Designed by Antonio Garcia Garrido, this course offers distracting views over the Mediterranean. The par 3 sixth hole is located on the highest point of the course and is very challenging.
Situated just east of Marbella town on the original N-340 coast road, Santa Maria is one of the Costa del Sol's top courses. The course has always been presented in top condition. Originally 9 holes, the course has now been expanded to the full 18, although it is impossible to tell which holes are the new ones!
