What we say
Parador Malaga Golf is the Costa del Sol's oldest golf course having opened in 1925 and been designed by Scot Tom Simpson, who also had a hand in Turnberry and Muirfield. The golf course, which has both links and parkland characteristics, hosted the Turespana Masters in 1992 and 1999 and its bunkers, lakes and lagoons set up a stiff test. Several tree-line fairways are home to vivid flocks of parakeets.

I played this course last year, when I felt an interesting layout was spoilt by the tees, fairways and greens being in rather poor condition. There was, however a lot of work being done. The reason? The course had been chosen to host the 2010 Andalusian Open. The result? A superb golf course where the fairways are as good as they get in Southern Spain, greens which are silky smooth and totally consistent, and, generally speaking a course which now represents one of the best golfing experiences in this part of the world. It's still a shame about the aircraft noise, though!
Uninteresting with poor facilities!
Ideal for Location within Hotel Grounds
Very Dissapointing. Members were urging us to voice our complaints to help them get work done. The course was nicely laid out with some narrow fairways through trees and some open treeless ones by the sea. but fairways were in poor condition, greens were a disgrace. no sand in bunkers and worn tees. The only interesting thing was the huge Parrott nests and literally hundreds of little green parrotts. A bit noisy too as the planes took off over head and looked as if you could hit one with a good wedge shot. AVOID THIS SPANISH LEMON
