Los Flamingos Golf Resort on the Costa del Sol

The Los Flamingos golf resort consists of 3 golf courses, 2 championship ones Los Flamingos, and Alferini, and the shorter Tramores course.

Located just 20 minutes from the town centre of Marbella and 30 minutes from Gibraltar, Los Flamingos Golf Resort is conveniently located just 15 minutes from the famous restor of Marbella and offers very good value golf.

The 2010 LPGAs tour held the Spanish Open at the Flamingos resorts and golf courses.  Other significant tournaments have been held there as well such as the European Senior Finals and the Daily Telegraph European Seniors Match Play championships.

Los Flamingos is now one of the big players when it comes to golf on the Costa del Sol.

Great pains and have been taken to conserve the existing trees and shrubs and other plants that were removed were replanted after the development was finalised. By the time that the course officially opened in 2001, the greens and fairways had a grown-in look that made them seem as if they had always been there.

Los Flamingos is undoubtedly one of the top golf resorts on the Costa del Sol and a great choice when it comes to including a round or two when planing a golf package trip to Spain.

Coming in at around 5600 meters it is a medium length course.  The water hazards that are in the first nine holes tend to cause some golfers problems since they have to tee off over water. Players also have to contend with some well designed but slightly cramped holes which employ unusual but interesting layouts.

The last nine holes of the course you will find a bit more spacious.  Certainly if you enjoy teeing off across the lake than this is the course for you. Due to the precision needed in order to successfully complete some of these holes, many golfers have been challenged by the lack of space which makes it both interesting and challenging at the same time.

With views of the sea as well as the adjacent lakes in the mountains in the background there are certainly lots of picturesque views to be enjoyed during the round.

Some of the holes on the back nine are rather steep in certain places so it is advisable to hire a golf buggy , unless you are accustomed to walking on some steep inclines.

An after round drink is advisable as the club house and bar area is located on the grounds of the stunning Luxury Villa Padierna Hotel, built in the style of an Italian mansion the hotel is visible from all over the courses and makes for a unique and unforgettable backdrop to the resort.
