Lauro Golf Resort has its origins at the center of a natural environment and has nowadays 27 holes to be combined 9 plus 9.
From the beginning the design of the complex is based on respect for the environment that surrounds it, not only maintaining every centennial holm oak but also planting thousands of new trees, most of them Andalusian indigenous species.
These interesting Costa del Sol golf courses where designed by Falco Nardi who made it technical but not difficult , concentration and the right choice of club will let you get a good score in any of the fifty competitions that Lauro hold each year.
The enlargement of the course, holes 18 to 27 and designed by Mariano Benitez. also requires concentration and cleverness, the course can be played with out a buggy as it is mostly flat although there are two holes at the foot of the mountain which offer exceptional views over the Guadalhorce Valley and Mediterranean sea.
Lauro Golf Club House is set in a cortijo of over two hundred years called “El Paredón”. According to people from the area, the cortijo was a hide out for bandits, amongst them one called “Pasoslargos”.

Easy and short hole where getting the par is not usually difficult.
Hole 3 “Ordóñez”, par 4, 325 meters Starting tee in a high place, with spectacular views and “out” on the left. The green is highly complicated.

Hole 6 “Vázquez”, par 4, 395 meters Quite a long hole in descending way with a hazard on the right. It seems easier than it is.
Hole 7 “Manolete”, par 5, 530 meters Very pronounced dog-leg on the left. It is a very long hole that golfers can shorten, but taking quite a lot of risks.
Hole 8 “Ortega, par 4, 303 meters Although it is a short and straight hole, it is well protected with out bounds on the left and on the right.
