An activity of high precision and calculation, golf is the sort of a true gentleman. Golf players exude elegance and refinement when playing, and the courses they play at must be up to par. Only the very best design will make the most out of every play, and only the most exclusive of facilities will be adequate for the true golf connoisseurs.
Regarded as the best golf course In Europe, and maybe even the world, the Real Club Valderrama was founded in 1985 by Robert Trent-Jones Senior, being the redesigned and renewed version of the former Las Aves golf course. The new and improved course has housed the Volvo Masters Tournament (1988-2009), the 32nd Ryder Cup in 1997 and hosted the World-Golf Championships-American Express Championship in 1999 and 2000.

Located in Sotogrande, to the south of Spain, the #1 golf course in Spain and Europe is designed to perfection, demanding the utmost ability and precise calculations.
