One of the most spectacular courses on the Costa del Sol, set in the Benahavis mountains behind San Pedro. Excellent condition but very tough. Every golfer should play it at least once in their lives. Located in the hills between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona, Monte Mayor was designed by Malaga native Pepe Gancedo, whose philosophy is - why move the earth when a golf hole should follow the natural contours. Possibly the Costa del Sol's most spectacular course, with breathtaking views on every hole, Monte Mayor features a challenging layout over mountainous terrain for the bold and the accurate. The course meanders through a mountain valley, with ravines and gullies, winding streams, raised tees and plateaued fairways all part of the course. The greens are excellent. As there are many steep gradients, golf fees include the use of a buggy. All in all, Monte Mayor is a most enjoyable course to play, and the club house is cosy and very popular. It's well worth the short trip into the countryside to play this course.
