Designed by Folco Nardo as three loops of nine holes, Lauro Golf Club is set on reasonably flat land at an altitude of 300m in the hills behind Malaga (and offering some beautiful views down the valley to the sea). Lauro Golf it is a technical but not difficult golf course demanding concentration and a careful choice of the clubs on the bag.
With 27 holes that can be played in three different combinations the course is moderately flat and can be played by foot though there are two holes located on the side of the mountain and from which we can enjoy some spectacular views over the valley of Guadalhorce and the Mediterranean. Its original eighteen holes are named after famous bullfighters.
A lot of the fairways are narrow and driving accuracy is important, particularly as there are also numerous water hazards and large bunkers to negotiate. The greens are level and true and will normally be found in good condition.
The holes are a good mixture of varying lengths and the par 3’s are a good test. The recent nine holes have added a new dimension to the whole layout and has given the complex that little bit more style and credibility.
