Guadalmina South Course is one of the oldest in the region and is renowned for its difficulty. Fairways are narrow and well-protected by old trees which require more straight shots, which make the course more suitable for experienced players.
The North Course is shorter and hillier than the South Course and has more water obstacles. The course requires straight drives down the middle of the fairways as many of the water hazards are hidden in the rough!
