Take a trip to the south coast of Spain, and find out for yourself why people are raving about La Reserva.
La Reserva de Sotogrande is an impeccably laid out golf course. The flowing fairways roll on towards the large greens, with a simple but elegant splash of water features and trees lining the way as you go. The Guadiaro River flows through the course, merely flowing down the flanks of holes for the most part. The water runs through La Reserva in such a way to give a splendid tranquil feel to the course.
The course plays out at nearly 7400 yards from the furthest tees, a significant yardage that will prove testing to all players. The fairways are wide and the greens are big, so there is wiggle room for those feeling the distance. The course is built on the merging point of two valleys, giving some up-and-down hilly flow to play and ensuring each tee shot has a different challenge.
The signature hole at La Reserva de Sotogrande is the par four 17th, which has water running the entire way up the right hand side from tee to green. If you can take on the water and keep your ball dry enough to tell the tale, you will have the perfect angle to attack the pin. A classic who dares wins hole for match play, it can have a big say on how your round ends in this modern golfing classic.
