und extrem schnellen Greens
Greens are excellent and the course great. The green fee is too expensive but this course is a must to play in Spain
Absoluter Championship Golfplatz. Angenehm und fair zu spielen.
Ein berühmter Name
Sehr bekannter Club, aber der grosse Name hält meines Erachtens nicht, was er verspricht. Platz, Clubhaus, Service usw. sind zwar durchaus ganz hervorragend, aber die Weltklasse, die man hinter dem Namen Sotogrande erwartet, blieb für mich aus.
