Cabopino Golf Marbella

 

Cabopino Golf



Cabopino golf is located between Fuengirola and Marbella opposite the beautiful Cabopino marina and just five minutes drive from the main coastal highway of the Costa del Golf.

The course  was inaugurated in April 2001 and offers an 18 hole – Par 71 course designed by Spanish architect Juan Ligues. He made good use of the contours, and the existing pine forest which where grew in the area long before the course arrived.

Cabopino golf is quite tight in places and quite short and not overly difficult to play. If you are wild hitter then be prepared to lose a lot of balls along your round. It is a good test of your golfing skills so thoughtful and patient play will pay dividends.

Most of the greens are quite large, interesting, each one different to the last. The course is a challenge for players of all handicaps consisting of three par-3s, two par-5s and thirteen par-4s. The first two Par 4 holes are good warm up holes, nothing special , then you reach the extraordinary third hole with its tee box some 200 meters above the fairway and green below. The hole is quite spectacular and will last long in your memory. The tight fairway below sits between two hilly slopes, the green is protected by a large bunker at the front with an old olive tree to keep it company and strategically placed to guard the large elevated green.

The most difficult hole on the course is the 5th, not long at 378 meters as straight drive is a must here as the whole right side is out of bounds, the second shot then has to be weaved between a tight gap into the open clearing where the green is located. A bold drive here will reap rewards.


Unusually you have to wait until the 12th hole to play your first par 5, an interesting hole which requires a good uphill drive to be placed well for your second over the lake. An accurate approach shot is required to take out the surrounding bunkers and pine trees which guard the green very well if you are to make par.

One of most picturesque holes is the Par 3 – 13th with another elevated tee leading down to a green guarded by a large lake on the right side and a section of the front which really gives you something to think about with your tee shot.

The clubhouse sits atop a hill overlooking the course and sea. It houses a very nice restaurant which offers an excellent lunch and drinks at very reasonable prices.

You will not be short of finding a large selection of budget and luxury golfer friendly hotels close by If you thinking of planning a golf package holiday break to the Costa del Sol then Cabopino Golf is well worth adding to your itinerary as a good value all round golf course.

Cabopoino golf has become a firm favourite in the last few years with visiting golfing groups due its enviable position between Fuengirola and Marbella and the fact that Cabopino golf offers great value golf at anytime of the year.
