Highlight the hotel next to the course. (Translated from a review in Spanish).

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.

A lot of work has clearly been done to the course and clubhouse. Excellent tees, signing, fairways and new bunker sand. Clubhouse seating outside area now very pleasant too. A perfect day.

I have played Desert springs quite a lot of times maybe 30 to 40 games over 4 yrs, I have hired a place there and also visited and done a pay and play, The last time I went which was in 2013 I went on a unlimited golf package which to me means I can play in the morning and then again in the afternoon that is unlimited golf I do unlimited as when you are at desert springs you are quite away from everywhere, I did not get unlimited golf as the tee times they gave me was after 10.30 and 2 of the afternoons 1 was at 2.50 and another at 3 I complained and told them I would not even get the round finished it would be dark they agreed and put me on to another course 20 mins away as they could not get me on any earlier, the rounds was taking 5 + hours as it was always so busy with all the offers course was nice but would not book unlimited golf there again as it is not what it seems

As already said, challenging course, putting on this greens is an art. Superfast. Fairways were dry but still normal playable actually good, much better than on El Valle. Clubhouse-disaster (container) with bad serves (no life, like for example Calanova container clubhouse)

Play it love it. Real desert course. The fairways were not in great condition. Nice club house and great resort.

West course: 44€ for green fee and launch, great. Course great layout, difficult, have to know it, some blind holes but playable. Small not fancy, local stile clubhouse. Negative: 8€ for ordinary trolley, 45€ for buggy. A lot of dress code signs, also marshal on the course telling to a player that shorts with side pockets are not allowed, but then no towels to wash after a round!!!! Oops! 20€ for bottle of house wine and more than 3€ for a coke……

Complained as despite we'd specifically booked a 2 ball were put with 2 members who we couldn't converse as we spoke different languages and slowed us up by over an hour as much lower handicaps - Basically treated as if we were just another golf fee and at nearly £75 each I expect more - plus don't do this course if you don't have a medical certificate as very hilly so buggy very advisable - but you have to stay on paths unless you have medical certificate so waste of time
