Parador Malaga Golf course is Spain’s oldest and was opened in 1925 by the Royal family. It is a slightly longer than most average courses, running 6204m in total. Designed by Scottish architect Tom Simpson who is acclaimed for his courses at Turnberry and Muirfield, the Parador is a beautiful, immaculately maintained course that has been host to several major competitions over the years.
Originally it consisted of 18 holes, but a further 9 were added in an interesting link style in October 2004 making it more suitable for players of all abilities. Many players regularly find that the winds coming in off the sea can make a real challenge of some of the holes. Pines, olives, palms and huge flowering hedges, not only add to the scenery but also provide cover for the resident flocks of parakeets often seen flying overhead.
