San Roque Club, Old Course

The San Roque Club, formerly the home of the Domecq sherry family sits on a backdrop surrounded by hills and historic cork oak woods. The centrepiece of the club is the Domecq mansion, now the Clubhouse.

Inaugurated in 1991, designed by Dave Thomas, the Old Course along with Real Valderrama and Real Club de Sotogrande became known as the golden triangle of golf. As well as hosting the team and their families in 1997 during the Ryder Cup held in neighbouring Valderrama, the first event under the club’s belt was the European Tour Qualifying School Finals in 1993 held exclusively on the Old Course until 2003. Many players who have since become household names received their tour card at San Roque such as Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose and the Q School finals were held for a further 13 years at the club.

The Old Course is 6,494 metres, Par 72 featuring cork oak woods on the front 9 and water hazards on the back 9 holes.

San Roque Club facilities include a 2-tiered covered driving range with practice areas, putting greens, pitching area and practice bunkers. Club, buggy and trolley rental are available. As well as the catering offered at the Clubhouse there are restaurants serving a variety of cuisine.

San Roque Club has a second course – the New Course

A real golfing challenge. Test yourself against one of the longest and most difficult courses in the area.

Read San Roque Club, Old Course – a review

There is very much to like about the Old Course at San Roque – the wonderfully named (and bitchingly penal) Alcornoques (cork oaks) abound throughout the property. See full review
