The magnificent design of Golf Torrequebrada makes the course very enjoyable. Large and
undulated greens. Strategically placed bunkers and lakes.Shrubs and trees line beautifully
the fairways, highlights palm trees, pines and olive trees. High levelled tees, allowing you to
determin the way of playing each hole. This together with the views overlooking the Mediterranean
Sea and the mountains, convert Torrequebrada Golf into a unique course.
On arrival we were pleasantly surprised. On entering the pro shop to register for our pre-booked tee time we were again pleased by a well stocked shop and professional looking set up. We had already booked one buggy and requested to pay for a second buggy so that our 2 wives would be able to accompanying us. We were advised that this wouldn't be a problem because the course was quiet. They are non golfers but just wanted to spend the day with us to take in the views. HOWEVER, we were then asked if they were correctly dressed! They were not dressed in golfing attire but were dressed sympathetically for the environment.
In 40 years of playing golf I have never been so embarrassed! They were told that because one was wearing sandals and the other had no collar to their top they would not be allowed to go onto the course!! As non golfers was this really a problem? Surely some discretion could be afforded to those, who would after all, only be sat in a buggy! Despite my objection this was non negotiable, but if they wanted they could buy suitable clothing in the shop! We were planning to eat at the club after our game but, because of this, decided against it and advised the receptionist of this. We had to play the course because our green fees had been prepaid, but would have walked away if this had not been the case.
It embarrassed me, my golfing partner and our wives for no reason. After our wives had left to do their own thing for the remainder of the afternoon we then went to the driving range where we saw other ladies in attire which was similarly questionable! Our game was affected by this decision, and the club probably lost +/- 200 euros through our forced change of intentions! The course was in unbelievable condition and really well manicured, and we couldn't fault our golf experience. BUT, for the reason above I'd never recommend the course to others. We were felt like we just weren't welcome and it spoilt the day for all of us. I'm not surprised that the course was quiet!
The course itself was in good shape and it has a enjoyable and good layout to the holes. One of the best in that respect among the course i've played on Costa del Sol. Greens are fast and true with the ball rolling where you set it to go, The fairways are green and nice. The same are the tees. Bunkers are also well manicured and nicely kept.
The servicelevel I experienced on Torrequebrada is the worst I have ever experienced on a golf course around the world !!!! I have never seen anything worse. !!!! The staff in this club couldn't care less about their customers. You're not at all feeling welcome as a player at Torrequebrada, but rather given the feel of disturbing the staff working there. My experience with the staff there are that they are arrogant, unfriendly and generally grumpy.
On my visit on Torrequebrada I had booked my tee-time at 8.00. Like on most other clubs you need to pay greenfee in advance of teeing up the ball. On Torrequebrada they opened the proshop at 08.15 (the guy working was probably a bit to late). When finally opening the proshop he asked "what do you want?". This was of course done in the most arrogant way possible.
After my sound I had a question reardding my greenfee and approched the proshop (wouldn't call it the servicedesk!!!) again and then meet another gentleman. This gentleman was if possible even more arrogant and rude than the one I met before my round. He didn't even want to answer my question !!!!!
It is really a shame that this club provides its visitors with such a horribly bad service. The course itself is in good shape and really fun to play. I would say that such a good course deserves much better people to look after it and to run it than what I actually has today
Bad record of thefts from buggies whilst playing. I had valuables stolen from cart whilst teeing off. The buggy had to be parked onthe path by the tee. The culprits simply lifted the items out from above behind rock wall. Security guards know all about it. Only security guard and guys selling balls by the 7th knew vAluables were their
golf course is splendid, well manicured
and has aged to it. Tee boxes are all flat and tees are changed daily. Fairways are like carpet, pre rough is cut to european standard. bunkers could do with a bit more sand, but this is very personal whilst green are immaculate. All in all if you are after a very nice golf course near Malaga, then don't go anywhere.
However do not expect any kind of services whatsoever, from reservation, welcome, on the course, and Bar the service is a word unknown at Torrequebrada. pathetic really and shameful. i am not going to give you details but golf is about communicating and networking....obviously they have not heard these words overthere!!
To be honest, this is one of the best golf course near Malaga. Mature, well maintained, manicure. Tee boxes are all flat, fairways are immaculate and green are extremely fast and true to the lines. The only downside to this golf course is the people that work there to be honest. We were a party of 7 welcomed by a Dutch man not even looking at us and asking "who are you"? in a very rude way. The rest of his interaction with us was on the level. He asked us to go and get the buggies from the caddy master....got their and the caddy master told us to get the one in front of the Pro shop. Out of 4 buggies, one had the sat nav not working and one died on the 16 hole. When we got back to the clubhouse and complaint we were told that it was our fault as we should have phoned them and let them know.....in insight she was right, however customer care is paramount to the experience and Torrequebrada is a Pit for it? THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU!
So, if you are in for a very nice round of golf and be treated like S..t then it is the place to go. In all fairness they are so many other golf courses around the area that you will have ample choice for much better experience. Rio Real and Malaga CC are two other nearby that we recommend.
