"Narrow course, with good greens, a bit too many trees in the fairway, 18 is too tough ending, could be a bit shorter ( only 2players of 8 finished the hole) otherwise a nice course. Very nice clubhouse with nice staff and good food." - Anonymous

" Skriver på Svenska. Trång och svår bana första gången man spelar där. Överlag fina greener och fairways. Tyvärr dåligt spel tempo men det är inte någon nyhet i Spanien är tyvärr väldigt ofta väldigt dåligt speltempo och spelare på banorna har dåligt golf vett. Sen var det lite strul med golf bilar men det löste sig." - Ulf Gahne

"Dank der Wegbeschreibung von Golfservice haben wir den Platz gefunden. Das letzte Stück führt durch eine Großbaustelle, danach braucht man eine Autowäsche. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Der Platz wurde offensichtlich erleichtert, denn viele Abschläge wurden vorverlegt. Einige blinde Grüns, besonders Loch 17. Zustand der Fairways entspricht der Trockenheit, Grüns mit vielen Pitchmarken, Bunker ok. Der Platz ist sehr bergig mit teilweise langen Wegen, daher Buggy sehr empfehlenswert. Bei einigen Löchern muss man auf dem Pfad bleiben." - Golfwolli

"I've been playing Chaparral for well over 20 years. I've always enjoyed the layout with the exceptions of the 12th and 17th. The main problem has always been the condition of the tee boxes. However this time the greens were in dreadful condition. They looked like it was a combination of unrepaired pitch marks, damage from wildlife and poor cutting. It's a shame because it can be a lovely course." - RemyM

"Access is a mess until construction works are complete, however the course was very disappointing today. Greens were full of plantings, fluffy, and not true. I have always very much enjoyed playing Chaparral but today, not so. The staff and clubhouse as always however, were great and extremely helpful and welcoming." - Anonymous

"L’accueil très sympa et en français. Un peu compliqué d’arriver au golf car il y a beaucoup de travaux autour. Le parcours lui même est vraiment ludique, ça tourne dans tous les sens avec quelques trous que l’on peut attaquer en coupant les dog leg. Les départs ne sont pas en très bon état, et les greens viennent d’être sablé. Je conseille le parcours car très très joueur !!!! Une bonne découverte." - Tyseb

"Tricky course with lots of challenging parts. Must be a rather god golfer for this course We think that the Marshall must be more active with slow players with no mannens to suit us In the future " - Anonymous

"On arrival the service was excellent from all the staff. You definitely need a buggy on this course. On the day we played buggies were only allowed on certain holes. We thoroughly enjoyed the course some great holes. However we walked off with 2 holes to go due to the slow play, waiting on every tee. We did not see any course marshals to move things along either." - Pete

"Located nearby the A7 motorway, easy access, and nice surroundings. Quality of green and fairways was good, although some tee-boxes are in repair and hence yellow, blue and red on the same place for those. Overall an interesting design and surprising course valleys with lots of pine-trees" - ReVer

"Tough course with lots of tight fairways and blind shots. Hard to choose the right shot without a guide. Buggy a must but no leaving the path on most holes. Biggest criticism was the condition of the greens which seemed very weak - they were badly scuffed and pitted where other courses in the area were good. Not a bad course if condition was better but bring plenty of balls." - Neil

"Played Chaparral for the second time and for the second time flights pile up at some tee-shots, causing huge delays. It could be due to the configuration of the course, in such as case it would be recommendable to allow more space between starts. Apart from that, nice course with quite a few challenges." - S-Port

"Kanterna på greenerna var tyvärr dåliga lite övervattnade och tee saknade stundtals gräs men det är ju vinter. Hål 15 är min favorit där green går att nå på utslaget och en eagle är möjlig. Bil är att rekommendera då banan är kuperad." - Anonymous
