This is the yardstick by which all other golf courses in Europe are measured.

This course, which has hosted the Volvo Masters, the Ryder Cup and the World Championships, is on every pro and amateur’s ‘must-do’ list. World renowned architect Robert Trent Jones designed this 18-hole huge championship course and even as a non-golfer I can appreciate the wonderful natural backdrop. Ancient oaks, wild olive trees, beautifully-created lakes and views down to the sea make this one of the most visually striking places to play golf anywhere on earth. My golfing friends tell me that it’s also one of the most difficult.
