History

Los Arqueros Golf and Country Club was opened in 1991. It was designed by Severiano Ballesteros (9 April 1957 – 7 May 2011) one of the greatest professional golf players of all time. In his lifetime Seve won an impressive 90 international tournaments including five major championships.
Seve wished to create a golf course that blended in with its environment while simultaneously offering the golfer a fascinating challenge. On completion, the course was everything that Seve desired. It is always kept in fantastic condition, the fairways are narrow and the greens are small. It is a golf course with bags of personality – just like its creator.

The Course

Keen golfers will be pleased to hear that Los Arqueros provides an interesting and perplexing par-71, 18 hole course with impeccable fairways. The course follows the fertile lie of the land and is designed specifically to blend into its natural surroundings as effortlessly as possible. Each hole was created to have its own intriguing personality and as such this course provides a great test. On one hand the golfer needs a good degree of technical accuracy, and on the other he has to be able to play intelligently. At any moment you need to be able to make decisions about which tee shots are appropriate to use, while simultaneously navigating a dog leg on a downhill slope. Holes 6, 8 and 13 are particularly challenging and you will need to combine a sense of cunning with a calculated strategy in order to finish the course and make your handicap.
