Home to the oldest thousand-year-old olive tree in Spain. This 18-hole golf course is a fascinating example of great landscape architecture that deserves all the attention it can get.

In 2016, new grass varieties were sown on the course, including Bermuda Celebration on the fairways and Agrostis V8 on the extended greens.

Note that there is a strict dress code in the practice and pitching areas, as well as in the driving field, restaurant and shop, which prohibits the wearing of jeans, flip flops, sleeveless shirts and the like.
