Las Brisas Golf, A Luxury Enclave in Nueva Andalucía, Marbella

Property news

 

As the largest and one of the most luxurious residential areas in Marbella, Nueva Andalucía is made up of different parts, each of which is dominated by one of the golf courses that together make up the Golf Valley at the heart of Nueva Andalucía.

The most exclusive of these is the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas, a prestigious championship course with gorgeous subtropical greenery originally designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Senior and launched by José Banús in 1968. The landscaping is by the hand of Englishman Gerald Haggan, who created a virtual botanical garden with Cape Chestnut trees, Indian Laurel, Mysore Ficus, Green Ash from Mexico, Whistling Pine from Australia and of course indigenous species.

It is this scenic beauty that the surrounding properties overlook and which accompanies you as you play this 18-hole, par 72 course with a maximum of 6.130 metres that is ranked among the top-100 venues of the game in Europe. Ten lakes fed by two streams form part of the obstacles that makes this a challenging yet highly rewarding course, which hosted its inaugural competition in 1970 in the form of the Amateur Spanish Open. In 1973, the World Golf Cup was added to this, as the course grew in international stature, and many more prestigious competitions followed.

Las Brisas as a place to live

Luxurious villas and apartment complexes set within their own greenery adjacent to the meandering course, which occupies a large part of the Nueva Andalucía valley, began to flank Las Brisas and make it a suburb as well as a mecca for golf, and this prompted the expansion of the clubhouse and the issue of 1.320 member shares.

Added to over the years and recently modernised, the clubhouse of the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas is now a five-star facility with impressive styling and amenities that include an elegant lounge and bar area, The Terrace fine dining restaurant, conference and events rooms, pro and caddy shop, as well as professional coaching and regular social events.

It is fair to say that the clubhouse of Las Brisas Golf is the social hub of the area, and the 1.300 members from over 30 different countries form an active membership that uses the club to relax, socialise, network and indulge in their favourite pastime. For them and for others, the golf course of Las Brisas provides a wonderful focal point in what has become one of the exclusive and appealing residential areas not just in Nueva Andalucía, but all of Marbella.
