Alcaidesa Links Course

Alcaidesa Links, one of 2 courses at the Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort.

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.

Host to PGA of Andalusia (1993 and 1994), PGA of Spain (1995) and The Ryder Cup Junior Match U.S. against Europe (1997).

In 2011 Alcaidesa Links was included amongst the 20 best links courses on the European continent by Golf World

Facilities at the resort include a 72 bay driving range, a spacious practice area with putting green, bunkers and a short game area and a Club House with café, bar and restaurant service, WiFi and spacious terraces.

Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort has a second course – Alcaidesa Heathland

Look up and enjoy simply the best views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Africa. Playing on a day ticket with Alcaidesa Heathland offers exceptional value.
