La Morera Playa – perfect for golfers
With its stunning beachside Marbella location, the main focus at La Morera Playa is naturally upon the sea and the soft sandy shoreline that flows into dunes and tracts of coastal pine, but just inland from this very private spot are three superb golf courses that rank among the best clubs in Marbella. Put differently, at La Morera Playa golf is on your doorstep, literally just a few minutes away.
Río Real Golf
Inaugurated in 1965, this beautiful 18-hole (par 72) course designed by the legendary Javier Arana is not only one of the original golf venues of the Costa del Sol, but also a stunningly beautiful one. The layout makes the most of a fantastic setting to achieve this, as the course creates a parkland paradise in the midst of a broad valley before culminating right by the Mediterranean shoreline.
Here, just five minutes from Marbella’s town centre, you’re surrounded by greenery and within earshot of the waves in what is one of the most privileged and scenic golfing spots in the region. The course and surrounding suburb are named after the little Río Real river that flows alongside this, one of the most prestigious golf courses in Spain.
The accompanying clubhouse features an elegant lounge and restaurant, while the Rio Real Golf Hotel provides elegant golf-fronting accommodation just minutes from your home in La Morera Playa.
Situated a short distance further to the east, the Santa Clara Golf Club covers gently undulating terrain just inland from La Morera Playa in a meandering carpet of lush greenery. The 18-hole (par 71) course was designed by Enrique Canales Busquets with a great deal of respect for the environment, and as such features local plant species.
Santa Clara Golf offers something for all levels of players, with a golf academy and a clubhouse whose colonial style architecture and beautiful setting inspire many to come and dine or soak up the sun on the panoramic terrace – truly one of the prettiest spots in Marbella.
Marbella Golf Country Club
A classic example of golf course design by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior, it flows gently downhill towards the sea – amid spectacular views. The course is flanked by lush Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation, and features its own putting green, driving range, golf academy and also three tennis courts.
The clubhouse and its surroundings have an exclusive though welcoming air, with a lively membership that organises many events. The restaurant is first-class and the terrace takes in imposing views – all of this within a short few minutes of your luxury Marbella frontline beach apartment at La Morera Playa.
