"Excellent variety on this course. Only downside was buggies not allowed on fairways on too many holes. Course was in great condition and was so unnecessary. Will certainly return and play again." - Rich S

"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

"Mycket trevlig bana med utmaningar, vissa hål straffar dåligt utslag. Utsikten med breda fairway på flertalet hål och Hål17 är fantastiskt men svårt." - Anonymous

"Hilly course presenting some nice challenges. You can probably play it 10 times and have 10 different feelings as your next shot will be heavily influenced by the ball location. Nice sea-views!" - hooker

"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

"Trevlig bana men dåligt skick på tee samt rätt långsamma greener, Kiosk stängd efter 9:e hålet och rätt långt till klubbhuset för att köpa mat. Otrevliga klubbmedlemmar som spelade tävling vid ett tillfälle." - Micke

"Banan var bra och riktogt kul att spela. Tyvärr blev vi bestulna på plånböcker och mobiltelefoner under rundan så vi har spelat för sista gången på Chaparral. Stölden gjordes på hål 10,11 eller 12.Båda bagarna i våran bil blev av med mobil och plånbok. När vi påtalade detta för personalen på banan så var komentaren, vi hade informerat er om problemen..." - Anonymous

"I always enjoy playing El Chaparral, especially the par 3s the course was in good condition and I normally play well to my handicap of 14. The par 5s are challenging but you need to know the yardage. The bar is excellent with great food, I always enjoy their coffee." - Trevor J

"Spännande, vacker och ganska svår bana med stor variation - kanske lite för många dolda hål men har man spelat en gång så är det OK (saknar dock att det inte ingår banguide). Favorithålet är nog 3:an långt och knepigt men med tre välplacerade slag finns ändå chansen till birdie...!?" - Mithrandir

"The course is placed in a magnificent landscape - without too much buildings around. Many courses in Malaga is destroyed now because of those terrible ugly buildings just close to fairways." - Helge P

"Course was absolutely fantastic, views were stunning. Never played a hole as nice as the par 4 8th. The view from the 12th is one ill never forget and cant wait to play again!" - Shaun McBride

"Played a twilight on this challenging course (hcp. 4). Welcomed by the very friendly staff at the pro-shop, we teed off for a tough round of golf. Most holes were good to very good, but some (due to the lack of space) simply not. Tee boxes basically the same story: OK, but some too small and some uneven. The greens and fairways, however, were fantastic and the pin positions (B) killing! El Chaparral is a golf course were a caddy book, a buggy and a low handicap is no luxury. Unfortunately, no on-course catering available (although promised and a catering-buggy in the parking). Pace of play should be monitored more closely, but still good value for money." - JADF

 2.5 / 5 Chaparral Golf course played: 2015-03-25

"En mycket svår och utmanande golfbana med en del dolda utslag. Jag fick bara 16 slag med ett handicap på 15,6 det var alldeles för lite. Banans skick var heller inte på topp efter allt regnande. Lätt att bli av med många bollar. Trots allt så kommer jag gärna tillbaka." - Thomas G Johansson

 3 / 5 Chaparral Golf course played: 2014-11-17

"Some fairways too narrow. For first timers blind corners you need to buy the little book so you know where you are going! One par 3 my husband almost got hit by a drive on the next hole coming back. He was on the slope pitching up to the green and no protection of trees from other fairway!! Green were awful condition could see shoe marks!!! Tees were bad too! All in all we will not return." - The golfer
