Valderrama is a very special golf club and course, mainly because it is a competition course so when you go there and play a single round of golf you should be ready to face a very hard challenge. I found it a very difficult course, even though I played great golf that single day I played there. But if you do not know well this course, a perfect driver in the middle of the fairway could lead to a terrifying shot to Green, or a perfect iron shot right to the pin that was almost an eagle could be the beginning of tragedy endinng in a double bogey, as hapenned to me on hole 10, for example, with a ball at the pin back spinning to almost the lake 90 meters away from the Green.

If you go to Valderrama assuming that such things might happen to you, you Will have a memorable golf round.
Just walking those fairways or those roughs below the cork oak forest is a great pleasure. Just seeing the ball roll on the green as if it is chased by the devol is a great pleasure. Impossible not to face, across a whole golf round, at least a couple of terrifying puts where you have not a clue of the fall or the speed you need to apply (but if you did good, a great pleasure again). Same thing about unexpected shots you will need to play using all your imagination (over that huge tree, around it, below that, driving from tee aiming directly over a forest like in hole 18, taking 1 or even 2 mor clubs preparing your self for a great back spin, using that slope for a chip, …). All this things Will happen to you so score probably Will not be good, but since you have tried out so many wier things, at least one or two Will work out and you Will remember them for long.

The pleasure will last for long also if you watch pro tournaments on tv. It is really different to watch on tv a shot you have tried out, that one you have not. This happened to me, for example, on the second shot of hole 2. Saw many players play over the oak tree in the middle of the fairway (Rahm, Westwood). Do not even think about trying it. Or a short approach to the narrow slopy green on hole 4 … Very tense! The bunker on the left just seems to call your ball!

It is expensive to play here, it is not easy to find a tee time available, you Will score a horrible result and some holes you Will feel that almost you did not play it (from rough to rough, then 2 approaches, and so on …), but nevertheless that, it is a fantastic experience.

Your hospitality towards me as former marchal and celebrating my 80th birthday takes first price followed by the maintenace of the course.
Nothing much to improve - if you cannot invent or introduce a lightweight golfcar that can be used on next rainy day we visit Valderrama.
Recencion av Valderrama av Göran Leijerstam
The course was played March 23 2005

Jag har i 20 år vintertid spelat på olika golfbanor på Costa del Sol med utgångspunkt från Estepona - främst Club de Golf La Canada men även Valle Romano, Los Arqueros, Dona Julia, Los Naranjos, m fl. I år återvände jag till den bana jag och min hustru började spela på redan 1999 och spelar nu därför varje vecka med ett trevligt skandinavisk gäng åter på Estepona Golf.
Men den bana som gjort starkast intryck på mig var onekligen och kanske inte helt överraskande att jag fick ett erbjudande att spela Valderrama för en högst rimlig kostnad beroende på att jag var marchal på Volvo Masters där 2004. Samtliga marchals fick nämligen bl a en bonuscheck på 225 E vilket gjorde det överkomligt även för ickemiljonärer.
Erbjudandet kunde dock utnyttjas först året efter men då också för bäste gamle tennis- och golfvännen Rolf på besök från Paris då jag fyllde 80, vilket klubben skall ha särskilt erkännande och tack för.
Banan låg dessutom helt nära min dåvarande hemmaklubb La Canada dvs ca 25 km sydväst om vår spanska hemvist Estepona i Malagaprovinsen dvs mitt i det spanska himmelriket av fantastiska golfbanor.
Valderrama banan är ju klassisk mark för gamla golfare och är kanske närmast att jämställa med att spela St Andrews old course. I varje fall kände jag och vi det så. Tyvärr blev det bara 9 hål för Rolf då dagen bjöd på regn som inte tillät honom att använda nödvändig golfvagn på de sista 9 hålen. Klubbens med nödvändighet noggranna omsorg och omvårdnad om banan förstår man ju bl a med tanke på vad en besökare idag måste betala som normalgreenfee runt 300-400 Euro. Då måste banan vara i toppskick och det var den denna dag. Vi hade sällskap av en trevlig holländare som spelade på vår hcp-15-nivå och tom lite bättre, vilket inte var så svårt då jag inte kom upp till mer än 20 poäng men med 2 par,2 bogeys och 11 dubbelbogeys fick jag vara nöjd på denna bana som är svårspelad för medelgolfaren med svåra onduleringar på greenerna, nära nog aldrig någon platt liggande green utan nästan alltid, upplevde jag det som, upphöjda greener som krävde exakta och långa inspel där våra längder inte riktigt räckte till. Jag lyckades alltså inte heller med målet att gå under 100 – men det var nära.
Att vandra i de klassiska klubbhusmiljöerna och avsluta med en läcker middag i restaurangen var en härlig avslutning på en minnesvärd dag och en verklig 80-årsbonus som vi inte kan tacka Valderramas ledning tillräckligt för.
Du önskas välkommen till Solkusten, Valderrama, La Canada, Estepona Golf, Valle Romano m fl golfbanor jag gillar
hälsar

Yes, this is one of the best golf courses in Europe. Yes, Ryder Cup was here. Yes, Volvo Masters an Spanish Open were played here. And it is Members Club, and staff will make sure, you as a visitor will know it. Your 400€ fee will help them to keep it private. Add 60€ for buggy (actually, I would prefer a trolley here) and 60€ for mandatory forecaddie (nice local guy, happy to give him a tip), and the question is - is it value for money? I am not sure. Despite the course maintenance is top, the practice area is just ok (practice tees very dry and rough, full of sand) and for visitors with limited access only 45” prior to tee time. Regarding course design, sorry to say that, but with the exemption of 17. hole, most of the other holes are about the same: narrow landing area guarded by cork trees, and dogleg to another small green guarded by another cork trees. At the best, a cork tree in the middle of the fairway just in the dogleg. Everybody admires Valderrama, but for me it is a bit monotone layout. Check-marked on my bucket list, but just that.

This bucket list course was all that I expected and even more. Narrowest fairways I have played and immaculate condition.
The green fee is well above 400 so make sure to catch a good day. Also they only accept guests for one hour a day.

Great golfcourse with excellent maintenance. Buggy with GPS system. Forecaddie is mandatory. This actually means a caddie who walks with you and helps with distances and rakes the bunkers. We went around in a 4 ball in 4h10 minutes, even though we waited on quite a few holes.

No complaints about hospitality to guests. They were not as strict about their rules as I expected. We started practicing about an hour before our start.

Would recommend a visit to this great place at least once when you're in Marbella / Sotogrande area.

Fantastic golf course and club. Expensive but still one for any golfer's bucket list. Staff were very attentive and the compulsarry forecaddie with our group was very knowledgeable especially in reading the greens for us. We were the last group out on he visitor's t times and we felt we had the course to ourselves. Would I play it again... I'd love to but it's all about a willingness to pay that much for a round of golf. Was it worth it... for me, on the day... YES.

Valderrama was the perfect end of our trip. So majestic, well maintained and great service from staff.
We played from the back tees and thought it was really tough.
