The Old Course at San Roque Golf & Country Club in Spain

The Old Course at San Roque Golf & Country Club in the shadows of Valderrama Golf Club is considered one of Costa Del Sol's best rounds of golf.

Built in 1990 by architect Dave Thomas, San Roque's Old Course carries a classic, parkland feel on very rolling landscape that allows for some beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, as well as the Mediterranean Sea a few kilometers in the distance, especially from the 13th tee and 14th green. Seve Ballesteros also redesigned the Old Course's bunkers a few years back.

San Roque Golf & Country Club has since added a New Course, designed by Perry Dye. It is set on similarly spectacular, rolling landscape, but comes with signature Dye family traits like steep bunkering and railroad ties.

Both golf courses are championship in length and have hosted the Spanish Open in recent years. The club facilities are exceptional, including a beautiful clubhouse with multiple dining areas, locker room, driving range and putting and chipping greens.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.

Once an understated, daily-fee course, Valderrama Golf Club in Spain is now widely considered continental Europe's finest. Navigating subtle doglegs on gently undulating parkland terrain through a cork forest, one wonders why every golf course can't be this good.
