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.
