Sitting on the hills overlooking the Costa del Sol, El Soto is a 9 hole (par 3) course suitable for all level of players who want to experience the real pleasure of playing golf in southern Spain. It is best for those who want to master the ‘short game’.
Designed by Manuel Pinero, all the nine holes have something to look forward to, although it’s all enjoyable but some holes demands much precision, even experienced players needs to be very much careful while making their shots in the presence of lakes, ravines and bunker.
The 1st hole is slightly downhill with water hazard to the left of the green and asks for a better shot with accuracy and not distance. With 80 meters length, this is the second longest after the final one which is of 85m.
Approaching the 2nd and 3rd hole, you will find large bunker to the right of the green while the water hazard directly in front of the tee stretching some 50 metres requires a long shot to clear the 3rd one.
As far as difficult level is concerned, your skills will have to come to play in the 6th that is placed slightly elevated with a hidden bunker and to over pass a very steep faced bunker for the 7th (the shortest hole at 45 m length).
The final one, known as El Soto’s signature hole, is at the longest distance of 85m. With water from tee to green, so anything short will make a big splash and hence needs a shot that is slightly long.
In addition to sports, the Club brings a number of facilities to your service which include a luxurious bar, café and restaurant, where you will taste a superb choice of culinary dishes in a warm and friendly ambience.
Besides, there is a golf academy, a fully stocked pro-shop and a Club House (Casa Club) with a superb range of facilities such as tennis courts, gymnasium and spa to meet your recreation and fitness needs.
