Voted the number one course in Europe by Golfing World, Valderrama enjoys lush green fairways and immaculate greens.
The fairways are fairly flat and tree-lined, with elevated greens well protected bunkers - the 6th hole alone is surrounded by six! and water affects three holes - the 5th, 11th, and 17th.
As the venue for the prestigious World Cup in 1999 and 2000, and the Ryder Cup in 1997 and the Volvo Masters (1988-96 and 2002) Valderrama has seen the top golfers in the world on its fairways.
The visitors can play from 12:00 midday to 2pm every day, but it is sometimes better to book tee times for this course weeks in advance.
The restaurant is open to visitors Thursday and Friday evenings, and Sunday lunch. Worth a look is the golfing museum of priceless golfing memorabilia
