Only seven years old and designed by Cabell Robinson La Reserva Golf Club is the newest course in Sotogrande. And at 7,400 yards off the back tees it reflects the way the advance in ball and club technology has demanded ever longer hole designs.
And with many generously wide the fairways the bigger hitters are encouraged to open their shoulders.
However La Reserva Golf Club is still very much a second shot course as many of the greens are large and offering a wide variety of pin positions. Accuracy into the flags is therefore important otherwise three putting can be a common occurrence.
The course is built in two valleys which join in a ‘Y’ shape and although water features on six of the holes it does not always come into play.
