Torrequebrada Golf Course Costa Del Sol

By: Grahame Simpson

Torrequebrada Golf Course was opened in 1976 and was designed by Jose Pepe Gancedo one of Spain's most promising amateurs who has designed many courses in Spain. The course hosted the 53rd Spanish Open Championship in 1979 and is an undulating course with spectacular views along the coast.

This course is not the longest but still provides a tough test for all golf levels where tee shots are particularly important for scoring well. With views out to the Mediterranean and a large amount and variety of trees and shrubs on the course, it is always a pleasure to play this course.

Torrequebrada has some great holes the following are some playing tips for some of them.

Hole 1 is a par 5 and not an easy start with a dog leg left and a thin green which is well protected with six bunkers.

Hole 3 is a short par 3 and not to tricky but it is one of the best holes for spectacular views of this area and out to sea.

Hole 7 has a high tee position and a tight driving line with out of bounds on the right, bunkers on the fairway and later surrounding the green, and a lake catching the longer drives.

Hole 8 is a sharp dog leg thus needing a drive with the correct club and correct line. You will need an extra club for the approach shot as the green looks closer due to a hollow in front.

Hole 10 is the start of a tough back nine at Torrequebrada. This hole is a dog leg to the left with a lake on the right side. Ideally you want to drive to the right to make the approach easier but don't over club to the green as there is trouble behind.

Hole 13 is a par 3 where you hit 150 meters over a valley. Like many of the holes on this course the green is well protected with bunkers.

Hole 16 is the hardest hole on the course with the tee back amongst the trees and the hole dog leg to the right. The fairway slopes form left to right with a lake running along the right side. There are bunkers amongst the trees on the left and not hit short over the lake to the green otherwise the ball will role back down.

Torrequebrada Golf Course is a challenging course and hard to score well on, unless you plan your hole ahead (and play well!). The clubhouse is friendly with a large terrace to enjoy drinks at the 19th.
