El Hiqueral is a new 9 hole course, located on the Benahavis road. There are plans to build another nine. The layout of the course is great. Despite that this course is very short it is far from easy. Almost every hole is involves water. Buggies are available but the course is recommended to walk.

"Excellent test of golf with some very challenging holes. The greens were in great condition and the whole experience as one would expect. Unfortunately there were no restaurant facilities which were closed due to refurbishment. This was the only downside as we had arrived in good time. The caddy master got us off early so no major issue." - One of Four!

"We have played this course for the last 7 years. It has never been in a better condition tvang in 2019. Greens are fast and nice. Fairways are green. Just missing a driving range. " - Perono

Finally I got to play some golf. I played El Higueral on the 16th of March. It was a sunny day approx 18 degrees. El Higueral is the perfect course to play after a few days of heavy rain. The course was very dry and in perfect conditions. This is a 9 hole course located on the Benahavis road. This course is popular among residents and our holiday golfers. One of the few courses on the coast that have a daily green fee price.

The staff at higueral are one of the friendliest on the Costa del Sol. There is no club house, they only have a small caddie master with a small pro shop. Drinks and sandwich can be bought at their little “wooden kiosk”. They do have a small terrace overlooking the golf course. Great place to sit and enjoy the sun overlooking the first few holes on the course.

The course is 5,364 meters long from yellow playing twice 9 holes. The lower hcp players like to play this course from white, which is 5,876 meter long. The course has many great holes. Example the hole 3 is a 124 meter par 3. The large green has water all around it which makes the green look very small. Hole 6 is a par 5, 424 meters. The Benahavis river runs along the left side of the hole with beautiful scenic views. In general the maintenance all around the course is perfect and the greens are fast and large.

For me this is the perfect course to play in the afternoon for a quick game of golf after work. Many of our clients like to play the course in the morning then have a second round in the afternoon, since it has a daily green fee price.
