Valderrama Golf Club – Best Known for Golf Course in Europe

Valderrama Golf Club – Best Known for Golf Course in Europe

Valderrama was constructed in 1974 as “Sotogrande New,” to the designs of leading American golf course architect Robert Trent Jones. Renamed “Las Aves” in 1981, it was acquired by Jaime Ortiz-Patiño in 1984. The golf course was redesigned and expanded by the original architect and became “Valderrama.”

By 1999, Valderrama was rated the top course in mainland Europe by Golf World magazine.

The fourth hole, La Cascada, is the course’s signature hole. It is a par 5 with a pond to the right of the two-tiered green. The practice ground was called the best in Europe by Nick Faldo.

The club’s course was the traditional host of the now defunct Volvo Masters, hosting the event from 1988 to 2008, with a five-year break when the event was moved to the Montecastillo Golf Club
