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

Golf course very enjoyable. Condition good, greens good and infinitely better than Chambers bay! Very good value for money.

Aquilon has some absolutely fantastic holes which , with 5 tees to choose from should be playable by all handicappers. The condition of the course was ok and if the greens were up to the standard of Desert Springs then this would be a great course. Not walkable.. need a buggy. A must play if in the area

Course starts and finishes amongst the resort villas but the bulk of the course is in the desert. Very narrow fairways mean that you are often faced with club scratching approaches if wayward. However you are rewarded when you finally reach the fantastic greens. Course is walkable though in the heat I would recommend reasonably priced buggies. A Must play purely since it is unlike any other European course I have played,

A busy holiday course with a decent variety of holes though too many of which were close to villas etc. Tees were in process of being relaid so conditions around teeing area were poor. Greens were ok but not of Desert Springs standard. Wouldn't rush back as prefer Aquilon and Desert Springs.

With the change management the course has had a great improvement, the state is very good despite the hot summer we've had. Besides the new routes are very good for those who do not have much free time. (Translated from a review in Spanish).

The course is within a huge resort and surrounded by a lot of residential and holiday apartments making the fairways appear to be narrower. Some challenging holes and some small greens. Spikes bar is being refurbished at the moment but you could still get a drink before and after the round. My only criticism would be that some of the greens were quite patchy.

We played the Europa course. By far the best course we played. Some amazing holes with the fairways and greens in top condition. The rough can be a bit challenging but it will encourage the average golfer to hit a bit straighter. The club house is amazing with great views of the course. I would 100% recommend this course and I am sure the other two courses are just as good.
