Characterised by being the only links-type golf course in southern Europe. Inaugurated in 1992 and designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark. The topography of the land at Alcaidesa is formed by gentle slopes descending towards the sea, finishing on a beach, creating a front of nearly 2 km.
Open views over the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Africa.
