El Higueral is part of the Marbella Club Golf Resort. A beautiful 9 hole golf course built around a group of appartments, along the Guadalmina river. It is one of the walkable courses on the Benahavis territory, which does not mean it is an easy course as there is quite a bit of water, plenty of trees and canyons on one side.
Very reasonable prices, but no clubhouse as such, although this will change as plans are to add another 9 holes plus extra facilities.
It is on the road to Benahavis, just across the bridge halfway.
Atalaya Golf & Country Club has been one of the most popular clubs on the Costa del Sol since opening in 1968. Located between Marbella and Estepona, it is the course you pass on the left when driving up to Benahavis village. It is suitable for all levels of play, from total beginners to international pro´s, due to the flexibility of its tees. The old course is one of the more forgiving golfcourses in the area and is on Estepona territory, the new course is more hilly and on Benahavis soil. Atalaya also has one of the most extensive driving ranges in Spain, where tuition is offered in several languages.
Between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona, take the Benahavis exit, and drive direction the village of Benahavis, 2nd street on the left leads you right to the clubhouse.
