Santa Clara Golf is another one of those courses that you can really rack up a good stableford score, with the fairways nice and wide with large greens to hit.
It’s an unusual start to your round as you are faced with the 1,9,10 and 18th Fairways all in front of you when teeing off.
The first is a straight forward par 4 with a 3 wood to to put you with a 140 meters to hit a nice 9 iron in.
The holes do not really get to difficult until the 5 with a really tough par 4 but only because of the approach shot to the green which is really elevated and an undulation that if you over hit your shot you have very very tough putt back down which could see you off back down to where your approach came from!
Then you have a very tough and long par 3 to get to and if your a little left could find your back on the fairway of the previous hole and then a tough second shot back up to the green.
The par 5 8th hole at Santa Clara lets you really let rip with the drive and then if your brave enough have go out the narrowing fairway onto the very narrow green.
The Santa Clara course has some very nice water features on the course and the best for this I think is the par 4 12th hole, which whilst having one of the best views from an elevated tee shot, has the wonderful approach shot into the green, which has the small stream with its little walk over.
The finishing hole is really nice as well with a pond protecting the front of the green and the huge club house on the left hand side as you hit your last approach shots of the day.
Santa Clara has one of the most outstanding club houses on the Costa del Sol so make sure you go and celebrate your round with a pint on the terrace.
