Atalaya Park Golf Resort

Atalaya Park Golf  Resort



The Atalaya Park Golf Resort opened in 1968 and is home to two top notch golf courses, the excellent old course and its baby sister, the new course. Atalaya Golf is one of the more popular golf  resorts on the Costa del Sol.

Located just 15 minutes from Marbella, Atalaya is nestled among the eucalyptus trees, palm trees, and beautiful azaleas that characterised it this general area. This course has beautiful scenic views with the background facing La Concha Peak in the Sierra Blanca Mountains.

Of the two courses offered at Atalaya, certainly the more favourable of the two is the old course. It features flower lined fairways with lush and well-irrigated greens.   Although some consider it to be limited in some ways, it is more than adequate for the typical golfer since it provides wide fairways that will aid in not losing one’s ball.  The convoluted fairways may be complex for some golfers but most people enjoy the character and design of the old  course.



The new course which is a bit smaller than the old course and offers very good value golf.  The new course was designed by Paul Krings in 1992 with the goal of making a parkland style course that would appeal to everyone while at the same time being more challenging than the old course.

The new course features sloping fairways and several lakes and other water features to make it  more complex and challenging than the old.  The turf used is Bermuda and the fairways are lined with beautiful flowers that bloom at different times of the year.

The flower lined fairways along with the views of the La Concha mountains in the background make for an unforgettable golfing location.

The resort also offers a top International Golf Academy for budding amateurs who are seeking additional instruction in the game and classes are available in a variety of languages.

The friendly atmosphere along with the recently  refurbished chalet club house contributes to the overall style of the place.

The resort is home to the popular 4 star Hotel Atalaya Park which is conveniently situated two minutes walk from the club house and courses. It is located just a five minute drive from Marbella and  the renowned Puerto Banus marina. If you prefer to stay close to the centre of Marbella there are a number of amazing luxury hotels to choose from.

The old course at the Atalaya Golf club is undoubtedly one of the finest parkland courses on the Costa del Sol, golf holidays in Spain would not be the same without a round of golf at this stunning resort.
