Marbella Club Golf Resort Properties.
If you are looking for a home on an exclusive private golf estate on the Costa del Sol that can truly be called ‘extraordinary’ or ‘aristocratic’, the Marbella Club Golf Resort, with its 24/7 security and breath-taking scenery offers you a location that is truly one of a kind.
This exclusive gated enclave, featuring superior mansions and villas, offers sweeping views of the coastline and across to Africa thanks to its elevated position. Yet you are less than a 10-minute drive from the beach, and a similar distance from the village of Benahavís, renowned for its exceptional restaurants and beautiful river walks.
Along with its mountain range backdrop, residents here have the kind of 360° inspiring views that are a joy to wake up to regardless of the weather and let’s not forget, there are 300 days of sunshine on the Costa del Sol, so grey, wet days are limited in number.
Surrounded by nature’s greenery of gall oaks and Spanish firs, the area teems with wildlife, including the Iberian Ibex and mountain goat.
This idyllic resort is not far from the Sierra de las Nieves natural park, where you have an opportunity to spot a golden eagle or an otter, as well as other protected species. If privacy, security and quality are what you are looking for, as well as ease of access to shops, schools and leisure pursuits, Marbella Club Golf Resort provides it all, and much of it is within the resort itself.
The Marbella Club Legacy.
It can be said that the opening of the Marbella Club Hotel in 1954 was the turning point for what was once a small coastal town and is now a glamorous destination of international fame.
The famous names that have reclined on its sun loungers, or enjoyed its famous Champagne Room, include: Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, as well as the late Princess Diana and other European royals.
Residents of the Marbella Club Golf Resort can enjoy being part of this exceptional history; one that is defined by opulence, excellence and more than a five-star rating.
Marbella Club Golf Course.
Dave Thomas designed the Marbella Club Golf Resort’s superior par 72, 18-hole golf course. A one-time professional golfer, he turned to course design when his playing career was cut short by arthritis.
This particular course is designated “one of the best mountain courses on the Costa del Sol. With some spectacular elevated tee shots, it’s a Dave Thomas special and a true Spanish gem,” says Top 100 Golf Courses, whilst other golf websites call it “magnificent” and “a course that exceeds expectations.” Jack Nicklaus, who often worked with Thomas, said of him, “I think Dave would agree that the hundred or so golf courses he designed and left for generations to enjoy – to allow everyone to enjoy a game that has given so much to both of us – is a legacy that will likely be remembered far more than the golf we played.”
As a Resort resident, you would have privileged access to this 6,247m long course, which is enhanced by carefully contoured fairways, beautiful waterfalls, lakes and strategically placed bunkers.
The undulating and protected greens are maintained to perfection, making this a very special course to play on and with limited play and an average of 30 minutes between tee times, you can be sure that over-crowded rounds are not a concern and morning tee times are guaranteed.
This is evident in the amenities offered to residents, which include a top-level golf course, an equestrian centre and a Club House for meeting friends and neighbours for a coffee, or something stronger.
There are also a number of personalised services, including changing spikes, shoe cleaning and club cleaning.
Marbella Club Golf Club House.
As one would expect, the Club House at the Marbella Golf Resort is a five-star experience, whether you are relaxing after a game of golf, or meeting friends for lunch.
Designed in a thatched cottage style that beautifully blends with its natural surroundings, the club is superbly positioned to provide a view overlooking the golf course and the lake at the first hole.
On cooler days, an open log fire lends its warmth to this rustic interior that recreates the atmosphere of a hunting lodge, one that is in keeping with the aristocratic origins of the Marbella Club.
Indeed, staff also collect golfers’ clubs and place them on the owners’ buggies, removing the need for players to do anything other than walk into the club, knowing their equipment is safe. Buggies come with an icebox and club & ball washing.
Marbella Club Golf: Bar, Coffee Shop & Restaurant.
You certainly don’t need to be a golfer to enjoy the excellent hospitality at the resort’s Club House. In keeping with the culinary reputation of the Marbella Club Hotel, the Club House restaurant has become a chic lunch venue thanks to its ambience of seclusion and tranquillity, as well as its exquisite menu based on Mediterranean cuisine, supervised by Juan Galvez, the Michelin Starred Executive Chef of the Marbella Club.
When combined with the Bar and Coffee Shop, residents don’t need to even leave the resort whether they want a morning coffee, a drink with friends or a delicious lunch.
Marbella Club Golf Equestrian Centre.
There are few residential communities that also offer equestrian facilities in addition to golf. The riding stables at the Marbella Club Golf Resort are not only luxurious, but it also provides an opportunity to expand your leisure activities and those of your family. There is an exciting array of activities for horse riding fans, ranging from treks through the beautiful countryside to preparation for high-level competitions.
The centre has a livery service, which is frequently used by show jumpers, dressage competitors and long-distance and endurance riders. However, you don’t need to own a horse to enjoy all this. The resort’s own horses include Arabian, Spanish, German and French stallions that are available for a hack through the countryside, or riding practice in the state-of-the-art, 4,500m 2 arena; one of only two in the whole of Spain, and the most modern in all of Europe.

Despite its seclusion, it is only minutes from the beaches of Estepona’s New Golden Mile, the restaurants of Benahavís, Guadalmina and San Pedro de Alcántara. Furthermore, you can be in Marbella or Puerto Banús in 15 minutes, with all that they have to offer, including the Marbella Club Hotel.
