This is the oldest course on the coast. They have 27 holes, the new 9 holes are called the Links playing from 10th hole to 27th hole. The Old course is part links and part parkland. The course is located in a protected natural area, given the innumerable species of birds that live there. Parador Old is a good course to play for our clients that want a quick game same day of arrival or departure.

Course reviews:

 3.1 / 5 Parador de Malaga Golf course played: 2019-06-02

"The service in the restaurant was very poor and the old petrol buggies were in a poor state of repair. The course itself has been steadily declining over the past few years and is now very tired and raggedy. It does not present well and is overpriced. It does not bear comparison with Santana or Los Naranjos." - Carlovian

"Great course to play on first or last day as it is less than ten minutes from Malaga Airport. The course was in lovely nick and the greens were excellent. We had some food and drinks at the course and we were very happy with the quality, service and the price. Will book it again next year." - Anonymous

"This course is flat and a buggy is not required. The greens and fairways where good but some places off the fairways where not looked after very weedy and overgrown. The course is very forgiving on the front 9. The par 3s are long and challenging. I would like to come back and play here again however 80E with Buggy is not worth it. 60E would be more acceptable. The slow play was ridiculous 5 hours for a two ball we lost interest after 13 holes. I believe this is a common problem this is the main reason I would consider going elsewhere." - Anonymous

"Good fairways and greens which are flat and relatively easy to putt on compared to some of the other big courses. However pace of play was awful and we had to abandon the round after 14 holes! There also other clients in the same position." - Don

"Played this course many times and always like it. Its a good test of back tees and good fun to play. Course in very good condition although work being done on fairways but did not affect game. Encountered a rude 4 fourball of expats but that is not that common as most are friendly." - Anonymous

 3.1 / 5 Parador de Malaga Golf course played: 2017-11-07

"The course was very busy. There were a number of high handicap players who were causing hold ups and stewards were in constant harrying mode. We took 3 hours to complete 9 holes and 5.5 hours for the round. They need to give longer intervals between games, this is too long for a round of golf. There is a hotel with bars and restaurants at the course but the facilities for those here for the golf are poor. Nowhere to get a coffee when you arrive in your golf gear. The course itself is nice , if a little long but playable across all handicaps. It is a noisy experience on the course with parakeets screeching and planes landing close over your head.

"Having now played this course for the last three years I would recommend that a patience 5 1/2 hours buggy ride is the call. The course in places is getting tired and probably needs some investment. Nice course, long but will probably next year give it a miss." - mark chennell

"Maintence period had, apparently, been finished the previous week, but hole 15th closed and two other fairways had been returfed and were GUR. The greens are usually a feature of the course and, although recently hollow tinned, were in good condition. Very convenient for the airport, but you have to expect noise from arriving and departing aircraft." - English Ramon

 3.5 / 5 Parador de Malaga Golf course played: 2015-03-29

"Bar and restaurant facilities were very bad, very unpleasant servers. Something you cannot help is that the planes flying over distract seriously. Shower and storage facilities/ towels were minimal. Overall layout of the course is beautiful, would remove the ugly fences at sea side." - Klaver5
