Chaparral Golf Club is a 18 hole golf course situated in one of the most privileged settings on the Costa del Sol, close to Fuengirola and less than half an hour from Malaga airport and Marbella.
It´s the only course on the Costa del Sol with 6 par 5's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 3's and though not excessively long (5,800 meters), you will find a large variety of holes that are enjoyed by players of all levels.
Its success has been assured by the exceptional surroundings, facilities and quality of service.
The magnificent sea views (only 700 meters from the beach) together with the rich vegetation and the surrounding lush pine tree forest have turned Chaparral into a natural and golfers´ paradise with a unique scenery from every hole.
What a beautiful course!.... just played here on 23rd November, after playing Cala Nova (fine, but rough & ready) & Cabopino (again beautiful, but slow-going & often confusing layout).... this course was not as difficult as we were led to believe, with lush, wide fairways & some cracking 150m+ par 3's...we arrived half an hour early at 1 PM, but were allowed by the very friendly staff to play virtually straight away, with no queuing & no-one up our backsides.... OK, some of the greens were hardly billiard tables, but isn't adaptability a key factor in golf?...a lovely course, which will become a regular venue for us.
Have played this course every year for the last 6 years and its our favourite of around 13 courses we have played. Never below 8/10 and when the greens are at their best definitely 10/10. The 11th hole is like a toboggan run and if you walk off with a par then you will carry the memory for a long time!
A very pretty and challenging golf course , how ever I will never go back the course was seriously over booked and the round took 7 hours which is just disgraceful! the staff didn't seem bothered and acted like this was the normal .
Rating this course in the moment would be unfair. The course with its surrounding is one of the best and unique on Costa del sol. But,.....something happened to the course between February and October. The fairways and greens are in really bad condition. It looks that they are working on it so give them a time (we played-in rated order-Alcaidesa links, Marbella G&CC, Alhaurin).
