Los Naranjos Golf Club is located in the famous “Golf Valley” of Marbella and just a few minutes from Puerto Banus, considered one of the best golf courses in Spain, was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr and inaugurated in 1977 and renewed in the summer of 2009. Los Naranjos Golf Course is a very mature golf course and as with many Trent Jones designs there are long terraced tees.

The main feature of the course is how the front nine holes differ from the back nine and some say playing here is like playing two different golf courses, the greens are spacious and slightly undulated the tees are long and have four markers: red, yellow, white and black with course lengths starting from 5.131 metres and reaching 6.532 metres at its longest; fragrant orange trees are characteristic of the well maintained golf course at Los Naranjos.

The golf course is not that difficult but provides a good test of golf for all standards. There is a very good mixture of holes that will always keep you fascinated and beware the water holes just when you think you are scoring well. The finishing hole is a par 5 and arguably the most difficult hole on Los Naranjos Golf Course, a good drive will leave the better golfer a shot to the green over the pond with the entire clubhouse watching from the large terrace! For those who choose to lay up even the simplest chip is under scrutiny from the watching audience of members and guests, one of whom is often Sir Sean Connery.
